Lloyd C. Brackett, Breeder of German Shepherd Dogs “Linebreeding is mating animals who are closely related to the same ancestor, preferably one whose type it is desired to obtain in the resultant progeny.” “Inbreeding implies a much closer relationship between the mating pair than does linebreeding.”

Lloyd C. Brackett ……. “To achieve any lasting results in breed improvement, a breeder must use a system of linebreeding which not only combines animals very similar in their characteristics but also narrows the pedigree to a few closely related lines of descent. This enables a breeder to control to some extent, all characteristics. It reduces variability to a minimum”

Lloyd C. Brackett ……. “Linebreeding does not replace selection, on the contrary, it demands the most discriminating choosing within the line.” Selecting by pedigree, without consideration of physical compensation (crossfaulting), will undoubtedly result in dogs with notable faults and will insure failure quicker and more certainly than will any other system of breeding.”

Lloyd C. Brackett ……. Use strict culling along with any linebreeding or inbreeding program. Inbreeding will bring out or intensify all genetic material (good and bad) that a line has … the bad must be eliminated and the good (if you get what you desire) used in continuing linebreeding or inbreeding.”
