All Breeding stock used for breeding before the age of two, must be fully tested. Although OFA will not certify the hips or elbows of any dogs before the age of TWO, our breeders are required to obtain a Prelim from the OFA to show their dogs suitable to be used as breeding stock or have Pennhip certified clearances on the hips.

WE highly Recommend DNA testing for Labs, Labradoodles, Mini and Toy Poodles for the prcd form of PRA. THis doesn’t excuse the CERF testing however and all breeders still must do a yearly CERF on all their breeding dogs.
