canon Leave the breeding to the pro, there's to many crappie wannabe breeders that don't really care what hits the streets. If you ask"Should I breed my dog?" I would say no, for the reason you don't know.

I do not like the flowchart because it's very patronizing, and some statements are questionable. If I were those 'some people' I would be pushed to breed my dog just in spite.
I think a good, responsible breeder will (or should) know if their dog is worth breeding IMHO. They don't have to ask strangers on the internet if it's a good idea.

To me it makes more sense to say, if you are using a random flowchart on the Internet to decide whether to breed your dog, you should not breed your dog.

Liesje Check the a-stamp database. A lot of imported dogs are AKC registered and/or have DNA on file. AKC requires that studs have DNA on file if they produce a certain number of litters. My dog's pedigree has zero OFAs but they are all a-stamped in Germany.

No they do not. Sorry, I should have been more specific.

(but 18 of them have their DNA registered at AKC).
