Tamaskan Rescue UK

 

 

The accredited breeders scheme was started in 2008. Although it has been revised quite a few times since then, it still serves the same purpose today. The scheme was designed to help promote good husbandry from our TDR registered members. Those who wish to take part can use their Bronze, Silver and Gold medals on their websites to show people that they are doing their best for their dogs and puppies and it is a badge of honour and shows they are providing top quality service to their customers.

As well as benefiting the breeders it also benefits the breed, by testing their breeding dogs for health issues that exist in the German Shepherd, Siberian Husky etc they are also safeguarding the future health of the Tamaskan breed and catching any signs of genetic illness early on.   Also some requirements such as the Gold level  IV.  Do not do repeat matings but use new male for each litter helps to keep the Tamaskan gene pool diverse and discourages inbreeding.
