Just a few thoughts:
We don't know for sure if the dogs Tammy listed are not getting bred because they are carriers. Could be, but who really knows.
I for one would breed to any of those dogs if I felt they would nick well with my Bitchline.
I had 1st choice of a pup when I bred my bitch to Ali - I kept a carrier because it was the pup I liked the best( Litter had 2 carriers & 5 clears).
In two breedings to two carrier sire's I have not had one person ask me if they were getting a carrier or clear pup.
They liked the breeding and are or were hoping to get a a pup that can be successful. I did test and told them after they had picked a pup.
2nd litter all went to FT homes and again all just are hoping to have one that will play the game.
The AI vet I use who is a retired Reproductive College Vet, developed CC the clone cat, said we are going to do more damage by getting rid of the carriers-
When you limit the gene pool you will have other serious problems develop , Look at the problems that Goldens have with a limited gene pool.
With the EIC test we can breed responsible and keep the excellent traits that the carrier dogs have whether male or female.
I am getting ready to bred my young bitch to Ali. I have trained with him and love everything about him and most importantly he has proven to
nick well with my bitchline and that is super important to me. I love Cane and Bullet who I have watched compete, but just not sure how the pedigree's match- one doesn't for sure, so going with the known. Have not seen the other two, but know they have great records. This is an age old argument and I just hope and pray that people will do what is best for the breed and keep the carriers and clears coming so we don't destroy the gene pool.
