We hope you enjoy visiting our web site and seeing
the dogs that we have produced both in the past and in the
present. We enjoy all of our dogs and interact with them daily.
We breed only dogs that are good healthy dogs. We try to evaluate
each breed for the health problems that occur in that breed
before we breed them.
Bernese Mountain Dogs:
Our Berners have both hips and elbows x-rayed and
submitted to OFA for evaluations. We have done the vWD genetic
test on all our breeding dogs and know the status of all.
We have tested all their eyes with board certified ophthalmologist
and have most of them registered with CERF. Once our females
reach a certain age (5 years) they are not done as often since
most of the eye problems we are checking for begin before
that age. Our stud dogs are checked yearly if they are still
in a breeding program.
All of our Irish Setters are x-rayed and registered
with OFA before any breeding is done. Since we test bred our
dogs years ago, our dogs all come from genetically clear stock
in regard to PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy). We have also
done blood tests from Optigen to verify most of the test breedings
that were done. The setters we breed are good healthy dogs
with lovely coats and a dark mahogany color.
