    Default Has anyone done a line breeding on NAFC Carbon

    I have a nice blf by FC afc ranger x bigguns little jazz(Nafc Carbon x CFC CAFC meadowcreek's AM express). Considering a breeding to a carbon son. Not looking for a sire who throws high dogs as mine really comes up at trials and looses some focus that I usually see in training. I'd like to decrease the intensity a little bit. Has anyone done a line breeding like this. Carbon would be in the second generation on the sires side and 3rd generation on the dams. Too much Cosmo? Is there a better option? Outcross? If so, to whom. She is EIC/CNM clear. Waiting on official results but vet who shot her hips and elbows said everything looked good.

    Line breeding Cosmo lines is like playing Russian roulette with an automatic

    I know the carbon son/daughter x ranger breeding produced nice dogs. But my question involves taking that carbon grand daughter and breeding back to a carbon son hoping to get a dog that is not quite so "high". Has this been done with favorable results?

    Those two, also looking at emmit, FC afc mojo( don't know much about this dog so any info would be appreciated) and also AFC the blueprint. Really trying to get opinions from those that know more than i on if this line breeding will likely produce nice calm focused dogs or fire breathing, I want to do a lot of running around type dogs. I'm planning on keeping one and campaigning it so trying to figure the best option. Also open to a outcross. Thought about Ford.
