In-depth Genetic Testing

We believe the health of your puppy is the most important aspect of our breeding program.  We test all our dogs for over 150 health and genetic conditions before we breed them.  Our dogs have been cleared in every aspect.  Most breeders only offer a handful of testing.  Ours is extremely extensive because we want to do everything in our power to ensure a long, happy, healthy life for the puppies we produce.


Areas we test include blood, hormones, immune system, eyes, kidney & bladder, brain, spinal cord, heart, muscular, metabolic, gastrointestinal, neuromuscular, skin, skeletal along with several others.


Below are some of the tests we conduct.  Being there is over 150, this is just a sampling.  Full reports are always available.  We are a very transparent breeding program.
