      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Pedigree/Inbreeding

Recommended Posts

Serious Dog Folks, and Local Genetic Experts-

How much...is too much? For instance, out of 8 great, great grandfathers…and 8 great, great grandmothers, how many repeats or multiples?

Some breeders may not depart from there line of dogs enough.

There is no cut and dried answer to this question. I think it depends on the line and the judgement of the breeder and what he/she is trying to accomplish.

I have had a couple dogs where the same ancestors show up multiple times in the pedigree on both sides. They were/are good linebred birddogs.

It's kind of a buyer beware thing too. If a person is not comfortable with tight breeding then don't buy.

Weed Shark are you looking at a breeding trying to decide to take the plunge?

Gspman,

I likely will take the plunge today. There is a "great, great grandfather" that shows up multiple times in the pedigree.

Now that I've slept on it, I'm bothered a little, but not enough to sway me. I've done enough other research.

What dog do you have and plan on breeding (male or female)? Do you plan on outcrossing or breeding back to the same line?

Ive done alot of studying and reading lately on breeding dogs. It played a big role in how I determined who I buy my dogs from. If you do a google search for "westwind gsp linebreeding" you will find a very lengthy article on this subject.

I personally look at breeders who sell their dogs with limited registration, to ensure that their line will be maintained or moved ahead, if the owners should choose to breed them.

Successful breeding is a long and difficult task. It requires several years commitment to a particular line of dogs. Its not as simple as just pairing 2 dogs together and a sucessfull breeding doenst happen over night.

A breeding should be well thought out, and most importantly done to improve the line or breed. It shouldnt be done based on titles but on natural raw talent.

To me the question is not about line breeding, but what dogs do I want to see line breed. Line breeding can intensify health problems if the are some in the line or can keep your line clean. Pure bred dogs are all a product of line breeding. As per your concern about sharing a grand parent, the question why is that dog showing up and is it good or bad.

One of the nicest litters I ever seen was a father\daughter hook up. Don't let the white haired banjo playing kid give line breeding a bad rap, remeber he was a he11 of a picker.

Remember that dogs have an extra chromosome than people so breeding closer together isn't as dangerous. I wouldn't hesitate to go with a great grandfather that shows up multiple times, a mother to son or brother to sister would be a little close for me but my dog has the same dog for grandfathers on both sides and he he also the great grand father on one side.

Line breeding for dogs was based on the breeding they did for cattle, if done correctly and responsibly there should be no problems.

I am of the same opinion as Setterguy. Gr-Grandfather is far enough back, IMO to not be a major concern. It is a fairly common practice in our dog club to see that, and it has been done for the last 100+ yrs.

Good luck!

I'm sending my deposit. Thanks for your info.

In this case Great, Great Grandpa shows up 5-8. So there is, half-brothers and half-sisters, from him, breeding on both sides as grandparents. It is a very good dog to show up repeatedly.

    • I had same challange. Went with a 12v temperature relay switch. Heater/Fans in my DIY wheelhouse now functions just like my home or RV forced air furnance. It comes with a small heat sensing probe i mounted on my upper air duct than set the on/off temperature so fans runs/stops when heat kicks on/off. Provides perfect comfort for $15.00. https://www.walmart.com/ip/bayite-DC-12V-Fahrenheit-Digital-Temperature-Controller-10A-1-Relay-with-Sensor/585224840?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=12524&adid=22222222227093022211&wmlspartner=wmtlabs&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=t&wl3=213210114658&wl4=pla-345493512458&wl5=9019533&wl6=&wl7=9019476&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=117430032&wl11=online&wl12=585224840&wl13=&veh=sem   Sensor under foil tape   Took photo when furnace was off. Temp range -40 to 230 f. Spare probe to right of controller, copper tube is thermostat, black button is pilot iginter.   Total set up with 4 speed auto fan switch. 
    • Anyone know what depth I should be looking for Walleye’s at? I’ve always went just south of the main city in bayport on the wi side. In 32-36fow seems to be a crappie spot. Any suggestions would be great. 
    • Well, craapy wood work or not. Had a very good day with my son for our first ice fishing trip in 10 years or so and put a few Walleyes on the ice. Let a nice 25" go.     Remember, it's not always what a box looks like. It's what you do with it!
    • Listening to the weather ,,, It sounds like the snow is going to go east of the northern part of the state ,,, I may have to buy a Wisc trail permit and head east
    • I used to watch lake forums very closely to hear the current chatter.  I never fish any of those lakes anymore, but I'm still curious.  Not to knock on any specific site, but it seems there is no longer any lake-specific chatter on the web.  Five to ten years ago, those forums were on fire with tips, pictures, etc.  Have they burned themselves out due to acceleration of info and subsequent mobbing, or what's the deal?   A few weeks ago, even the DNR made comment that the speed of information has had an impact on fisheries.     Curious what others think.  
    • Nice win tonight, but my goodness! I hope they never wear those uniforms again! 
    • Haven’t really posted on here all year, but here goes. It was an absolutely terrible season for me. I work 14 days then I’m off 7 days, and my 7 days off fell just so that I was only able to get out twice in November and then 5 days last week. Thankfully, last week made up for it and we shot some incredible trophies including 9 cinnamon teal, several mottled ducks, tons of perfect teal and even a hen Goldie and hen can, which are really weird for the salt. It’s really been a ball figuring out these coastal waters for the last 4 seasons, and I’m still learning new stuff every time I go out
    • I've hunted "A" a few times.  This season has accounted for the easiest and hardest hunts for me to date.  I've gone to hunting the middle seasons and find the birds more predictable.   I've had some great hunts late season as well.  My credo is hunt when you can....
    • Yes...yes it is.....way cheaper then a 10in Nils at $360.
