The breeding of purebred dogs today has become quite complex as well as in several breeds of dogs there are lots of different breeding lines that produce different kind and traits of dogs within precisely the exact same breed of dog. This has come about because of breeders personel likes and dislikes of a certain kinds, sizes or colours but every breeder of purebred dogs wants to remember that breed of dog breed standard. Does your dog have its own true strain characteristics? Does your dog appear to look like exactly what its breed books say it should look like? Does it compare to image of of dogs of its breed of old or of famous dogs bred in its own breed? Finally does it possess the true character for the breed you have? Last but not least is your dog of sound healthy breeding lines?

These are all question any breeder or any 1 considering breeding dog should ask himself before they undertake the job of breeding any litter of dogs in almost any breed of dog. If you are able to answer all the questions above and you have done at leat some research in your breed of dog and the bloodlines you are working with and also do know what traits your bloodline has, exactly what the sire and dam look like, the grandsire and granddam and further back good sires and dams on your dogs pedigree. The next thing on your head should be what are you attempting to enhance and exactly what exactly are you trying to keep on your breed of puppy.

There are 3 primary breeding methods of breeding dogs or purebreds, line breeding, out crossing and inbreeding. There are many very good books out there on breeding of dogs and I am not trying to rewirte some of them within this writing, rather I am trying to get you as a breeder of puppies to think, read and queries what you doing and put on you going with your breeding program. I will discuss soon the 3 ways of breeding purebred dogs concerning only lay fourth a guide to breeding better dogs and keeping some kind of continuous format to make dogs which closely look like each other, possess the very same traits, temperments and are solid healthy dogs. Lets us simply discuss them shortly and see whether I can get you thinking and taking a look at the way you are breeding your own dogs.

Lets speak out cross breeding - This type of breeding is seen a lot in dog breeding were not one associated dogs who are consumed out none associated inventory are bred together and on your puppies pedigree. This sort of breeding won't produce good dogs of the same type, quality and soundness. Breeding dogs such a way only contributes to many uncertain factors and can bring in several things a breeder is unaware of or perhaps allow it to be impossiable to pin stage were a trait or problem have come from. Out cross breedings should be accomplished by experienced breeders only seeking to fix a mistake or create a certain improvement in there puppies and than the breeder has to be certain the dog or bitch they are using carries this trait themself and the line they have been bred down from does take this attribute or advancement for at least the last three generations in there line or pedigree for it to have some impact on result in making the desire changes, after these puppies from the out cross are usually bred back into the main breeding line. Out cross breeding should not be done by new breeders or new comers to some breed and outside cross breeding is no way to start a breeding program if seeking to generate constant type, character and soundness in your dogs. Even long time breeders have made mistakes when out crossing and it's the quickest way to modify type, temperament and soundness in any breeding program in almost any breed of dog. I allways recommend you to educate yourself, understand your breed of dog, do a little generation research and at leat learn basic genetic knowledge or do some studying before you start to devour some breed of dog. Additionally seek the help of other successful breeders in your breed of dog that have been around awhile, most good breeders are prepared to assist and give guidance to all novice puppy breeders and new comers.

Lets talk about Line Breeding - Line breeding is the breeding of related dogs swallowed down by a specific breeding line of dogs. Many breeders believe line breeding is close breeding of related dogs and it needs to be avoided. Nothing is farther from the fact. Excellent line breeding will create your best dogs that will in return produce even greater dogs if done right. Line breeding will provide you much higher constant results producing dogs of the identical type, size, quality, traits and temperments. That's if the breeder is starting out with what being great and also the line there jumps straight back into is good with all things they want in there breed of dog. Line breeding will immediately demonstrate a breeder just how great the line of puppies they are working with is but line breeding will also demonstrate the breeder any faults or issues they may have in there breeding program. There are many formulas for line breeding and those are talk in several fantastic books on dog breeding, there are various level's of line breeding too. So it isn't my attenion to enter all these formulas . Yet two which have demonstrated quite sucessufl to me over the years are when you breed a grand dauther to her dams sire, (i.e. grandsire) this does require some innovative planning and does demand both dogs to be of very higher quality with all the good traits you would like and within there strains standard. Half borther and half sister breeding with an outside cross line at the middle of the pedigree has also demonstrated very good results if the dogs used are of really great quality, sound and have great temperments. Line breeding does need knowledge and research. Its is allways recommended for you due this prior to any breeding of dogs. Line breeding in most cases will create you better and greater quality of dogs at almost any breed so long as you are starting out with very good bred inventory of the breed of puppy you are trying to breed. Line breeding was proven by many top breeders and high kennels across the world among the best methods to create better dogs.

Lets talk about Inbreeding - Inbreeding is the very close breeding online bred stock to each other. Example of the are litter brother to litter sister, Sire to daughter, or mother to son, etc.. This sort of breeding should never be accomplished by many. Some exact expereienced breeders may occasion pull on a inbreeding to put in a trait or type but compared to breeding of these dogs down from this point has to be used carefully and within the goals for which they have been bred for. Inbreeding is only for very knowledgeable long time breeders to even under take as this kind of breeding will really intact the excellent traits as well as bring out any undesirable traits or problem to a very large level. Inbreeding has yet produce some quite great excellent puppies that have in return create other very large quality puppies however many inbreedings due effects in breeders have to put down many dogs also and it is not for the weak in mind. Inbreeding isn't a recommended form of breeding dogs expect in some very experience breeders programs, usually completed one time only for that 1 purpose.

The breeding of purebred dogs shouldn't be taken lightly, and each breeder should always work to gain as much understanding as they can on there breed of dog, its kind, breed standard, soundness and wellbeing not to getting its true temperament. Bearing this in mind and do your reseach for a dog breeder it will insure that you just breed better and wholesome dogs for many years to come. After all breeding prue bred dogs is an actual art form and breeding better dogs must always be you aim. Don't purchase you next dog from just anybody, seek a fantastic breeder of that breed of dog you need who has existed and breeding for some time. You will be much happier with your pet purchase and so will your puppy and puppy be happier and healthy for a lot more decades to come. Nowadays most good breeder also supply health guarantee's on puppies they market and good breeders stand behind there dogs because they know what has gone into producing them.
