Due Diligence with hips and titles
by Gusmanda on 22 January 2012 - 03:10
|How easy is it to do due-diligence concerning titles and hips when buying abroad? I'm hearing horror stories on false titles and hip-grades. Does breed federations in Germany/Slovakia/Czech Republic have their files online? Can the average buyer research parents/grandparents of a puppy and find out the official titles/hip-grades?|

|Slovak kennel club has dog info on line.|
German dogs can be checked - and they also have the ZW ratings
Czech dogs are a bit more difficult, but an email can be sent to their kennel club and ask.
Google is excellent in checking these....just type in the dog's name and check breeding records or breed survey lists...
But you have to become familiar with other languages..
