How to research breeders and dogs' bloodlines, health testing and performance
This thread for our archives gives resources for folks who want to research a breeder or a particular dog's heritage, in general to determine their suitability as a source for a puppy--information on bloodlines, health and performance.
It does not have specific names of kennels, or good or bad breeders, but merely on-line websites or other places to look for registries or records of the kinds of things someone might want to research--health registries, performance or show records, breeders' output of puppies, bloodline records, etc.
It is a thread we can refer folks to when they come to our forum wanting to know where to go and how to do complete research in order to find a puppy. It is meant to provide information to people new to this process who may not know the wide variety of resources they could and should utilize.
