Frequently asked questions
What Health Testing Do you do?
Almost all of Our dogs are DNA genetically tested, and OFA certfifed right at 1 year.
We are fighting hard to stand out with our health testing. Many breeders do not go the lengths that we do to ensure my parent dogs are healthy, and breeding quailty. We make our health testing available to the public so that we can show we are proud, with no dark shadows on our dogs.
