    Default Line breeding question

    Does any one know what you have when you line breed on Code Blue? Has anyone line bred on Code Blue? Do you get good marking, trainablitiy, you know that kinda stuff. I am looking for answers, so I know weather or not to line breed to Code Blue or not. And the other question is what has one one gotten from line breeding on Fargo II. Has it been done, and if so
    again what was the results? Marking, trainability, etc. Thank you.

    I am not a fan of line breeding and make it a point to diversify my litters gene pool as mach as I can. Some might disagree with me on this. You can Google this topic and get some other opinions. With all the good breeding candidates that breeders have access now a days to why would you consider it?

    Line breeding can bring a lot to the table. You may want to be careful with this one however. Talk to some west coast folks. Try giving Lee Salmon a call at Wind River Labs.

    How close do you want to get?

    Here is an old one with Code Blue in the 2nd gen on top and 4th gen on the bottom. There are a couple of other similar breedings I know about and have seen puppies from.

    Code Blue is very good dog to line bred on. lots of heart, and lots of open points.
    Your question about Fargo lines and Code Blue should lead you to Grady. since his Mother was a littermate to Fargo.

    Lots of very talented current Amatr run dogs are out of both those lines. That Fargo repeat litter with Nike, Nora, and Rosa, comes to mind

    Genetically medical issue I haven't a clue.
    but training ability as you asked about good stuff.

    a friend? has a Grady x Flip Male pup, pedigree has 33% Code Blue. Nice talented layback dog, thinker. Can't go wrong with that.

    Where is the line between inbred and line bred? I thought a lot of it was due to the small size of the pool for performance dogs. ie, if someone gets a top title, that dog is bred a lot so not surprising that it shows up in many pedigrees, more than once. I have one with 2 different dogs that appear 3 times each in the first 3 generations, (if I'm reading this right). Seems pretty close to me.

    Good Lowered you would think we were mixing paint here. A base of Blue and a shot of Old Yellar and maybe a dab or 2 of Whatshername for color.

    It's a crap shoot regards

    I think it is % contribution of a specific dog to the pedigree. Gooddoginfo provides that data for the top contributors to the pedigree. Coefficient of inbreeding is contribution of all common ancestors to a pedigree. K9Data calculates that if enough data is available.
