What happens when you breed a dog back to his dam? Do you see issues in that litter immediately or does it affect later generations or both?

I've done it, and I just got not very good dogs. Every once in a while it will work for intensifying a trait though.

Did it only effect that litter or did it effect subsequent litters as well?

The pups have a high COI (coefficient of inbreeding?).

If you breed them to a dog with a low COI it tends to dissipate. If you breed them to another medium or high COI then the litter will be impacted.

Did you know?
The figure 8 exercise requires the team to heel in a figure 8 pattern either on or off leash. Generally two of the ring stewards will assist the judge with this exercise by acting as "posts", standing 8 feet apart, that the team walks around to form the loops of the figure 8.
