Would the lab breed be better off?

If you feel our breed wouldn't be better off do you feel it would be better off in the future not breeding carriers?

We will leave this to the dicussion area. Or we can start another poll. I am curious if people feel that not breeding the great dogs who were carriers in the past would but us better or worse off or the same.

We have absolutely no way of knowing. Maybe yes, maybe no.

What if they were bred and only their clear progeny campaigned and bred. What would the answer be then? Again, we do not know.

Maybe if there was a test 20+ years ago, some of the progeny of these dogs that were non-carriers would have gone to competitive homes instead of the carriers. Maybe the brothers and sisters of these great dogs would have also been succesful and their lines would continue today. We just do not know.
