Hiya I think most people on here know that I am planning to breed fully health tested cavaliers in the future. I plan to get a foundation bitch that has show potential and from a showing background with at least a champion in the first few generations, maybe even one of the parents. I am hoping to get a cavalier that has fully health tested parents, so on some tests, she'll be clear by parentage. But my questions are these: 1. What do you do if she comes up with an affected result from a test or she has high hip scores for example? Would I have to spay her and then get and run another foundation bitch on to see if she has clear results? 2. Should I get two foundation bitches and run them both together, so I get more chance of at least one getting fully clear health tests and being allowed to breed? I would have to run them on until they are at least 2.5 years old for full health tests, so if she fails at that age, I've effectively wasted 2.5 years to show her successfully for her not to be my foundation bitch. Would I have to wait another 2.5 years with another foundation bitch to be able to start my breeding line?
