ILU Reproduction Survey report. September 2011At the meeting of the International Leonberger Union in September 2009, there was a discussion about what appeared to be a high number of bitches failing to conceive following mating. It was decided to undertake a survey to learn more. In March 2010 the survey was launched. It was posted on the Union website in a "clickable" electronic format in 4 languages, as well as being separately circulated to owners via national Leonberger clubs.
In September 2010, an interim report was briefly presented at the Union meeting in Leonberg. The survey was closed in March 2011, having been "live" for 12 months. The full report was recently presented at the meeting in Leonberg on Saturday the 24th of September 2011.
