6/13/08 In breeding is what most people would call incest in humans. I will give you an example: A father being bred to his daughter or a brother being bred to his sister. That is in breeding. Line breeding is when you try to keep a certain dog in your lines. You do not have to in breed to line breed. You just have to find dogs that are not closely related to your bitch that have that male close in the bloodline to keep him in it. Most breeders breeders however will breed cousins or uncle to neice to keep that animal in the lines. I hope that helps to explain it. Lisa
