Raising The Standard Through Love, Confirmation, DNA, & Healthy Breeding Practices
Adults Diamond Ratings
Each adult may receive up to 5 purple diamonds, one each for meeting the following requirements.
The Purple Diamond Rating is designed to assist the clients we work with to receive the absolute best puppy to meet their needs. We also want to be a leader and advocate for healthy breeding practices. No matter if the adult is a 1 to 5 diamond raking we have ensured the adult is healthy and will parent a strong healthy puppy backed by our two-year genetic health guarantee.
The dog must be registered and in good standing with the American Kennel Club.
The dog must be tested genetically clear for DM(SOD1) and Von Willebrand(vWD). Some adults may be tested but may have one or two copies of the trait and therefore not receive a diamond. When breeding we make sure there is a maximum chance of a single genetic trait being passed down to the puppy. Only double carriers have the chance of developing future health issues.
To receive this diamond a dog must have passing grades on either OFA or PennHIP. An adult must be a minimum of two years of age for OFA testing and one year for PennHip. Females may not be tested after they are bread until the litter's weaning is completed.
This diamond is reserved for adults that have breed show champions or high-quality imported bloodlines in their pedigree within the adult's past generations. Choosing a puppy from an adult with this diamond may be for those looking to participate in breeding, show, therapy, or advanced training.
The Good Citizen diamond is the newest addition to our rating system. It is reserved for an adult that completes and receives the AKC Good Citizen Certification for passing a 10 skill test. Currently, we do not have any adults with this distinction but our goal is to have an AKC CGC judge scheduled for testing by the end of 2023.
