ResearchBreeder.com Genetic Tests - English Cocker Spaniel

Most national breed clubs have created a list of recommended genetic tests and health screenings forCertifideBreeder300 dogs used in the breeding process. Breeders completing these recommended tests may apply for a special designation for the dog providing the dog has a permanent tattoo or microchip, all recommended tests have been completed, the taking of the tests are recorded in a publicly available database, and specific tests requiring dogs to be retested on a chronological bases have been completed.  The Canine Health Information Center or "CHIC" designation is also associated with the American Kennel Club or "AKC".  Please note the passing of any tests is not a requirement prior to being used in the breeding process. ResearchBreeder.com supports the CHIC program and encourages breeders to participate.

The tests and screenings listed below represent those required to meet CHIC qualification.   ResearchBreeder.com has created a separate designation for those breeders agreeing to follow CHIC guidelines and to only use dogs in the breeding process which have received passing results for the tests prior to being used in the breeding process.  Breeders meeting this requirement receive the ResearchBreeder.com Certification and are awarded the  "Certified Breeder" designation.  This designation is not a guarantee dog buyers of a healthy puppy but it DOES indicate the breeder has received the highest designation achievable in the industry.
