I have a question I hope someone can answer. During my search for a pup I have looked at the pedigrees of both the parents. If the breeders are all trying to stop Hip Dysplasia/ elbow problems. Why do they breed dogs with a rating of A2 or A3 for hips in the pedigree?
If these rating are not good and indicate the hips are not very good why are they breeding them even if the other dog offsets that fault. Isn't there a higher risk for that problem in some unfortunate dog to show up? I am trying to understand why they would risk it? A1 is the highest so why don't they breed with that as a requirement along with temperament etc.? Even SV dogs bred the German show/working lines way.
Dogs that supposedly have passed a Kormeiser inspection have several dogs withA2 A3 rating Why is that?

This is an old thread. It would be better to start a thread in the breeder or health section, with this question, but not aimed at any specific breeder.
