Full victory for the dogs!

In 2021, the Norwegian Society for Protection of Animals (NSPCA) launched a formal lawsuit against the Norwegian Kennel Club (NKK), two breed clubs, and six individual breeders over violation of the breeding section in the Animal Welfare Act section 25.

The case was carefully considered by an experienced district court judge and two co-judges who are veterinarians and geneticists, respectively. Several of the expert witnesses in the case possess the highest professional competence in their fields, and the major health problems these dogs are bred with were thoroughly evaluated.

Finally, a unanimous verdict concludes that it is illegal to breed English Bulldog and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel in Norway.
