WHAT IS A PEDIGREE?

An FCI Pedigree is a printed document that displays the lineage of an FCI dog and important information about the ancestors in a dog’s family tree. It is basically the official ID card of your dog - if she has a Pedigree you can be sure her breed, age, health status and her breeder's data are trustful and correct.

 

 

 

 

 

 

WHAT IS A BREED STANDARD?

For every breed of pedigree dog, there is a breed standard. This is a picture in words that describes the breed in detail, including what a healthy dog of that breed should look like, how it should move and what their character, needs and behaviour are likely to be.

Almost all breeds of dogs were developed over time to help humans in their work and daily life. Although most dogs are now companions and do not need to work, you should learn about what job your intended breed was developed to do. This will help you understand the innate behaviour for that breed and whether you are able to give your dog a happy, healthy life that is appropriate for that breed.
