We are delighted to announce that ABCA's Health and Education Foundation (HEF) is generously sponsoring a BAER and DNA collection clinic at the 2018 National Sheepdog Finals in Alturas, California. The clinic will be conducted by Dr. Colette Williams, one of the premier BAER testers in the United States. It will be held on-site on Tuesday, September 25 and Wednesday, September 26.
As Dr. Williams has tested dogs in recent Finals, Meeker, and other venues, we are particularly interested in dogs whose results were suspect previously, and in dogs aged 8 or older with NO apparent hearing difficulties. All ABCA-registered dogs will be tested at no cost whether or not they are entered in the Finals.
Please contact Amy Coapman directly if you have dogs you'd like tested. We will not be scheduling appointments but it's good to know in advance what to expect, and I can email you any necessary paperwork. We will try to minimize the paperwork for those who are re-testing, but Dr. Williams will appreciate any updates that may be pertinent since a dog's last exam.
