The GERMAN WIREHAIR ALLIANCE plans to achieve these objectives through a series of strict breeding requirements that include:
Field Testing for Hunting Aptitude and Performance
Evaluation of Coat, Structure, and Conformation Quality
Evaluation of Temperament
Mandatory Testing for Hip Dysplasia
Mandatory Testing for Common Genetic Disorders
The Use of a Performance and Pedigree Database to Help Select the Best Matings
Collaboration Between Alliance Breeders on Important Performance and Health Information
