So, I know of some top breeders that breed dogs that granted, have their Ch title, but are vWD affected. Is it just me that thinks this is unethical breeding? I would think that no matter how great the overall dog and pedigree is that health should be the first priority when breeding. I know that they suggest breeding carriers to clears to keep the gene pool more diverse, but to breed an affected dog? Even if it's to just to clear dogs(which I'm sure isn't the case with all breedings as the dog they're breeding is affected). I thought that our purpose for breeding was to produce the healthiest dogs? Having a vWD affected dog can be avoided, so why would you breed knowing the dog will have health issues throughout it's life? I'm just frustrated... Any opinions?
