Understanding Certified Registration criteria:

In addition to meeting the Standard Registration requirements There are two options to provide the proof needed to register as Certified:

1. By Testing

  • Genotyped

  • PHA tested

  • Chondro tested


2. By Obligate

  • Genotyped

  • Parent verified to PHA and Chondro tested (or obligate) Sire and Dam

The intent

The intent of the Certified criteria is to encourage genetic testing that will facilitate breeders in making good breeding decisions in order to avoid unexpected complications resulting from unknowingly breeding two PHA positive or Chondro positive animals together.
