Yet they get the majority of the placements & titles. It's really a no brainer here. Momma matters most.Yes there are lower level dogs being bred to high end dogs bcause stud owners don't say no to the money typically. Can a JH bitch bred to stud A have better pups than a MH bitch bred to stud A? Yes. It's more than the bitches titles. It's whats in pedigree and studs pedigree and how they mesh. I am sitting here looking at the catalog from last weeks trial and I bet less than 1/4 of the dogs are from FC AFc bitches.
