Licensed breeders are expected to strive to maintain the unique qualities of the breed. Conformation, disposition, and soundness are important to maintain quality within the breed. All licensed breeders must be diligent in watching for defects that are suspected of having a genetic link. These defects may be passed on to future offspring. Examples of these defects include parrot mouth, crypt orchid and clubfoot.
