In the recent past, it proved more and more important to make good decisions by matching the right parents of future litters to maintain or even improve the health of our beloved Rhodesian Ridgebacs by limiting/preventing inbreeding and the passing on of hereditary diseases. Our goal is to assist all breeders to make healthy breeding decisions. Future dog owners can check the background of a puppy they are intending to buy.
The most important part of this database are the (international) health test results collected from breeders, clubs and databases from various countries. This database gives you the possibility to calculate the inbreeding coefficient (COI) of a future litter, to check health-results of your own or other dogs or just to browse through the pedigrees. After you sign up (which is free of charge) you can log in for additional search options on health-issues and you also can make a pedigree analysis.
As a (former) breeder or owner, you can help to complete the pedigrees, add photos and contribute health-information. You can find more details under the tab 'add a dog'. This information is essential for providing the most accurate results concerning inbreeding and health issues.
Feel invited to have a look around.
