Hi All,

From the ANKC regarding DNA Parentage Testing for registration

Dear Secretaries,

The Board of Directors at their meeting held in Melbourne on 22 June, 2019 resolved effective immediately to rescind the decision to implement compulsory DNA parentage testing on 1 January 2020.

As a result, Clause 6.13 (refer below) has been removed from ANKC Regulations Part 6 – The Register & Registration:

β€œ6.13 Parentage Proven for Registration (Added 06/18, 5.1)
6.13.1 All puppies whelped after 01 January 2020 and being registered on the ANKC Ltd database as Main Registered are to be Parentage Proven by DNA. All results are to use the International Society for Animal Genetic (ISAG) marker and are to be submitted to the member body prior to registration.
6.13.2 Where a breeder makes application to upgrade a dog to the Main Register then the dog is to be Parentage Proven as per 6.12.1 prior to being upgraded.
6.13.3 Collection and testing of the DNA sample is to be conducted pursuant to protocols at Section 2 of these Regulations.
6.13.4 All dogs, frozen semen and Fertilised Ova imported into Australia from 01 January 2020 are to be Parentage Proven in accordance with this section.
6.13.5 All Frozen semen registered after 01 January 2020 is to be Parentage Proven in accordance with this section.”

It is with great sadness that I inform the RCV membership of the passing of Helen Sampsonidis. Helen, along with her adoring husband Nick, have been involved with the Rottweiler for many decades as owners and breeders. Together they organised the RCV obedience for many years and ran classes from Doncaster, Templestowe and KCC Park, where Helen loved instructing the puppy class.

Her love of Rottweilers and training saw her invite strangers that were having troubles with their dogs to her house nearly every weekend for a coffee, scones and some socialisation with their pets. At times there were 6-10 dogs and their owners gathered at their house, where she treated every body the same. With warmth, love and understanding both the dogs and people concerned not only got better and improved but many of them became friends. Helen always had this knack for making friends, as she was a caring, kind, magnetic person and people wanted to be friends with her.

Helen unfortunately battled cancer and the debilitating effects of treatment for many years.

Our sincere condolences go out to Nick, their son Andrew and daughter-in-law Jess. Rest in Peace Helen, surrounded by your beloved Rottweilers. πŸΎπŸ’œ
