The GSBC is made up of 3 representatives from each of the 4 UK based Breed Clubs. Their job is to represent the views of those clubs thus bringing a wealth of experience and knowledge together. This enables the breed to speak with one voice to the Kennel Club and to all members on significant issues.
Health matters are a particular area of interest.
The Breed Council also draws up the Judging Lists
It does not have a separate membership from the Breed Clubs and it does not raise/ hold funds other than enough to cover expenses for meetings and administration.
Matters for the breed Council must come through one of the member clubs.
