When breeding a litter, it is important to aim to improve the
standard of our dogs, be it conformation, temperament, or health.
We are fortunate that these days there are many Health Tests
available to help us reduce, and often prevent hereditary problems.
All my dogs have had their hips, elbows, and eyes tested under
the relevant BVA scheme. These tests are the minimum I would wish any bitch
wanting to use them to have had done. My current stud dogs,are
also DNA tested clear for Optigen PRA, EIC and CNM.
