Of the management board, we were allowed to receive the following new possibilities for location control and adaptation of implementing rules:

"To all members of the Board of Directors


Assumed governance,

In 2012, the location controls were created. Under the Implementing Rules, field employees can check the entire location. The disadvantage, however, is that the control can only take place if a breeder takes a service to the board of Management, thinking of requesting a kennel name or pedigrees for a litter. The past period has shown that this is insufficient. The Board of Management has therefore decided to amend the implementing rules. Article 2.1 shall be extended so that a check can also be made if one or more complaints have been received from the management board about the location of a breeder. Such a check may take place unannounced. The new rules will enter into force on 1 November 2018.

The full implementation rules for the location control can be found on the website of the Management board: https://www.houdenvanhonden.nl/fokken-met-je-hond/kennelnaam/. The board hopes to have more handles to intervene in situations such as the Dachshund breeder in Woerden.


Furthermore, the Board has decided to amend the Rules of implementation for awards. Recently, the Board decided to withdraw a golden Erespeld. In The implementing rules, however, there was no rule for this; The board has used the coat of rack article. It is foreseen that in the future it may be more necessary to withdraw an award. For this reason, the Board decided to amend the implementing rules.

A new article has been added (article 23), which states that the Board may decide to withdraw an award if, in the opinion of the board, the Kynologie impairs the decorated.


The opportunity has also been used to adjust the maximum penalties referred to in the limitation period from €225 to €275 in the implementing rules. This is better in the current reality of fines imposed by the disciplinary college.

The new rules will enter into force on 1 November 2018. You can find the full implementation rules on the website of the Management Board: https://www.houdenvanhonden.nl/over-ons/onderscheidingen-binnen-de-kynologie/
