To be considered for breeding our dogs must hold hip and elbow certification, have a current AVCO exam (new DNA testing makes it possible that a dog may be of known status and safely bred whilst not being able to CERF ) and preferrably a performance title (hunting/obedience).

We were 10 years in the breed and had 5 candidates, 4 of whom failed one or more of our considerations, before finally having a dog "good enough" to breed. All were carefully bred dogs from very nice litters with conscientious breeders and are living proof that even when you do all the proper things...things ~can~ go wrong...
Health and performance certification is something that should be done with EVERY breeding candidate to keep the occurances as low as possible.

We learned quite a bit during that time; Finished numerous hunting titles, obedience titles and International Championships. Though they were not destined to be breeding dogs each of our early candidates were, and are, excellent pets, family companions and hunting dogs.
Thumper spent his life here with us, we lost him unexpectedly on June 9, 2002 to suspected bladder/prostate cancer.
Anka and Kyzyl were placed into pet homes upon failing certification.
Bee was placed in a pet home as though lovely and fully certified her work ethic was found wanting.

In Dancer we finally had a complete package, brains, beauty, work ethic and sound structure. She attained her Conformation and Working Certificates (LRC, CC & WC), her Companion Dog and Junior Hunter (AKC, CD & JH) titles, her Rally Novice, Advanced and Excellent titles and 3 passes towards her Companion Dog Excellent (AKC, CDX) title prior to retirement in 2009 where she is now working on her "Queen of the Couch" title.

Cai is our Dancer son. He completed his Rally Novice title as an 11 month old, Took the first pass on his CD as a 9 month old, and before turning two had also completed his RA & RE titles. Lifes turns and the 2008-? economic meltdown have kept us out of the ring for awhile but hopefully we'll get back on track working towards SH/CDX in 2010.
