Don’t be scared 🙁 anyone can have a dog health checked if you have a pedigree it’s best to get the hips done via the BVA so that there is a record and you get a proper form with a full panel score if you have the eyes done they are best done at a border collie eye testing day as the borders are really good at holding these days they are held all over the country all you need to take is your dogs registeration papers same with the hips

Erm a bit scared to ask but do you have to want to breed your dog to have tests?
Nero is in ringcraft at the mo and I’d like to have his hip score/eye test done when he turns 1yr old (cost irrelevant), just out of curiosity. He’s also endorsed against breeding and export until certain criteria is met 🙂
I feel very sorry for breeders who do all they can to create a good strong bloodline as healthy as possible, endorse the pup then its used for breeding anyway (eg “huskamutes”). Anything for a quick buck >:(
