Those who breed working dogs, are your dogs health tested? What about those who purchase working dogs from breeders? Are their dogs health tested too? If yes, what kind of health tests have they gone through? Just wondering……..
I only know a few users in here such as Curtis, Greekman, Dutch and Jen who own and breed working dogs. If you guys see this question please answer. TQ

I have sporting dogs and hounds, and have both bred and purchased from other breeders.
Our dogs are all OFA tested for hips, eyes, hearts and thyroids, CERF and PRA tested for eyes.
I doubt that many even know what CNM is, let alone test for it.
How about Factor VII Defiance
“Testing is awesome but I’ve seen some people test for some weeeiiiiiird stuff…if the test doesn’t apply to you or your breed there’s no need to get it done.”
What about RCND?
As I see it, the problem is that most don’t even know what tests apply to them and their breed.
