Dog breeders want to insure the pedigree of the breed so it does not change for future generations. If a dog is registered as to its lineage or parents and this continues for generations it insures that the line is intact and that the animal has not been crossbred or inbred. When the bloodlineis secure and there is no history of defects in the breed,breeders can get more money for their dogs. Show dogs that are grand champions because they represent the best of breed can bring breeders high residual income for their offspring.
