After getting in touch with all kinds of dog sports it is clear to me that a good, versatile dog needs a lot of qualities to excel in sports like agility, herding, doggy dance… I like my dogs to always be willing to work with a high level of concentration but without being nervous. Titles, won by the parents, will not always be passed through to the pups but I do appreciate some sport results from dogs that are behind the Luna Tale bloodline. For me it’s important that dogs are willing to work in all kinds of circumstances. Besides, the owner of a sporting dog, looking back at the dog’s career, will always have much more to tell about his dog than the owner of a pet dog.
I want perfect health for the Luna Tale dogs. I thoroughly investigate the medical background of the dogs I’m interested in, as well as that of their brothers, sisters and other related dogs. In my opinion not only the hips should be scored for hip dysplasia but also the elbows and shoulders should be tested to see if they are clear of dysplasia signs. Eye affections like CEA, PRA, CL etc… are of course of equal importance.
That’s why all my dogs are DNA tested for CEA/CH & CL and the eyes are tested on a yearly basis for PRA. Also TNS is very important! I do not think it’s sufficient to only test the dogs that are bred from but also their siblings to get more information. You do not get anywhere by holding back information; you do not help your own dogs nor the people who are interested in using dogs from your bloodline to breed with.
