Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
The Gordon Setter breeders seem to be working out a sensible strategy, accepting they will have to use carriers in their breeding, otherwise they will lose too much of their gene pool, but by breeding clear to carrier, and testing the progeny,they can gradually reduce the number of carriers, and eliminate affected dogs
They are NOT asking the KC to stop registering the progeny of carriers
The important thing is to test all the dogs so their clear/carrier/affected status is known before making breeding choices
Thank you, Gillian!
