Worried about the genetic diversity in your breed? Want proof that you are preserving what you have? 

Want to know if your linebreeding is too close or if your outcross is really an outcross?

We’ve all heard over the last decade or so about loss of genetic diversity in purebred dogs. Whether your breed has lots of diversity or not so much, there are things you can do right now – without sacrificing your other goals – that will help conserve existing diversity in your breed.

Learn to look at genetic relatedness to help you assess whether dogs are closely related to your dogs, even if their pedigree is alike or different from your dog

Learn what all the terms and measurements really mean, how to assess your dogs for yourself, how to evaluate a breeding.
