Estimated Breeding Values

Estimated Breeding Values (EBVs) are a tool that can help breeders make breeding choices based on indicators of the genetic risk of complex inherited disease, which is more accurate than by using an individual dog’s test score alone. EBV calculations use all hip and elbow screening data and pedigree information from the individual dog and its surrounding family, to more effectively determine the genetic risk that each dog will pass this disease to its progeny.

YOUR HELP IS NEEDED:

An EBV can only be calculated for a breed if enough individual dogs across the breed have been scored. EBVs will be  recalculated quarterly. The more dogs with hip and elbow scores in the database the more accurate the EBV. Please add your dogs Hip and Elbow information to the database by using the form below.

Thank you for adding your Hip and Elbow data for the calulation of Estimated Breeding Values. 

EBVs will be recalculated on a quarterly basis your data will be used in the next calculation which is planned for the 1st September 2019.

For any questions about the research, please contact Carla O'Donnell at  

 
Once again, Thank You


Sincerely,
