**DNA Health clearances for all four parents in these litters are planned in such a manner that they should not produce the following eye disorders PRA 1, PRA 2, PRDC PRA. The muscle disorder: Degenerative Myelopathy is also avoided and the skin disorder: Ichthyosis A will not be produced. ( Icht.....means fish scales in Greek, the animals with this disorder are not itchy, they just have skin that flakes like fish scales. This can be a pain to live with for the humans more than the dog.) If you would like more informations on the steps taken by our small kennel to prevent the disorders that are avoidable in the next generation please feel free to contact us. We believe that if there are tests out there that can make our Goldens live longer healthier lives why not take advantage of it. These test are not cheap, and won't prevent mutation of the disorders from showing up in a new mutation. ex. PRA already has 3 mutations but only two test are available. All our doggy parents have clearances for hips, elbows, eyes and heart. Please be aware that a certain percentage of pups, no matter what breeding, in all breeds, may still have one of these disorders to a certain degree no matter how many generations of hip cleared parents are in the pedigree. Plus environmental factors such as food and weight gain can affect the development of hip and elbow disorders. Pups are born with perfect hips growth is what affects the development. Factors such as jumping, running, slipping and being overweight transforms the hip and elbow joints. Their is no guarantee a dog will not develop hip problems their is only hope they will not develop it.

When you talk genetics with us you will understand that even if the parents are cleared Mother Nature may have other plans. No DNA tests have been developed for cancers, epilepsy, hips, elbows, heart disorders, or the eye disorders such as Pigmentary Uveitis. (A dominant gene so only one parent needs to carry it and it leads to Glaucoma).

Every breed has it's list of problems even mixed breeds like Golden Doodles are not immune from this. If they were we would all turn to mutts. Ex PU is a dominant gene meaning only one parent in this case "The Golden" needs to carry the disorder. I haven't even touched the other dominant disorders Poodles carry. Same goes with cancers.

If a breeder tell you otherwise run. Run away fast! They are dishonest from the get go.

Because of the unpredictable when it comes to genetics, we offer six weeks of free pet insurance and recommend you continue this for the dog's life. And we also offer a three year guarantee if the dog dies before three years of age. Please review details on our site.
