That's why you need to know what you're on with and cull hard, by that I don't necessarily mean shoot the things but expel them from the gene pool.

They probably should be put down, you don't want to give someone a sickly dog. It's all too much for me to stomach plus I'm too old to start a line of dogs, lol.

A brother sister mating from which a bitch was again put back to the sire produced this dog. Like the rest of the litter he is bursting with health and vitality and hes slightly bigger than both of hi

mC you are totally wrong about a terrier not being a performance athlete, a terrier gone to ground working Fox and Badger (historically) pushes its body through the pain barrier more than any other ca

my old bitch bred like that she thrived on lots of stick n the stronger the hares the better for her.

Which makes you ask what's the point in breeding in the first place.

Well if you breed your own at least you know the history of the bitch, and if you’re sensible you’ll have seen the stud dog run, which is more than you’ll know if you buy a pup in from someone else

All this talk of culling hard, most men I met that talk that way are more likely to breed from a jacker than cull it when you get to know them

That is sadly true. A lot like to do the talk but have never actually culled anything and prefer to sell or breed from them.

A lot of what you hear about inbreeding is just that, hearsay and born out of a lack of experience and knowledge. Ignorance breeds fear.

Bonny looking dog. 

Genuinely out of interest, why would you breed pups from the same litter? You must have a reason or was that all that you had to breed from? Not having a dig, just interested to know, as inbreeding is still inbreeding and won't add anything if done continually.

That’s what I’ve seen men go on about testing dogs & how they’d never keep a jacker, then it does it in front of their eyes and they act like the ain’t seen it, or make up an injury and forget about it

I personally think that tight breeding is a good thing especially if your after keeping dogs for certain jobs the odd slip back to close related blood is always a good thing at keeping the type of stamp tight of the dog/s you require for your needs without touching other peoples experiments  I think with line breeding you’ve got to really know what your at an be pretty firm an not change your goal post with what you require you gotta stay consistent with what you require an not settle for no less

Inbreeding won't put something there that isn't already there. If you have two sound dogs and breed them together then you will get healthy offspring.

👍😅 if you listened to some on here you would expect dogs with 2 heads each litter 🤣

Breeding from a small gene pool of dogs will give you a smaller gene pool over time which is what you wouldn't want as physical and mental quality will be reduced over time. That's just how breeding works, similar in people.

Take a total outcross, the number of possible combinations of chromosomes is almost 550 billion (39 multiplied by itself 39 times).putting a brother to a sister would half that,but at the same time you may have inherited the bad genes/faults from both sides and every time you breed the line/cross into itself ,you run the risk of dodgy recessive genes meeting their counterpart..also true for desirable traits though.

If you have a seriously good dog in your kennel and you want to keep that, then you need to breed in and in. Yes you will get improved stock aswell. We were lucky to have a brother and sister that were equal in work and also came from exceptional parents. 

Do you breed yourself? Have you bred close relatives? Just wondering where you are getting your ideas from.
