    I think the idea of the testing is fantastic. And this particular test is great.
    Are there any other tests being given...or under consideration?
    Genetic testing perhaps?
    Do they look for bad hips, elbows?

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    This walk test is the only one that is mandatory at the moment, but I have also x-rayed bones, tested eyes, heart, knees and DNA with HUU and Cystinuria. DNA test came also with colour, no undesired colours. They have no allergies.

    That’s as good as anyone could expect from a top notch breeder. Thank you for setting the bar high.
    Back to the breathing test...what happens if someone fails the test and breeds anyway. Are there any repercussions, penalties with “teeth”?

    Those puppies can be registered only in to "Not for breeding" registery, if they try to register them at all.

    Do you know if they check if the dog has gone through brachycephalic surgery before they do the walk test? Although such surgery would mask inherited breathing problems, the problems would still be passed on to future generations. When we bought Castor, the breeder said the parents had no breathing problems, but who knows if they had gone through surgery.

    And bulldogs that have gone through brachycephalic surgery can participate in dog shows, can they not?

    No, it is not checked. Not before the test or for shows. Operated dogs are not allowed to attend shows or take the walk test, but it is not verified in any way. Unfortunately even with mating two dogs without health issues it is not guaranteed 100% that their offspring will not develope any. No one can ever guarantee that, not with any breed.

    Good that operated dogs are not allowed to attend shows (although it cannot be verified)!

    This is wonderful news!! What a fantastic bully mom you must be

    Do they have these same types of test in the states ? It may be strict but from the sounds of it they are ensuring healthy breeding and I am all for that!
    Sure would be nice to get one of your beautiful future pups. I'm thinking it might be a long journey though

    Kylli and Tasto sure are gorgeous!!

    Thank you for your kind words. Bulldogs are my life.

    Nothing in the states is mandatory, but when looking for a puppy you should look for the breeders that have had their bulldogs health tested. In the states there is a BCA Ambassador for Health program. You can find more information on the Bulldog Club of America's web page.
