1. Avoid unjustified outcrosses. Justified outcrosses can be extremely useful, while others lead to the accumulation in the breed of all the defects that you can imagine.

2. Do not lay the line just for the linear dilution process. Linear dilution of complementary types can achieve good results. Using non-complimentary types leads to disaster.

3. Do not listen to the advice of people who are not successful, like divorcees. They must confirm their opinion with successful practical results.

4. Do not believe the popular cliche that the brothers and sisters of the great Champions are also good at breeding. In isolated cases, this is true, in hundreds of cases - no. It all depends on the particular manufacturer.

5. Do not give your own dog an inherent dignity. Self-deception is a sure step to failure.

6. Do not breed mediocre, "average" dogs. Lack of flaws does not compensate for the lack of advantages.

7. Do not lay the line, focusing on two different types of dogs. Most often, such a derivative does not fix the characteristic features of either one or another outstanding manufacturer.

8. Do not evaluate a producer by its worst offspring. From time to time, all manufacturers "litter". It only matters how good the best descendants of the dog are.

9. Do not allow personal relationships to influence the choice of manufacturer. If this dog is best suited for your bitch, make the right choice, regardless of who owns it.

10. Being blinded by the merits of a breeding dog, do not close your eyes to its shortcomings.

11. Do not knit a male and female with the same defects.

12. Evaluate the dog as a whole. Do not lose any of the advantages or useful qualities in the pursuit of other outstanding features of the exterior.

13. Do not look for the perfect dog for your bitch. The ideal dog did not exist, does not exist, and will not exist!

14. Do not be afraid to breed your bitch, with a representative of the breed, which has obvious flaws, in the presence of compensating indisputable advantages. Lack of merit is the worst of all.

15. Do not cross dogs of non-complimentary types. The ability to accurately determine the type is the greatest gift of a divorce. Ask the successful breeders to explain to you what it is - there is no other way to learn it. In my concept, non-complimentary types are those that, having similar flaws, do not have common advantages.

16. Pay great attention to maintaining a high level of pedigree of the head, otherwise this quality will disappear like a mirage.

17. Do not forget that one of the most important goals is to combine power and sophistication in one dog. And every fool can just tie one dog with another!

18. Remember that the next goal facing you is to obtain a high-breed head and a proportionate dog as a whole. Many scouts never reach her.

19. Never try to blame honored dogs. Beauty is not eternal pleasure. Such a dog should serve as a source of pride and aesthetic satisfaction for all true breed lovers.

20. Do not be content with anything but the best. Beauty, like freshness, is only the first. “Second-rate” beauty is never good enough.
