    @Davidh but what about genes that they don't know? Or when the gene is hidden and you need to get it from both lines to get affected? There are really horrific conditions that can already kill the whole litter.

    @RiiSi There is always that chance of something you did not see or know about, that can come up. I have never seen it "kill" as you put it, the whole litter. Yes things can appear when the conditions are just right with the genetic makeup of a sire and dam that may appear. But we strive to not have this happen. That is why we choose our mates carefully. When you know the pedigree and the off spring, and I'm talking going back 4 and 5 generations, you pretty much know what you will end up with. Nothing in breeding is a guaranty, but we try to do the best we can.

    @Davidh I'm sure you do the best you can. That is not the question. I just disagree, I think the risks outweigh the benefits and I know of whole litter being killed one by one in the first month after birth.

    @RiiSi I guess I miss understood your question or your concern as I do not understand what part you disagree with. We do not in-breed and do not agree with it. We do have some bullies from line-breeding, which I do agree with, even though we do not do it all the time. So what is it exactly, that you do not agree with, I'm curious.

    Good discussion, and I appreciate the input on the difference. I can see where line-breeding in order to strengthen positive traits is utilized, I just think that 1 generation a part is a bit too close imho, however this is just me looking at it from a morality point of view, as I have no experience with actually breeding.

    @Davidh I Guess it's both that I'm not comfortable with. When does in-breeding become line-breeding? In the end all pedigree dogs are related, but if I see pedigrees with four generations all highlighted with the same dogs I have to wonder. Can all that efect the dog so that there really is more diseases, allegies etc.

    @RiiSi We do not line breed every time, only when we want to achieve or keep a certain trait. In my opinion if you have a dog that has a disease, or bad allegies, or a bad gene that you know about, that dog should not be breed, period. Why would you want to breed that. We are trying to breed that out, and better the breed. This is why you need to pay close attention to the two you are mating to achieve the look, temperament, and health of your litter.
