I have discussed about breeding in many of my articles, today I am gling to talk about Breeding Types. Before going further let be understand what is breeding. Breeding in dogs means mating male dog with female dog for future production. If you want to understand breeding process than visit our article Complete Breeding Guide.

Pedigree or Lineage

For understanding types of breeding we should know about pedigree. Pedigree of dog a dog is information that provides us the detail of his ancestors. Pedigree contains the information about minimum 6-7 generations. This helps us in understanding the background of a dog. A successfull breeder looks for pedigree more than anything.

So coming back to the point of Breeding Types, everybody has his own theory. Many catagories it into three catagories, some into four but I am catagorising it into five catagories or types to understand it fully. These breeding types are:-

1. Line Breeding

2. In-Breeding

3. Cross Breeding

4. Back Breeding

5. Mix Breeding

Normally people talk about first three types as they are common amkng people, but next two still exists. So lets discuss about all of them.

1. Line Breeding

The most successful type of breeding is line breeding. Line breeding involves male and female who are having common ancestral background, but they should not have the common parentage. Mother-son, daughter-father and brother-sister are also excluded from line breeding. The link of ancestors may be as long as upto 6 generations.

Line breeding give great results as it is pure in it’s type. All the best fact of a pedigree got embeded in a puppy through line breeding and lrediction about his future quality can be made by us.

2. In-Breeding

In-breeding means involvement of direct family members in breeding process, but except mother and father of family. Examples of in-breeding is father-daughter, mother-son and brother-sister.

In-breeding is just like a lucky draw it may be too much successful or may be a big failure. It may give you best qualities available in that line or may come out with all the health related disorders. In-breeding puppies sometimes are superior in quality even of their parents, but their is also a risk of multiplitation of health related issues.

3. Cross Breeding

Above we have two types breeding, that involve ancestors or family members in breeding, but cross breeding is different from both of these. In cross breeding male and female do not have any common ancestor upto six generations.

Cross breeding is also very popular among breeders as it gives you chance to combine positive points of two different lines. This helps in enhancing the performance and quality of future generations.

4. Back Breeding

Back breeding is process which is similar to line breeding, but is still different from it. In back breeding a male is mated with a female and when their puppies come a female puppy is choosen for future mating with his father. And when that female got mated by his father than a female puppy is again choosen from that litter to be mated by his father. This process contineus for many generations untill a desired result do not get produced.

Back breeding is considered as a method for success from many well known breeders. Back breeding requires lot of patient for the desired result.

5. Mix Breeding

All above breeding types are commonly discussed by many of us but mix breeding is most rare in all breeding types. Mix breeding means mating two different breeds for generating a new breed. For example pitbull was generated by mating bulterrier and staffordshire. Mix breeding requires lot of knowledge for its implementation.

Mix breeding gives us chance to enhance the performance of dig and develop a breed according to our desire. But a proper research os required for doing mix breeding.

Above we have discussed about breeding types and how they effect the future generation. Breeding is a task of great knowledge and of your are planning to breed your female look upon this article and think what outcome you want. For more articles like this keep visiting our site.
