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.  Follow this link to the Global GP Database  where you can look at parents and puppy’s pedigree to assess the level of inbreeding as well as health testing.  Please underatand that all health information is provided by the owners/breeders and should be independently verified.  Example: Nikki’s litter with Force born in November is 1.279% COI in 5 generations with an AVK of 95.2%.  Cami and Felek’s upcoming litter is 1.37% COI and 95.2% AVK. 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.  NOTE: Dogs known to produce health issues in their offspring ARE currently being used in breeding programs and buyers are only being told that the parents have passed their health testing.  While it is true that these dogs have passed their testing, when a stud dog of dam have produced multiple offspring with an issue, clearly their own health testing is not enough proof of good health genetics.  Ask breeders for more than the health certifications of parents!  Ask them what health issues have been produced by the parents and grandparents.  If they are honest they will disclose that information.  Beware the breeder who says they have no issues in health or temperament in their lines… they are probably not telling you the truth.  Research for yourself on www.offa.org or on the German Pincher Global Database.  Honesty and ethics are not required by AKC for “breeders” to register puppies with the AKC.  

How to research pedigrees:

Our second of two litters has arrived May 14th.    Thats going to be it for us for 2019. 

I do not breed commercially or in high volume and prefer to produce a few superior specimens     

rather than crank out a bunch of puppies a year. 

                                                              Quality, not quantity!

                                                                                <- Cami

                                                                                             Kerin ->

Kerin, Cami and Tempest will show in the second half of 2019.  Look for us at shows!   

In the winter/spring of 2020 plans are to breed both Kerin and Cami.
