Breeding at ROCKHART Irish Wolfhounds is limited, and I only breed a litter if I plan to keep a puppy for myself. The prerequisite breeding requirements of several European countries are met every time I breed, ensuring the health of my hounds. This means I check my breeding stock for Brucellosis, Thyroid, Dilated Cardiomyopathy, and Atrial Fibrillation (echo, EKG, and cardiac evaluation with a stethoscope to check rhythms weekly) prior to breeding for optimal quality, health, and temperament.ROCKHART Irish Wolfhounds due to health issues in the breed, has tended to breed older females to be sure dam is free of health issues, but this had led to smaller litters.
