Sounds like a real piece of work. Good luck with your bitch and I hope this does not cause her too much pain and suffering. So sorry for her.

Environmental issues definitely contribute to HD, but to remotely think there isn’t an inheritable component flies in the face of countless examples.

Kudos to the OP for standing up to that poor excuse for a breeder Bob. Glad to hear he is banned.

Ofcourse there is a gentetic aspect to hd....but not exclusively. Still no one has come up with a good answer as to why sound hips for generations both parents still produce hd...environment.
The guy, fox, sounds like a car salesman before lemon laws.

As far as HD I like this definition by Fred Lanting: HD is a polygenetic problem with an irregular pattern, which is genetically predisposed and environmentally induced" Thus regardless of the environment sans injury if the dog develops HD it is of the genetic origin.

One bitch, each litter: first scored at 60 (29:31); second at 84.
All others in litters (both comprised of eight pups) HD cleared, generally very low scoring / below Breed Average.
