Dear IFR-Delegates, Rottweiler Friends,
We hereby send out a third questionnaire, this time with questions about the way (methods) the Rottweiler is tested on hipdysplasia (HD) in your country and how cynology and in particular your Rottweilerclub (wants to) act(s) on it.
We know that prior testing of breeding dogs and excluding affected dogs has prevented a lot of suffering and in general decreased the genetic affection of our beloved breed. Still, it is not a final solution and did not remove the disease from the breed.
We know indeed that hipdysplasia is a polygene and multifactorial genetic disease.
