Do you have to use inbreeding to breed a Rottweiler?
No reputable breeder will use inbreeding exclusively, and many breeders simply never use it. Inbreeding increases homozygosis and decrease heterozygosis. Homozygosis means that certain traits will double up so that now matter what the dog is bred to it will carry on those specific traits.
What does heterozygosis mean for a Rottweiler?
Heterozygosis means that more genes will be in a single dose and less likely to show up in any given trait. So inbreeding can duplicate both desirable and harmful genes, both of which can be unsuspected in the line, and may appear. Inbreeding does NOT create anomalies, it brings present anomalies to the surface.
