Types Of Dog Breeding
Dog breeding is a very complicated process and should be taken up
by professionals only. Dog breeding is about improving the breed and not about
bringing a litter into this world. There are simply too many dogs dying in
shelter homes mainly due to careless and thoughtless breeding. You should not
breed your dog simply because you want puppies.
A professional and
responsible dog breeder knows the pros and cons of various kinds of breeding.
The decision that he takes will keep in mind the welfare of the dogs and the
Various Types Of Breeding
Inbreeding: refers to the mating of closely related animals, like
mother/son, father/daughter, sibling/sibling, and half sibling/half sibling.
Inbreeding produces uniform and predictable offspring. Dog breeders do it to
eliminate unwanted traits and to double up good genes. The other benefit is
that hidden genes show up and they can then be removed. Inbreeding also has
negative consequences for the breed. In the long run, the breed becomes
genetically impoverished. Faults and weaknesses add up in a breed. It also
leads to reproductive failures and loss of vigor.
I refers to mating of less closely related dogs. It produces predictable
offspring and slows genetic impoverishment. It does not halt genetic
impoverishment, but only slows it down.
Out-Crossing: refers to
the mating of unrelated dogs within the same breed. In dog breeding it would
mean that a common ancestor is not present behind either parent within a four
or five-generation pedigree.
Out-Crossing: The breeding is done to bring
in new qualities and to reintroduce lost qualities. It improves the immune
system, vigor and reproductive capacity. The offspring are not predictable and
it might bring in some unwanted quality.

ultimately lead to a breed that has a pure immune system. Inbreeding has
resulted in problems in several breeds. For example, breeders carried out
extensive inbreeding in Pugs to have a flatter face and a rounder head. This
resulted in more c-sections being done. Due to inbreeding some breeds cannot
give birth without human assistance.
Issues like genetics,
line-breeding, cross-breeding, etc can be too complicated for a layperson. That
is why it is advised that dog breeding should be left to professionals, who
know the breed in and out. It takes many years to completely understand all
aspects of dog breeding and even then one can never be to sure.
