"The Canine Health Center( Canine Health Foundation, AKC) was established by the CHF [Canine Health Foundation] and the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals. CHIC is an online registry that works with the breed parent clubs to establish a panel of testable genetic disorders that should be screened for in each breed... dogs achieve CHIC certification by completing the health-checks" (Bell, Jerold S.
