Some about Health : As Tamaskans as a race were created relatively recently, it is very important to run the breeding with great care for the health of dogs.
All dog breeding farms belonging to the TDR/ITR are required to perform appropriate check-ups on the bred dogs, and since Tamaskans are still evolving, more research is done than in other breeds. Every dog bred MUST have the following: eyes examined, x-rays for hip and elbow dysplasia, genetic checkup testing confirming its parents (in the Neogen Geneseek database) and a test against any genetic diseases (in the MyDogDNA or Embark databases).
Each breed of dog has is susceptible to various diseases. However, responsible breeding can eliminate most of them, and significantly reduce risk of developing others. This is why it is important to carefully check what tests were made to the parents of the litter we would like a puppy from, and if that breeding belongs to the TDR (The Tamaskan Dog Register)or ITR ( International Tamaskan Register), which controls it and allows only the tested dogs in the breeding. Currently it is assumed that Tamaskans are prone to hip dysplasia, degenerative myelopathy, cryptorchidism of the hip joints, epilepsy, Addison’s disease, cataracts, digestive problems/food allergies.
