Since Rottweilers are the breed I know, I can tell you what on that list they need to be tested for and how often. I had never heard of Legg-Calve - Perthes before I typed this up last night.

This is why it is so very important to do your research BEFORE you decide on a breed of dog or a breeder.

Also - if your breeder says that his/her dogs have their OFA's a nd CERF's - you CAN check this. You can search either database to find your breeder's dogs. Checking is important as the paperwork can, and has, been forged by people who are, shall we say, less then ethical.
