These are but a few of the tests we have done over the years, quite a few breeders now do DNA tests for Juvenile Cataracts, very few do a full panel of tests, we were among the first, if not the first to do this in 2008.
We also x ray male dogs spines and some females depending on lines and how well we know them.
I will not go through and show every individual test done in the past, just enough so you know it HAS been done, as I get time, I will put up tests done on dogs currently being used used.
It is important to understand that NO amount of testing ensure that every puppy will be fault free, that just does not happen in any known breed,
What testing does do is greatly lessen the chances of a faulty pup, and our guarantee includes the offer of a replacement puppy in the event of serious spinal defects that are genetic in origin, many Boston Guarantees exclude Hemi Vertebrae !

You can click on the icons below to see what tests are involved. The tests presented below in Acrobat are for some of our old dogs, long since retired DNA tests go back to 2008 full panel tests to 2011 as these became available.
I have only put a few up of the many we have done just to show that we have always been heavily into tests, those for our current dogs may be seen beside their photos on Current Breeding Dogs page
We have always led the way as far as testing goes, Shows we do not do, we breed for healthier pets and are not interested in shows until such time as the health of a dog is not compromised by a fashionable 'shape' as it is at present.
