Dogs included in the database have been submitted by their owners and/or breeders (or identified through other online sources such as the Finnish Database). Just because a particular kennel or line is not represented does not mean that OCD is not in that line. Conversely, just because a dog is listed in this database does not mean it has a genetic form of OCD. This database is an attempt to openly share information about OCD in the border collie. There is a risk of producing OCD in any breeding.
