The breed specific instructions, BSI, identify areas of risk and aim at preventing possible future problems. The BSI document is a complement to the breed standard and aims at reminding the show judge and to alert his/her awareness about the risks of exaggerations.

These instructions are the result of an inventory made possible through extensive collaboration between dog show judges, breed clubs, veterinary surgeons and health insurance statistics.

This inventory constitutes the basis for the selection of the high profile breeds and for the written directions for each individual breed.
