The type of inheritance is not yet known. Most of researchers think it is multi factorial. And in all kind of research labs (of uni's and commercial)all over the world, they are still doing research for DM.

Al lot of specialist advises not to over react and not to exclude all carriers, but make crossings with Free dogs.

It depends of the gene pool (genetic diversity) of a breed how many years it will cost to reduce a genetic problem in a breed. And also how breed clubs and breeders can cooperate to reduce a problem in future.
Because you will have to work together to keep the genetic diversity also in future as large as possible! And it will cost years to reduce a problem.

It is of not any use to exclude carriers on this moment, especial because the type of inheritance is not known!
When we would exclude N/DM dogs for breeding the genetic diversity would become very small and more new genetic problems will appear
!


So don't make a very big issue of DM, but test as much as possible and register how it is spread in the breed. And don't only use combinations Free x Free!!! Because that will also destroy a breed in time.

For example in Irish setter breed they did make a special program of registering CLAD (carrier x carrier was discouraged but carrier x Free was permitted and all litters had to be tested en registered for years ) and during a lot of years they did reduce the problem but did keep the genetic diversity.

DM is not the only problem in our breed! There are more factors you have to care of in breeding. And don't only look at test results or splendid exterior.. but also take care for a wide gene pool!

I was at a lecture of prof. Peelman (genetic specialist) and for example he did tell the audience: in all breeds where are a lot of the same ancestors, in future more gene mutations will appear.
On this moment 500 gene mutations in dog breeds are known and documented. And only of about 300 the type of inheritance is yet known. And just like all other specialists he did advice: The most important thing to keep in mind is: take care for as much as possible genetic diversity in a breed!

Absolutely! As always, it's very nice to see openness from a breeder in sharing ALL health results publically, especially for an older dog who has had such a big modern influence in our breed. It means a lot - thank you!!! Big hugs to our Finnish pack!

Yes, it is good to see the openness that kennels are having with this and we should see if the affected dogs do develop symptoms and when.

Some studies here believe that diet has a lot to do with it - GSDs that had diets that consisted of foods that had fats listed in the first 4 ingredients had a much higher chance of developing symptoms.

I also agree with Mijke - while DM isn't the best thing to have in your lines it is extremely easily managed and can be bred out of lines in as little as two generations. The concentration should be more on important issues like hips, elbows, and eyes as well as keeping an eye out for other possible factors.

Really - this is great when people do not hide the results that may seem "not so nice". It is a pitty many still think it is some kind of shame or what We should maybe talk more about it - that DM/DM does not mean any tragedy

Yes. This is not a big tragedy. In this moment puppies whit Baron all is only Carrier.

I´m waiting for a more older dogs have DM results and breeders who have many litters in year make tests very soon.

Hanka, now a serious question - do you know PERSONALLY at least ONE Wolfdog who has any VISIBLE problems with DM?

I know some Wolfdogs which are moving really horrible but they are N/N....
