Hip and Elbow Scores Publishing
The Kennel Club publishes all BVA Hip and Elbow scoring schemes results on a quarterly basis in the Breed Record Supplement hard copy booklet, usually referred to as the ‘BRS’. This book covers all breeds and also includes all the litter registrations, ownership transfers, imports, exports, name changes, titles won, affixes awarded, breed registration numbers, etc. This publication can be privately purchased from the Kennel Club and is sent out to all Breed Clubs so is considered public domain especially when most of the individual health and pedigree related information is also freely available to all on the Kennel Club website database via MyKC.
For many years we have been extremely grateful to former committee member Aileen Barnard who has extracted all the Bernese records from this publication and they have previously been published in the club magazine or as a loose sheet. On this page we collate all the hip and elbow records from the last few years as it is helpful to have them all in the same place.
The quarterly reports are referred to below by their year and then number as follows,
Spring – January to March is – 1
Summer – April to June is – 2
Autumn – July to September is – 3
Winter – October to December is – 4
For example – 2018 – 3 shows the report for dogs whose scores were registered by the Kennel Cub from the BVA during July, August or September 2018.
