Morning all, I have a weird question, can a reputable breeder list wrong the date that the puppy/puppies were born on? Thanks.

In my opinion, if a breeder can not list the correct date of when the puppies were born, the breeder does not appear to be reputable. If it happens to be a typo, after it is brought to their attention it should be corrected and if not...not a reputable breeder.

I do know that on some occasions UK breeders will adjust the date of birth. This is done if the breeder is keeping a puppy to show and the litter was born too late to qualify for entry to a favourite show or under a favourite judge. Registering the puppies as a week or so older than they really are can sort that problem.
Cavaliers......Faith, The Ginger Tank and Woody.
Japanese Chins.... Dandy, Benny, Bridgette and Hana.
Remembered with love......... Tommy Tuppence and Fonzi

Registering puppies to favour a show schedule is something that never occurred to me.
When I used to show my dogs, not Cavs, one puppy I showed against looked very mature compared to the others so maybe .......... One never knows.

One other question, can you do bone age testing to find the age of a dog(or any animal), that is, if you don't know or it was miscalculated? Thanks.
