    Are you sure. Someone just came out their Chesapeake was carrier and had DM.

    I just got the DM results back from Lulu and she came back carrier. There was a letter in with the results saying how at risk, carrier, and normal have all got DM. I found that interesting.

    Also talk with the breeders that have been breeding the type of dog you're looking for, for a very long time. They can offer you a wealth of insight. Just make sure you have a cold one next to you when you're making those calls. You'll be on the phone a while.

    Very well said Sharon!

    FOR THE OP: My friend Sharon Collins just got the DM results back on her boy. CLEAR. I believe she said he made the "Top HRC STud Dog List" this past year. He just passed away at 14 years of age. I trained a couple of his pups and they were very very nice dogs. Rocky had both his MH and HRCH titles.

    FYI, there is frozen semen available.

    I got DM results back a couple of weeks ago and no such letter was sent to me. I'd be interested to read it.
