Titles for breeding?

What types of titles and how many would you consider "adequate" for breeding? I know the obvious answer would be "as many as possible" or SchH3, but at what point would a breeder decide their dog would make for good breeding stock?
I'm not asking because I want to breed my dog but what would you consider an absolute must before you'd put your kennel's name on a future puppy?

Absolute minimum for me: SchH 1, OFA hips & elbows, plus my own feeling that she is a great bitch. Better with an AD, conformation rating of "G" or better, and breed survey.

I agree with Uniballer.

If they were in the ring, I'd want an AKC CH. before breeding plus hips/elbows and personal feeling.

Sorry, Uniballer doesn't agree with you. No SchH1, no breeding. It's OK to also put an AKC CH on her if you want, though .

I don't mean this as a personal attack but don't want your statement of agreement to include me as accepting a double standard for different lines.

I only agreed with you on Sch, don't worry. You don't have to agree with me.

I personally haven't looked at dogs in which at least one of the parents is SchH3. SchH1 OK on the other, but I want at least SchH3 on one of them. And I was to see consistent SchH3 in their pedigree (or IPO3 or whatever the equivelant is in whatever country they are from) back many generations. I think that the parents being titled is only a small part of the equation and one generation is not really a good way to tell if the parent is suitable for breeding. I also look at what titles the littermates have on them.

Assuming that the double standard Uniballer mentioned isn't going to go away tomorrow, what do you want to see on the show lines, just the CH or more at the other end of the name?

I think OFA hips at least good. OFA normal elbows. CERF cleared. At least one working title (not everyone can afford SchH). I wouldnt put a limit on the type of title, there are so many different disciplines to title a dog in. A working title shows the dog can handle the stress of training and titling at a trial. I would look at the confirmation of the dog also. I dont think I would require a working line dog to have a CH on it. I would like to get a confirmation rating on my working line female, but that would require SchH work.
