Breed Standard Review Committee
This committee will review the SCWT Breed Standard for potential revisions and/or changes; specifically, as regards the wording of the section on front and rear dewclaws. This is following a request by the CKC to reword these sections. The Breed Standard has not been reviewed since 2002.
The Health Committee will explore the many health issues that are associated with our breed in an attempt to provide the membership timely information.
The committee will also look at ways to encourage or help breeders understand and abide by the SCWTAC’s Breeders Code of Ethics. Members may wish to breed their Wheaten but for one reason or another do not have a mentor to help guide and direct them.
The SCWTAC has an opportunity to do good for our wonderful breed. In 2015 and again in 2016 members have generously given donations to the SCWTAC. The SCWTAC is now in a position to lend support to worthy Wheaten causes.
Some Directors have reached out to Canadian Veterinary Colleges to find pertinent information in this regard. We would like other suggestions in ways the SCWTAC can help our breed.
If members have suggestions where the SCWTAC’s support could be used, please inform the Committee. You can join the Committee by emailing Sylvia Hamilton at firstname.lastname@example.org and copy Dianne Mackie at email@example.com.
The Constitution Committee is currently working on the review and revision of the SCWTAC Procedures Document, Code of Ethics and Breeders Guidelines. These documents have not been updated since 2001. The revised sections will be presented to the Board of Directors for approval and then to membership for voting and ratification.
