Our motivation and projects
We are a group of enthusiasts of the Dutch partridge dog. Our mission is to give this breed a healthy future. Our goal is to create a genetic reference file of at least 50 unique pedigrees as a first step in reducing genetic abnormalities in the Dutch partridge dog. Not excluding but broadening the gene pool is the starting point. We will achieve this by launching an investigation in collaboration with DPCNA (US Dutch Partridge dog association) at PAW Print Genetics, with our beloved dog as the subject of investigation. Therefore, we will approach owners and gather information about participation of their dogs in this study. Contacts with the DPCNA and PAW Print Genetic are promising.
Anyone who is in possession of a Drentsche Partridge Dog, breeds with it, work with it, loves it, clubs, associations in whatever capacity, we want to reach and inspire! Especially owners who are not members of a club and / or association we want to approach in order to gain a file that is as complete as possible.
