Default Nbt?

Okay so I can't find the links but I think I remember someone talking about how the NBT in dogs works differently than it does in cats and it does not pose the same risks of spinal defects. Anyone know about this or have a link?

I can't find my links on it right now, but there was a study done among Aussies a few years ago between a number of litters. The conclusion was that doing an NBT/NBT breeding had no detriment on spinal health and was probably a good way to start going in order to keep the "look" of the Aussie even in the even that docking was outlawed in the US.
