volcano I have a girl, and she may be bred in the future. How would I learn about lines and what dogs put out genetically without asking questions???

SummerGSDLover You all make good points. Thank you for the education, I never looked at it that way.

gsdheeler I'd be looking for traits I like and also traits I want to stay away from.
I'm always interested in who's breeding to what, just a wee bit of a fashion show.

Because sometimes they DO have a vested interest in the dog, if the dog appears in a pedigree for a puppy they are seeking, or they are looking for experiences/opinions on a prospective breeding partner, or they want to gain knowledge about their own dog, if the dog in question appears in its pedigree.

There are some dogs that are "famous", or widely used for breeding, so that they are common to many pedigrees. Knowing what a particular dog is like, you can make inferences about how he will affect a pedigree, and that helps inform you about the breed.

Knowledge is power!

LaRen616 To learn about a specific behavior and get input from others?

I have had friends that have dogs with issues and they have asked me to ask the people from the "dog forums" I belong to for advice.

huntergreen maybe they admired the dog they are inquiring about.

SummerGSDLover I don't know. Nevermind.

Bob_McBob Personally I would feel positive if my dog had a good enough pedigree to be discussed by strangers. What's the big deal? It's an important aspect of breeding.

Here is the link to the pedigree data base German Shepherd Dog

where you can enter a dog's name and you can research a pedigree 5 , 7 generations back.

Public information .

Pedigree is similar to ingredients in a recipe .
