OB believe that the most important aspect of breeding your dog is selecting the correct stud for your bitch; factors such as temperament, characteristics and health play a big part when looking for a stud dog.
Here at OB we do a mate select test to ensure we are not inbreeding in anyway and improving the genetic diversity.
PUG – 6%
BULLDOG BREED AVERAGE – 10%
FRENCH BULLDOG BREED AVERAGE – 5%
What does this value mean?
Inbreeding is defined as the mating of related individuals, whether they are distantly related or more closely related. The inbreeding coefficient of an individual is the probability that two copies of the same gene have been inherited from an ancestor shared by both parents. The lower the inbreeding coefficient, the lower the probability/risk of inbreeding.
The pedigree data used to calculate the results extend as far back as 18 generations with the first 6 generations being fully complete.
An inbreeding coefficient of 12.5% means that there is a 1 in 8 chance that a dog will inherit the same version of gene from the same dog that appears in both the sire’s and the dam’s pedigree.
The puppies born to a mother/son, father/daughter or brother and sister mating would be at least 25%. The inbreeding coefficient of puppies from a grandfather/granddaughter mating would be at least 12.5%.
The mate select computations are based upon data compiled from pedigree records and data submitted from breeders/owners connected to the kennel club. Oliver Bulldogs accept no responsibility for the content or the use or interpretation of the information supplied.
