We believe that in order to give your puppy the best start possible , it is important to ensure the pup's parents have both been thoroughly health tested. We want our potential puppy owners to know that longevity and good health are important goals in our breeding program. Therefore we take our time researching potential mates for our dogs. Unless otherwise noted, our girls (and the potential sires where possible) have had the following health tests completed prior to breeding and results will be posted on the OFA website: 

CLAD (Canine Leukocyte Adhesion Deficiency)

DM (Degenerative Myelopathy)

GLD (Globoid cell leukodystrophy) Irish Setter type, also known as Krabbe disease

Hip Dysplasia

PRA-rcd1 and PRA-rcd4 (Progressive Retinal Atrophy)


We have also recently added testing for Von Willebrands Disease

We strive for OFA CHIC certification for our dogs prior to breeding. More information can be found on the OFA website at: OFA CHIC Programs
