Samenvatting: 

In light of improving breeding advice, the frequency was estimated for all the disease-causingmutations that were known at the start of the study and that are potentially relevant for a groupof dog breeds, which are relatively popular or in which the genetic diversity in Belgium is lowto moderately low. In this study, the results for the German shepherd dog, Malinois, Lakenois,Groenendael, Tervuren, Australian shepherd and Border collie are presented. Disorders with afrequency high enough to warrant routine genotyping for breeding programs are (1) multidrugresistance 1 and hereditary cataract for the Australian shepherd, (2) degenerative myelopathyfor the German shepherd dog, Malinois and Groenendael and (3) collie eye anomaly for theBorder collie. In addition, the hyperuricosuria mutation described in the German shepherd dogwas not found in its Belgian population, but was, to the authors’ knowledge discovered for thefirst time in the Malinois.
