Quality through generations
Vital information for potential
1. Genetics~which is why we test and research pedigrees/kennels
2. Diet~high quality kibble,(Smack, Acana, First Mate or Carna4 are our top choices), healthy balanced diet. Video to watch and another video . OF course raw is an option however it must be done with knowledge/assistance of a balanced informed trainer's advice.
3. Over feeding-better to keep them more on the lean side.
4. Too much exercise at a young age. This is your responsibility to restrict exercise. (Until at least 12 months)
It is felt that genetics play between a 25-30% role in a dog getting hip dysplasia. That means that new pet owners can assume a great deal of responsibility in their dog developing good hips and elbows. This begins with feeding an all-natural completely balanced diet-raw meat-ONLY if you have researched and received assistance from a knowlegable individual , or a dog food that is made up of all human grade ingredients(high quality ingredient kibble). It also means that you should keep your dog from becoming over weight. Carrying too much extra weight at a young age is going to add stress on soft puppy bones and will have an effect on skeletal development of your dog. New owners need to be very careful of not over exercising a young pup. This means no jogging or running beside a bike until the dog is 12 months of age. This means not exercising to the point of exhaustion, or taking the pup for long long walks/runs, or allowing the pup to jump off a deck or out of the back of a half-ton or on/off couches, beds etc.
