About This File

This presentation was given by Katariina Mäki, PhD at the 10th Bernese Mountain Dog International Health Symposium, 8-30-2015.

 

Contents include:
Introduction to EBVs
EBV for longevity: Bernese Mountain Dog data
Some conclusions

 

"Longevity as a trait in breeding is Complicated!
BUT...
With a large amount of data, hopefully some regularities can be found
If they are genetic, breeding for longer lifespan is possible."

 

While the presentation includes data and particulars for Bernese Mountain Dogs, the ideas presented pertaining to the use of EBVs can be applied across all breeds.
