The Definitive Resource for Canine Genetic Health™

Providing the highest standards in testing and customer service

Peace of mind for the future health of your new family member.
All of this information is available of the Paw Prints website. If you follow the link below you can see the testing we have selected for our breeding programme.

At Wagon Tails, our dogs were purchased ONLY after passing the most comprehensive genetic tests currently available - and passing, FULLY CLEAR of any potential health or genetic abnormalities.  Its an expensive process, but we feel it is essential for all breeders to commit to this type of screening.
