Resolution by the Rhodesian Ridgeback World Conference 2016

voteAs a response to the FCI suggestion of introducing a ridgeless variant (please see the presentation by Astrid Indrebø on the program page) the congress majority voted for the following resolution:

The 2016 Rhodesian Ridgeback World Congress recognizes that breeders are autonomous and are the best arbiters of what should happen in their whelping box. To that end, the 2016 RRWC strongly encourages breed clubs to avoid punitive language in their codes of ethics or other official documents regarding the breeding of health Rhodesian Ridgebacks with only cosmetic faults, and strongly encourages openness and honesty between breeders.
