Clearances and a pet Golden
Seamus is a pet - not a show dog. We got him before I was on GRF and learned about clearances, etc. His breeder has been less than helpful as far as getting us the registered names of his parents so I have no clue whether they had their clearances or not.
My questions is this - Should I have him checked - eyes, heart, hips, elbows - to ensure that he has no problems?
I only ever hear of dogs getting clearances if they are going to be bred. Is it something useful for a pet dog?
Thanks for all your help!
