Not accurate enough to know for certain if the dog will pass certification as an adult, be breed worthy, etc... But any dysplasia severe enough to have a significant impact on the dog's future quality of life or ability to work is likely to be evidant at 6 months old.

Knowing if there is a problem before you buy the dog makes your decision easier. I personally would not buy a dog if the prelimes showed a problem. Also things can change as they get older even with the prelims showing no problem.

The OFA stats seem promising about it. Even though the breeder has some guarantee about hips there is no way I could give back a pet i've bonded and spent countless hours with.
