Do these dogs (Schapendoes breed) have any health issues?

All dogs, no matter if they are purebred or not, can have the potential for genetic health issues. However, the Schapendoes breed is not known for a lot of genetic health problems. Breeders have been striving since the be working hard since the creation of this breed to continue its health and longevity. The only known health issues pertaining to the breed is Progressive retinal atrophy (PRA), and breeders in the U.S.A. and Canada are also screening their dogs for hip dysplasia only as a preemptive strike against the disease. PRA can be tested in adult dogs before they are bred as it is a genetic disease. Both the dam and sire need to have the gene for PRA for it to affect a puppy. But if only one dog has PRA, it can be passed genetically to a puppy, but not affect the actual dog.

Anonymous asked:
Are Schapendoes extremely active? Would a 1-1/2 hour daily walk up and down hills in a state park suffice along with a fenced-in backyard of approximately 3/4 acre? Or is more exercise necessary in order to live "orderly" with this breed?



Although Schapendoes are a herding breed and do enjoy having something to do, what you describe should be more than enough to keep the dog happy. I usually suggest at least 1 hour of energetic activity - ie playing ball, playing with other dogs, hiking; especially for younger dogs. These dogs tend to be active when you are but quite happy to hang out and be coach potatoes when things are quiet.


I had a Schapendoes and she just loved chasing and retrieving a ball,. It was a great way to exercise her.
