Czech Survey

Dogs and Puppies

The Czech System for Breed survey
The Czech Republic Breed Survey is similar to the DDR Wertmessziffer. In addition to numbers, they use a series of letters, in the breed survey. The table below is a translation of a Czech “Bonitacni Karta”, (Survey card), and describes the various numbers and letters used to describe each dog

Part I is valid from 1990 to present.
Part II is valid for surveys completed prior to 1990.
