HEALTH & DNA TESTING
As we strive to produce our next generation, our philosophy is to selectively mate sound, health tested, mature adults. We follow the health testing recommendations provided by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA). We also like to use EMBARK's Advanced DNA Testing for Breeders as it is another tool to help us produce the healthiest chin possible.
