Penn Hip Testing Results for Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dogs - Last Updated 05-27-07

(Click here for OFA Data)

The following results were compiled by Pumpkin Hill Catahoulas.  Penn Hip (University of Pennsylvania Hip Improvement Program) does not have a public database.  As of  January 2007 ,  159 Catahoulas had been evaluated by Penn Hip.  If you would like to have your Penn Hip tested dog included, or provide additional information about dogs listed below, please contact me.  

The results listed below were provided to me by the owners/breeders of the described dogs, and have not been independently verified.  A reputable breeder should be willing to send you a copy of the dog's  Penn Hip certificate.

Penn Hip evaluations consist of a distraction index (DI) for each hip, expressed as a decimal.  The DI is calculated from measurements of the laxicity and distraction of each hip socket.  Penn Hip also tells whether there is any evidence of denerative joint disease (See DJD column in table).   The lower the DI, the better (tighter) the hips are. 

 

Penn Hip certificates also include a "percentile" rating.    As of January 2007, the median DI, and 50th percentile mark is .54, which means that 50% of dogs tested scored better than .54 and 50% tested worse.    Penn Hip recommends that breeding stock be selected from dogs with hip scores that are tighter (lower DI number) than the median, and NO evidence of degenerative joint disease.  Penn Hip further recommends that breeders apply selection pressure towards breeding only dogs whose hips are in the 60th percentile or tighter. In the listing below, I have only included dogs with "passing scores" (above the 50th percentile), consistent with NALC's policy for Hip Certification.

 

Note: The median and percentile ratings statistical values and are not fixed.  They are subject to change  as more Catahoulas are tested.  The breed median and percentile figures are updated by Penn Hip on a quarterly basis.  The percentile figures in the table below represent the dog's percentile ranking at the time they were evaluated as indicated on their Penn Hip certificate. 

 

Listings are sorted by DI score of tightest hip.  To search quickly for a particular dog, Use Ctrl+F
