What Does Population Genetics Have To Do With Breeding Dogs?
02/02/2014 by Carol Beuchat PhD
For most of history, people bred dogs to produce a particular type suitable for work, companionship, or whatever, and knowledge about genes and the principles of inheritance were used to improve...
The Pox of Popular Sires
by Carol Beuchat PhD
The most common admonition of the geneticist to the dog breeder is to "avoid the Popular Sire Syndrome". At the same time, the most common advice from breeder to breeder is "breed the best to best". So the conundrum is obvious and the...
I am looking for any info articles on ed reid and ed reid bred dogs. I know one of his most famous dogs is skipper Rom. I also know he was the first or one of the first people to import APBTs into the UK and has a Kennel club in the UK. I guess what I am looking for is if anybody has any of his...
How Much Is That Doggie In The Window? The Surprising Economics Of Purchasing A Purebred Puppy
Allen St. John Contributor
The song got it right. As much as dog lovers melt over a cute, cuddly puppy, when it comes time to actually buy a dog, price sensitivity enters into it. In a recent, very...
I'd like to get some opinions on breeding to chase a dead dog. Inbreeding to the point where a dog that has been gone over a decade, can be counted over and over with zero outs.
How harmful is this practice and when does it get to the point when you have to let this dog go and look to the...
Why You Need Population Genetics:
the "Elevator Pitch"
by Carol Beuchat, PhD
1) All the useful genetic variation your breed will ever have was in the dogs that founded the breed. This genetic diversity is finite.
2) Each generation, alleles can be lost by chance (this is called "genetic...

Disclaimer : This is only one of the practices I have adopted in breeding. I am sharing it mainly for new comers but it is NO way an assertion or claim to be a golden rule that all should follow. The numbers can vary based on person to person and the resources and people available to each.
I'm just wondering if anyone has some advice on two red nose dogs throwing black nose pups? The litter is half red nose half black. I've heard mixed things just wondering what the chances are of such high percentage of black nose pups?
Who Here Has Successfully Inbred Their Dogs? When i say successfully i mean the offspring are close to as good as the parents or even better, no major defects,
And if you have had success with inbreeding how tight did you get before it went bad?
what's yours favourites kennel in the EU ? and why ?
Yesterday I had a " conversation" with a partner of mine who tried to convince me the "best" dogs can't be found in the states. Now if you know me then you know I had to strongly disagree. Below were my points. Comments and opinions are welcomed.
1. The term best is subjective
2. There is no...
DNA SMOKESCREEN OF GENETICS
by Barbara J. Andrews, Publisher - TheDogPlace.org , with a little help from BILL ANDREWS
Just when you think you understand Canine Genetics, DNA, and words like phenotype & genotype, someone hands you common sense about breeding dogs.
Just wondering who's running them these days looking for dogs down from j Nelson j deloach r Ramsey f Cochran the real stuff
Think about the best dogs you ever had. How did you come by them? The best dogs I ever had were given to me by their breeder! Deal was if I did not like them or could not keep them for what ever reason they went back to the breeder. Most all (except for 1) the dogs I ever paid good money for...
Anyone deal with this kennel before, they seem to have some good termite blood. Since I am not from the US, any recommendations or help would be appreciated.
my $#@! just dropped a beautiful litter but im wondering why one pup is blue... the mom is a rednose, and the dad is somewhat like that ol' ironhead dog. I know the parents and I know that the people I got em from don't really touch that blue stuff when aiming for their game stock. I even kept my...
THE NAME IN FRONT OF THE DOG
This is an important subject to me. I started buying pit bull terriers in 1968. Back then, most people put their own name in front of any dog they purchased. For example: if Mr. Smith buys a dog called Carver's PETE from Mr. Carver, then Mr. Smith would call this...

Why or why not would you register with UKC ?

A big thanks to dog lover (and Facebook friend) Michelle Gonsalves, for this well worded commentary on “purebred dogs creating shelter dogs”. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Over the years there’s been a growing number of uninformed voices rallying against the wonderful LOVING world of...

When you have actually been around & you have more than an IQ of 3, you will more than likely have you own line with in & no later than 10years of dealing with these dogs. I doesn't take much nor is it that hard to find dogs worth breeding on re-guard less of what your doing with these dogs. It...
