Breeding restrictions:

HD: Offspring can only be registered and get a DKK pedigree if both parents – before the breeding – have an official HD- status, registered in DKK (Danish Kennel Klub).

A dog with HD status D or E can be approved for breeding in exceptional cases, if the breeder judges the total contribution of the dog to be of positive value for the Leonberger breed. In that case the mating partner must always have an HD status A or B (free).

ED: Offspring can only be registered and get a DKK pedigree if both parents – before the breeding – have an official AD status registered in DKK (Danish Kennel Klub).

A dog with ED status 3 can in be approved for breeding in exceptional cases, if the breeder judges the total contribution of the dog to be of positive value for the Leonberger breed. The breeding partner must in those cases always have an ED status 0 (free).

If one wishes to breed to a foreign male which is not ED evaluated, the Danish female must always have ED status 0 or 1.

The presence and correct placement of the male’s testicles must be documented in due form.
