Litters and Planned Breedings
A lot of thought, careful planning, and intense research goes into each breeding here at Cresthill. We do everything possible to ensure that our litters will produce puppies that are genetically sound. All dogs in our breeding program have OFA Good or Excellent Hips, OFA Normal Elbows, OFA Advanced Cardiac Clear and OFA Eye certified annually. Cresthill is one of the very few breeding kennels in the country that submits their breeding dogs to DNA testing for PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy), RD/OSD (Retinal Dysplasia/OculoSketetal Dysplasia), CNM (Labrador Centronuclear Myopathy), EIC (Exercise Induced Collapse), HNPK (Hereditary Nasal Parakeratosis), DM (Degenerative Myelopathy) and SD (Skeletal Dysplasia 2). We unconditionally guarantee that our puppies will not be AFFECTED by any of the genetic disorders that we test for. Our goal is to produce healthy, genetically sound puppies while still preserving the breed's natural hunting abilities, instincts, trainability and temperament.
We take great pride in breeding high quality puppies. All puppies born at Cresthill Kennels are born in our home and raised in our state of the art kennel. They are given individual care, love, and attention. Daily contact and stimulation is important to the neurological development of young puppies, therefore, each one is handled and socialized extensively. When the puppies are ready to go home at seven weeks of age, new owners will find that dew claws have been removed, a health check has been given by my vet, and shots and wormings are up to date and in order. Puppies will have been introduced to birds and water (weather permitting) and accustomed to loud noises. We stand behind our puppies with a written 5 Year Guarantee on hips, elbows and eyes. We unconditionally guarantee our puppies not to be affected by any of the genetical disorders that we DNA test for. If you would like to see a copy of our guarantee please send a TEXT ONLY (No Phone Calls) to (540) 419-7483.
