    I hear people talking about they have this bloodline or that bloodline as if they have a superior bloodline. All so called lineages have culls and winners. That will never change. Yes you can increase the chances by selective breeding but that's jus chances. I've seen cold dogs throw some of the best dogs you can lay your eyes on. I've also seen ch. And gr ch. Dogs throw lap dogs. Just to make it clear, do you believe the whole bloodline crap?

    I believe that you'll have a better chance at winning in whatever venue you're competing in, if you have a proven bloodline of champs behind your dog. However, even champ sires can produce offspring that wouldn't compete well. Alternatively, I have a friend right now showing her BYB bitch (before she knew better) and they're doing pretty well.

    For me, it's not about supporting a particular "bloodline" than it is finding a breeder whose morals are in line with my own. However, I don't hunt and any competitions we do are purely for fun (plus I own a mutt right now anyway) so I don't need to have a top performer. If I was more competitive, I think I would definitely look for dogs with proven ancestry, than one without.

    You have a point. ALL of the lines produce winners and culls. Take the jeep dog for example he quit it's documented and he's still one of the top sought after stud roms.

    So you're of the opinion that people should rely less on pedigree research, breed whatever to whatever and hope for the best because "it's all chance anyway?"

    No you have to have some kind of selective breeding but like I said it only increases chances of you getting what u want not guarantee.

    Well, duh...that's the whole point of choosing a breed, let alone a breeder. If I want an easily trained, happy go lucky, drivey dog it can use for agility, rally, and other dog sports I'm going to look at breeds typically used for these venues. Thus why I have an Icelandic Sheepdog not a Shiba Inu, yes I MIGHT find a shiba that will, but my odds are much better the icie will do it all. When looking at a breeder for any breed I'm interested in I look for the one doing dog sports AND conformation with their dogs, because if I buy an APBT I want my dog to look like a true APBT not an American Bully, I want brains and beauty.

    Might I find this at a back yard breeder, sure, but by choosing an ethical, reputable breeder I'm stacking the odds in my favour that it will happen.

    My opinion is that I have 2 mutts that are pretty awesome weight pull dogs but when it came to selecting my next dog for WP I went with a breeder who combined specific bloodlines to produce competitive working APBT.

    I know that certain dogs are better at doing different things. But like I keep saying your dog maybe a weight pulling champion,but the puppies may not do anything. That's just like in the fighting game once colby was top dog then Eli then redboy etc ect . They are the same dogs inbred and linebred. Either the dog is gonna perform or it doesnt.

    Only puppy peddlers believe in that bloodline mess. A bulldog is a bulldog either he performs or he doesn't point blank period. Yes you can take credit for breeding the dog but that doesn't change the bloodline. He is still a bulldog. Not a plott not a Labrador.

    You're as clueless as to what makes a bloodline a bloodline as you are about any other aspect of genetics. You're not just a troll, you're a hopeless troll. Thread closed as it's obvious that the OP has zero interest in learning anything, and without that, there is no way the thread can objectively progress.
