LOL Odds are, because of the sheer numbers of dogs not hunted, there are much better dogs curled up on someones couch than any of you will ever see. Odds are, you are going to also breed a lot of crap....with a few good-un thrown in there.
" They do so utilizing bloodlines/genetics that others before them and around them are working with."
Just what do you think a bloodline is???? Comes from a line of dogs. So, how do you plan on doing that? Genetics, you mean randomly bred genetics that are all over the map?

Rather I have stated my opinion that the best determinate for breeding a dog is the process of raising it, training it and hunting it. The breeders I want to buy a dog from do just that. And they test their dogs as well. Some breeders however just test their dogs and hunt very little. I do not buy my puppies from them.

We hunt a lot, but we can't give up everything and family to work with dogs. Others will, and that's fine, but no need to criticize others efforts to improve the breed.

Can you tell which is the most confident, strongest dog in the litter......and each dog in descending order? I am guessing it is going to be an easy deal.
