USE OF OUR SERVICES

With this website, Dogs Global provides its users with a platform for the recall of information about available dog breeds. The goal of Dogs Global is to provide the user with as comprehensive an overview as possible of his/her own animal and its ancestors and other properties concerning breeding of dogs. It is Dogs Global’s aim to give breeders the guidance to plan future litters and generations in a way that the breed retains its health and genetic diversity. In no circumstances we can garantee that animals will not inherit or display (genetic) diseases. Dogs Global strives to reduce the risk of disease in populations. It is important to realise that even when all measure are taken, an animal can develop a genetic disease. It is also important to realise that this risk can differ strongly per (sub-)population.
