Inbreeding co-efficient 0,5% – 5 gen. (6,56% – 8 gen.)
Our breeding policies:
The bitches used for breeding in this kennel are always x-rayed and free on both hips and elbows (as a dog has 4 legs!). They are also of good health and breed type with sound construction and great mentality. The inbreeding coefficient is kept well below 6,25% according to the Swedish Kennel Club’s recommendations (RAS = Breed Specific Strategies). Lately, we have started doing DNA testing for CEA as well, as it has been discovered in the breed.
The bitches are never used for breeding before the age of 2. They’re mated at no older than the age of 4 for their first litter and no later than 7-7½ years in a bitch with previous litters. They give birth to between 0 and 4 litters depending on litter size and the evaluation of the previous puppies.
The dogs all live indoors with access to all rooms in the house, at almost all times. The puppies are raised inside the house, and it’s only the puppy room that’s off limits for the other dogs until the puppies are 3 weeks old. We do not allow visitors during the first 3 to 4 weeks after the puppies have been born as the bitch needs to have peace and quiet with her little ones.
Puppies are dewormed 2 – 3 times before delivery and are delivered at a minimum 8 weeks of age; vaccinated and accompanied with registration papers, a health certificate, their own puppy book and a bag of “little goodies”. They are also chipped and insured! A 1 year membership in the Swedish Bearded Collie Club is included for puppy buyers living in any of the Nordic countries.
