What was meant by health checks, are not simple vet checks and are not something you can say your dog is. It's genetic tests that are being asked about, and tests for HD and ED.

Do you know what NCL is? Cause it is something very much common in various lines of AB, that and ichthyosis. There are DNA tests for both, or at least NCL. Even if your dog isn't expressing the genes, she and the stud dog could both be carriers which means you will be producing at least some effected puppies.

Did the stud dog have any of these?

And that is just the bare minimum.

As for the nipples, sounds normal, but I would be checking them daily for as stated above mastitis. Some nipples get bigger than others, they just do.
