Bearded Collie Annual Health Survey 2022

It's that time of year again, folks! In order to collect ongoing health data on as many Bearded Collies in the UK as possible the UK bearded collie clubs jointly run an annual health survey which is open in February each year. This is for ALL Kennel Club registered Bearded Collies regardless of whether they are show dogs, breeding dogs, activity dogs or pets.

Please submit information on ALL your Bearded Collies - we need to know about the healthy dogs as well! You can also complete this if you have had a dog die in the last 12 months please just state that the dog has died when you tell us about the health problem. This survey is really short and easy to complete (about 2 minutes) and is totally anonymous. It is aimed at getting everyone together to safeguard the future of our breed. We will publish the results for all to access on the club’s web sites later this year. Please click on this link to take part. This is also a good time to remind you that you can enter also health data on the Beacon Health site by following this link. You will then be reminded to update this annually.
