Even though the requirements are stated right under the link to this forum, obviously people are either not reading them or ignoring them.
In order to post a litter or individual dogs here, both parents must have hip certification. You also need to include 2 generations of pedigree. Note that if you have a web site with the required information you can simply post a link.
This isn't an issue up for discussion. I've heard from some that hip certification doesn't guarantee good hips, and I've also heard from some that say I should require more health checks. I'm not trying to dictate what you as a breeder must do, but I am going to dictate minimum requirements for posting here.
I also strongly encourage anyone looking for a pup to ask what health checks have been done. Everyone says their pups are healthy, ask the seller how they know. They also say they are great hunters, and most ads talk about dual quality or dual potential. Sounds great in an ad, but again, buyer beware. When you look at the pedigree of these potential hall of fame dogs, keep in mind that dogs 4 generations back contribute only 6.25% each, 5th generation only 3.125% each to your dog, so if the claim to fame is a couple generations back ask them why they think the pups have such great potential.
I'm not saying there aren't good litters out there that don't have health tests or champions in the 1st generation. What I am saying is that as a buyer, you should make sure you are getting the best pup you can.
Bottom line is, if you post a litter here without the required information, I won't simply delete the post. I will reply to your ad to point out the potential problems in purchasing untested dogs, along with making the point that if the breeder can't even read and follow posting requirements here, do you really want to buy a dog from them?
