BSI发布关于赛犬护理新规范

发布时间: 2018-03-12 14:11:28   审校:睿智  

英国标准协会(BSI)发布了一项关于在训练犬舍内饲养赛犬的新规范。该规范范围全面,涵盖了狗舍的建造、寝具、饮食以及赛犬正确的兽医护理等要求。

PAS 251:2017—供赛犬训练师和赛犬居住的狗舍规范是由英国环境、食品和农村事务部(Defra)在政府针对赛犬二级立法的审查后首次提出的。

PAS 251是基于最佳规范和动物福利组织、兽医和行业专家的共同经验为住宅中的赛犬犬舍提供了一个基于协商一致规范目标是提供一个支持良好福利规范的狗舍标准。

规范涵盖有关犬舍物理构造的要求,包括单位尺寸、采光、通风、犬舍内饰、排水和电器。PAS中也概述了赛犬训导师日常所担忧的问题,如接种疫苗、清理废物、清洁和消毒以及食物的准备和存储。

规范中还包括了有关犬舍的环境要求——包括锻炼、监测行为、卫生和福利、,训导和训练等内容。赛犬和所有动物一样,尽管受过专门的训练,也可能出现不可预测的情况。因此,PAS 251涵盖应急预案措施,犬舍的安全和隔离设施等相关要求。

PAS 251受到英国赛犬理事局(Greyhound Board of Great Britain)的赞助,适用于所有种类的赛犬运动,无论是由地方当局授权还是由负责颁发许可证和得到英国皇家认可委员会(UKAS)认可的监管机构授权。规范的实施是自愿的,它并不能代替现有的关于动物福利法律中

规定的义务。

虽然PAS 251对饲养两只赛犬以上的犬舍而制定,但该项标准也适用于两只及以下赛犬的犬舍。规范涵盖赛犬长期居住的犬舍,而不是赛马场中为赛犬参赛前而设计的临时犬舍。

BSI 的监管和恢复市场开发部负责人安妮·海思(Anne Hayes)指出:“英国人都是爱狗人士,赛犬是我们最为熟知的一种品种。在制定PAS 251的过程中,BSI将知名动物保护机构和行业专家聚集在一起,为那些住宅狗舍中的动物创造最好的训练照顾。

“新规范旨在做到对赛犬训练师来说既要现实可行又要可实现,如果被用作某一认证或检查方案的基础,也要可衡量和审计。”

PAS 251不适用于其它品种的狗,也不适用于退赛的赛犬,如栋犬再安置组织。商用性赛犬的繁育机构也不在本规范规定的范围之内。

以下组织作为指导小组的成员参与了PAS 251的制定工作:巴特西猫狗之家;英国环境、食品和农村事务部(Defra);狗狗基金会;英国赛犬局;赛犬论坛;赛犬训练师协会;赛犬信托;马场推进协会;英国防止虐待动物协会(RSPCA);赛犬兽医协会;英国养犬协会;英

国皇家认可委员会(UKAS)。

 

New specification for care of racing greyhounds launched

BSI, the business standards company, has launched a new specification for looking after racing greyhounds housed in residential trainers’ kennels. The specification is comprehensive in its scope, covering requirements for constructing the kennels, bedding, diet, and the appropriate veterinary healthcare of greyhounds, among other requirements.

Development of the specification, PAS 251:2017 Specification for greyhound trainers’ residential kennels, was first recommended by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) following a government review of secondary legislation specific to greyhound racing.

PAS 251 provides a consensus-based specification for residential racing greyhound kennels based upon best practice and the collaborative experience of animal welfare organizations, veterinarians, government and industry specialists. The goal of this specification is to provide a kennel standard that supports good welfare practice.

The specification covers requirements related to the physical construction of the kennel, including the unit sizing, lighting and ventilation, kennel interiors, drainage, and electrical appliances. Day-to-day concerns for greyhound handlers’ – such as vaccinations, waste removal, cleaning and disinfectant, and food preparation and storage – are outlined in the PAS. 

The environmental enrichment of the kennelled greyhounds – including requirements for exercise, monitoring behaviour, health and welfare, handling and training – is also covered in the specification. Greyhounds, like all animals, can be unpredictable even when expertly trained. Accordingly, PAS 251 covers emergency precautions, kennel security, and isolation facilities.

Sponsored by the Greyhound Board of Great Britain, PAS 251 is applicable to all types of greyhound racing, whether licensed by the local authority or a regulatory body responsible for issuing licenses and accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS). The implementation of the specification is voluntary; it does not replace the obligations set out in existing animal welfare legislation. 

Whilst intended for kennels which house more than two racing greyhounds, PAS 251 may also be used as guidance for kennels which house two or fewer greyhounds. The specification covers where a greyhound permanently resides, rather than kennels at racecourses designed as temporary kennelling prior to a greyhound taking part in a race.

Anne Hayes, Head of Market Development for Governance and Resilience at BSI, said: “Britain is a nation of dog lovers, and the greyhound is one of our best known breeds. In creating PAS 251, BSI brought together renowned animal charities and industry experts to create best practice care for these animals in residential kennels.

“This new specification is intended to be both realistic and achievable for trainers of greyhounds, whilst also being measurable and auditable if used as a basis of a certification or inspection scheme.”

PAS 251 is not intended for other breeds of dogs, nor is it intended to apply to kennels that only accommodate greyhounds which are retired from racing, such as a greyhound re-homing organization. Commercial greyhound breeding establishments also fall outside the scope of this specification.

The following organizations were involved in the development of PAS 251 as members of the steering group: Battersea Dogs & Cats Home; Defra; Dogs Trust; Greyhound Board of Great Britain; Greyhound Forum; Greyhound Trainers Association; Greyhound Trust; Racecourse Promoters Association; RSPCA; Society of Greyhound Veterinarians; The Kennel Club; UKAS.
