Sweet spot for breeding
I just wanted some opinions about something I heard from a lady I recently met. We were talking about breeding and reproducing a dog and the theories and application of breeding and how statistical models are now being used to predict the likelihood of a litter having xyz traits, etc. Anyways, she told me that the sweet spot was to have the sireís father and the damís grandfather to be the same dog. Iím assuming that she meant that it was a sweet spot in terms of reproducing that particular dog. Does anybody have any experience with that? Does that make sense to a breeder or does experience show that to be true? Iím not a breeder but I found that remark really interesting and Iím just wondering if anybody would agree with that?

Well that would be a good question for an experienced breeders.
My concern would be, if there were any faults in the linage you would be perpetually breeding them in, it seems.
Will be eager to hear from our breeder folks
