Breeder Of Merit web OES

Last Updated October 9, 2019

A word about health testing. At SnowDowne, we are leaders in health testing of Old English Sheepdogs. All of the dogs that we own that we are currently using for breeding undergo 10 health tests. These include Hips, Eyes, Hearing, Thyroid, Heart, Cerebellar Ataxia (CA), Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia (PCD), Multi Drug Resistance 1 (MDR1), Exercise Induced Collapse (EIC) and Degenerative Myelopathy.

We are not God and can not promise that every OES will never have a health issue (no one can!), but we can stack the odds in our favor by doing all the health testing we do. Our goal is to breed healthy OES with family friendly temperaments, and proper OES conformation.
