Understanding Hip Ratings

 

With the advent of worldwide import and export of show, breeding and companion dogs, we encourage Berner breeders and pet buyers to develop a basic understanding of how different countries and registry's hip ratings evaluation systems work.
PUPPY BUYER'S NOTE: To minimize the chances of having to cope with the heartache, expense and management of a dysplastic BMD, before importing a Berner, please visit the Berner-Garde database <www.bernergarde.org> for specific information on hip results for families of dogs and individual Bernese Mountain Dogs.
This chart is designed to enhance knowledge of systems for rating Bernese Mountain Dog hips. The chart is meant to be a relative guideline for roughly estimating equivalent hip ratings between various evaluation systems.
The hip registry information on this page was compiled by Pat Long.
Please contact Pat <pat@bmdinfo.com> for additional information, or to comment.
Please be advised...ratings of identical radiographs in different systems and/or by different evaluators may not receive the equivalent ratings.
