Can Dog Breeding Practices Be Changed?

The Practice of In-breeding and Line-breeding in purebred dogs is discussed in a much-needed article in “The Bark” magazine, September-October issue.  The article entitled; Breeding Paradox; Can dog breeding practices be changed? by John Woestendiek.

Many breeders today in the United States practice in-breeding and line-breeding in all breeds.  It has caused an ocean of health problems in every breed.  Some breeds have passed the point of being saved due to genetic disorders from this practice.  Still many breeders, dog clubs, dog registries, etc. put their head in the sand and pretend it is not happening.  Instead they boast of health clearances and sell bold guarantees on the health of these puppies/dogs.  The public is unaware.  No one can give a clearance for health on any dog/puppy that has been in-bred or line-bred.  Generations of these practices is a nightmare for the dogs/puppies that have to endure the health problems and their owners that do everything in their power to save them.

It’s time to demand from the AKC, dog clubs, dog registries and breeders that these insane practices of in-breeding and line-breeding be stopped.

It would the greatest loss we as a people ever endured if we lost the Golden Retriever and other breeds that we all love.  It’s happening NOW!

White Oak Golden Retrievers has clean lines of goldens and we do NOT in-breed or line-breed.  We have a very healthy line of puppies that we offer to good families across America.

Pick up a copy of “The Bark” today.  This current issue also has a great article on diet written by the Editor in Chief; Claudia Kawczynska.  If you have a dog; you need this info.
