We feel strongly that the biggest improvement in Springers will come only when we have an open registry and free exchange of information. Dr. Padgett says that EVERY DOG carries at least four genetic faults. Being forthcoming about your Springer will help the breed as a whole.
If YOU feel the same, do your part. Cerf your dog's eyes, X-ray your dog's hips and elbows, and register them both. Check the OFA box that says you'll allow them to publish the information whether your dog's hips pass or not. (That information is printed in RED on the OFA site.) Check for PFK and Fucosidosis. You can now send in your Springer's blood and check for PRA.
Breed only dogs that have phenotypically clear eyes and normal hips and elbows, as well as excellent temperament and conformation. Follow the ESSFTA's guidelines for responsible breeders, whether you're a member or not.
You may download or search the database
in its various forms for your own personal use, including the generation
of pedigrees for distribution for dogs you own, breed or sell. Otherwise,
you may not redistribute this database for charge as it is or incorporated
into a larger database, without written permission, which may easily be
obtained in most circumstances. Although the individual pedigree entries
