Risk analysis is a mathematical computation of the percentage of the cumulative contribution of ancestors in a particular disease process. Verified information regarding affecteds and producers of the diseases is entered into the database.
The computer program then calculates the risk value of a disease for a particular dog or for a prospective mating.
The computations are only as good as the amount of information in the database because the risk values are the product of known & verified affecteds or producers. The more complete the data; the better the analysis.

Risk analysis is now computed for seizures, PCD and PRA. Also included are results of testings for Hips, Elbows, Eyes and Hearts, where published records are available or where owners can provide private test results.
The person requesting a risk analysis must be the breeder and/ or owner of at least one of the IWs in the prospective mating. Where possible, all owners will be sent the results of the analysis.
The names of owner, breeder or dog are not mentioned unless permission is received in writing to share information.
