Explanation on Inbreeding Coefficients:  The inbreeding coefficient (COI) shows how diverse the pedigree is with different ancestors and calculates the percentage of inbreeding based on how many times the same ancestors are found in a pedigree.  The Ancestor Loss Coefficient (AVK) is the amount of genetics lost within the gene pool by doing a particular breeding combination.  The Ancestor Loss Coefficient should be as close as possible to 100% and Inbreeding Coefficient being as close as possible to 0%.  Genetics experts recommend a COI no higher than 6% in 5 generations with a recommendation of under 3% in 5 generations being ideal to maintain diversity.  The Global GP Database can help buyers assess the level of inbreeding of the parents of most litters. Example: Nikki’s litter with Force born in November is 1.279% COI in 5 generations with an AVK of 95.2%.  Merlot and Ace’s litter planned for January is 3.86%. I have bred several generations of outcrossed pedigrees and I have maintained excellent structure, type, health, temperament and movement.  Contrary to breeders “popular belief” that line breeding is the only method to maintain quality and type, here at Oakwood we have proven that quality and type can be maintained with excellent results without putting puppies and the gene pool at greater risk for genetic health and temperament problems by inbreeding or linebreeding.  The Merlot x Ace breeding is my first litter combining two Oakwood dogs since 2009 and remains within the recommended level below 6% inbreeding, the litter is loosely line bred on my foundation bitch Georgia, who is Merlot’s grandmother and Ace’s great grandmother.
