The club has been working with Dr Tom Lewis, geneticist with the Animal Health Trust and Dr Alison Ruhe, geneticist with Embarkvet in the USA. We have based our plans on the advice given to the club by these experts and have negotiated a club discount price for the Embark DNA health tests which looks at over 200 conditions that may affect the breed. Due to the complexities involved in individuals registering dogs with Embark and to obtain the best price for our members the PTCGB has agreed to purchase the test kits directly as a club, and to distribute them to owners at cost. The PTCGB have also agreed that the cost of shipping from the USA to the UK will be borne by the club. As a further gesture of goodwill this test will be available to any owner of a Plummer terrier irrespective of club membership. Those owners who wish to participate must supply a copy of their dogs Plummer terrier pedigree, issued by the breeder and agree that the PTCGB may retain a copy of the results. This is needed so that we may gather as much information as possible and will be used to provide future breeders with accurate advice. Once your application is approved you will be asked to make payment, to the PTCGB, and the test kit will be forwarded which you will then return to Embark. Test results will then be posted to owners. Participants can be assured that any information provided will not be shared with a third party unless prior authority is given by the owner. Readers will appreciate that due to Corvid-19 there may be difficulties with the supply from the USA, however we hope that things will improve over the coming months. Those people who are interested in participating and therefore helping the breed should indicate your interest by email address mailto:email@example.com by joining our Facebook page where updates will also be available.
