International Directory for Australian Shepherd Health (IDASH)
ASHGI established IDASH to provide breeders and owners with specific pedigree-based health information and to enable breeders to make more informed breeding decisions as regards health and unwanted inherited traits in the Australian Shepherd. It offers two basic services:
IDASH Open Health Database – This searchable database provides public domain and owner-submitted health and trait data. Owner-submitted items are supported with documentation. If you are interested in reading more about the data qualification process click “Rules & Criteria” in the menu at left.
IDASH Pedigree Analysis Service – This program, originally developed by C.A. Sharp for Collie Eye Anomaly only, has grown over the years to include a variety of health issues and inherited faults. It became an ASHGI program in 2008. For a $20 fee we will provide dog owners with a certificate advising them of potential genetic risk for each of the traits tracked. Pedigree Analysis FAQs
