Requiring us to OFA our dogs is only smart.


At one time the AKC would not require this in order to breed a  dog.  I know 
the Lionburgers were not AKC recognized as they did require  this in order to 
breed their animals. I don't know if they dropped it, or the  AKC changed 
their position.
 
I would be against this. I remember a dog named Houston.  We would  have lost 
him to the breed, had this been required.  It should be up to the  breeders 
who and how to breed better animals. When you start to limit the gene  pool 
with restrictions, you are just saying that those doing the work don't know  
what 
they are doing, and need to be led by the nose.
 
If only OFA dogs were bred, we would still have hip problems.  More  laws 
don't stop problems, they just make them easier to punish.  It always  sounds 
great to make a law or demand ethics.  It hasn't worked throughout  history, 
and 
it won't work now.
 
Honesty, ethics, intelligence, and fairness are personal traits best left  up 
to those called on to show them.  How they respond will reflect on their  
success.
