We follow the advice of our veteriarians for managing breedings. We do natural breedings, no AI's and no frozen semen (yet) and natural births...we have never needed a cesarean section. We do not have pregnant dams radiographed (to avoid exposure). All dogs are health tested before breeding. Our dog's records are open and available for your review either in our files, or in OFA.org's database. For health test results on the OFA site, please go to www.ofa.org and inquire using the AKC numbers in the listings below. If a test is missing, there are reasons such as waiting for the dog to be old enough for the test and pending appointments and results. Most importantly, we breed for overall perfection...and know we'll never get there, but that's the goal nonetheless. The proof is in the progeny. 3 year health guarantee for hips, heart and eyes.
