Selecting for or against traits when breeding

In light of some of the posts in the "Breeding dogs with problems" thread, I thought this would be interesting... Just quote me and answer in the quote :-)

What are genetic qualities/characteristics (be they positive or negative) that are very hard to maintain in a breeding program. In other words, genetic qualities/characteristics that are very easily lost if not carefully maintained in each mated pairing?
