All dams and sires are DNA, XRay, and Holter tested before a breeding takes place.
The following are explanations on the heath testing that is done.

Von Willebrand Disease

Von Willebrand disease (VWD) is a genetic disorder caused by missing or defective von Willebrand factor (VWF), a clotting protein. VWF binds factor VIII, a key clotting protein, and platelets in blood vessel walls, which help form a platelet plug during the clotting process.

Dialted Cadiomyopathy

Dialted Cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a heart disease in which the heart becomes thinly walled, dilated, and ceases to contract properly. This causes a backflow in circulation due to valves weakening. The blood doesn’t enter the heart normally, which results in congestive heart failure.

Alba Holter Monitor: To detect and manage Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM) early, yearly 24-hour Holtering is crucial.

Degenerative Myelopathy

 Degenerative myelopathy (DM), also known as chronic degenerative radiculomyelopathy (CDRM), is a disease affecting the spinal cord, resulting in slowly progressive hind limb weakness and paralysis. The symptoms result from degeneration of the white matter of the spinal cord. DM is similar to some of the forms of human amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

Hip and Elbow Dysplasia

OFA Hips and Elbows: Veterinarians and responsible breeders of purebred dogs are well aware that hip dysplasia and other inherited diseases can be controlled by careful, selective breeding programs. This is done to ensure no dysplasia is found in the animal.
