My aim is to breed as healthy, conformation sound puppies with the ability to work as a gundog.
I believe if I am going to take a dog out to be a “gundog” I want to be sure that the dog can physically & mentally to do the job. All my own dogs have had hip & elbow scores as well as DNA tests.
The reason I am passionate about this is my first chessie had Degenerative myopathy (DM). I wanted to make sure that no puppy I bred had to go through a disease that is preventable. Back when Mudge was born there wasn’t a test for DM, there is now. Part of the reason my dogs are also tested for EIC whilst we have no recorded incidents in the UK population. The testing labaratory had the blood so for the extra money it made sense to me to get the test done at the same time.
I have with Broc’s litter followed the “Puppy Culture” program. I intend to continue with this
