About Health




I try to keep health scores listed on dogs' individual pages on my website, but this page will offer an overview of all dogs owned by me and bred by me that have been health tested. I've also listed their COI for 10 generations and for all generations.
When planning litters I try to select dogs that complement my bitches in every way while also bringing down COI or who at the least do not significantly increase COI. I like using mature or older studdogs who have been used sparingly. It provides me the knowledge these dogs have reached a certain age in good health and condition and gives me the opportunity to see mature offspring out of them. This does not mean I am opposed to using younger dogs or ones that have had a larger number of litters. I appreciate each dog for what they have to offer to the breed as a whole, to my breeding and to a particular bitch I am considering mating them to.
In The Netherlands hipscoring is the only health test required for Bearded Collies when being bred. As of 2016 I have decided to also have their elbows scored going forward. Jay will be first of mine to have his elbows scored, though some I have bred that are owned by others have already been elbow scored.
As is evident from the list below I am not in the habit of having eye tests done that require redoing every year. Early 2017 I have had my dogs CEA DNA tested, with the exception of my two Wollewuif beardies who have never and will never be used in breeding. The result is that my current breeding stock is CEA Clear or Hereditary Clear (HC).
