    Default Cavalier age

    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.

    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.
