I was talking with a friend of mine the other day about breeding type to type versus breeding pedigree to pedigree (of course, given ALL other considerations [like health] are properly investigated as well). Personally, I am a believer in breeding type to type, the only reason being I am a more visual type of person and can actually see the major contributors on both sides of the equation. The gal I was talking to believes that pedigree to pedigree is just a good as breeding type to type, I don't know so much about this as you could have two different types of dogs and I would think this would possibly throw any probable consistency in the litter to the wind. Breeders: Thoughts? Experiences?
