BlackMalinois - do prospective clients of the two other working shepherd breeds in your sphere normally request the extensive health testing and documentation as they might had they been interested in a GS instead?

Some people do more investigation than others and some breeders too most people only check the hips,elbows and back, and some do also eyes ,teeth and other parts

Of course. I'm thinking the GS gets more scrutiny in terms of health history than the Mal or Dutch. Maybe for good reason..

The GSD have more health problems than the other 2, and I can,t say that all GSD breeders are so
accurate in . But every breed have their problems some have more than the other .

Have owned 21 X malinois never have any problems with them , have owned 4 FCI- GSD and 2 of them problems with hips and ellbows .

We recently had 2 pups diagnosed with elbow problems,

One was a male pup that had Ununited ancorneal process (UAP) and the other was a female from a different litter.

The male had the grandmother of the female for his mom, so now I'm tweaking our breeding program, our dogs are closely linebred, we go out and then come back in.

When you go out and use unrelated studs, you get some more new faults along with the good attributes 😉🐕

You can have a stud with the excellent hips and crappy elbows, I'm staying clear of that stud, so down the line I'll have clear elbows happening, it's all about doing right by the breed, clear to clear, after all, they walk on all fours 🐕😉

So that bring me to a question how many generations in a pedigree do you look at? I have been told third by many but I personally want to see 5 back.

And update. I was not booted for bringing up hips on the forum per say.....found out the the owner of the forum had many hip problems with her breeding stock and wanted to avoid her past problems.
