Mixed breed dog, for example participating in dog shows, obedience, bloodtracking, freestyle or compete in agility. Some unofficial exhibitions are also especially arranged for only mixed breed dogs.

The reason why crossbreed dog may not participate in some official exhibitions or contests is because the dog is not a registered PEDIGREE DOG. Purebred dogs are assessed based on the breed standard, which includes some mills- and race specific test that is especially intended for measuring various properties of breed, which is then used as a support for the coming breeding.

For us at Sveland Pet Insurance is all dogs equally important - bred among races. Therefore, we have favorable conditions for such breeds of purebred dogs. Our hope is that all dogs should have adequate insurance, so that there will not be an issue if the owner can afford to let the vet treat.

Suggested activities for your blandis:

Pet Insurance on interracial / unregistered dogs.

In March came a report from the insurance company AGRIA among breeds were underrepresented in being insured. Swedish Kennel Club spokesperson Hans Rosenberg was then interviewed on the matter. His answer came out of Sweden's largest dog Dog News blog. Blandis Rix found it a bit odd not to be asked in this matter. As we and not SKK should be the organization that have the best knowledge of breeds.

Additionally, commented Hans Rosenberg on a, what we did, Inquisition manner towards the country's mongrel dog owners. Which made Blandis Rix Chairman wrote a post.

Then the debate continued for several posts in the blog.

Mongrel dogs live more dangerous than pure-bred

Posted on 17 mars, 2016 by dognewss

A new study from the insurance company Agria shows that as many as 65 percent of all owners of mixed breed dogs choose not to go to puppy training. And among the races also suffer significantly more often by accident than their purebred dogs.

It takes not to go on the course in the same way, to educate oneself, so it is perhaps a little more liberal upbringing. The dog can run free, running across the road and get hurt, believes Hans Rosenberg, press spokesman at the Swedish Kennel Club, write

All owners of mixed breed dogs MUST read this if SKKs 12 golden rules for dog owners, would save a lot of money and suffering for both dog and owner.

We believe that some owners simply often let their dogs run off leash, partly because they "can" partly because the owner is not experienced enough, but "think" they could.
