Not quite. The more positive experiences with people a dog has as a pup, the more positively they relate to people.Or, to look at it another way, the more training a dog has, the better they behave, simply because they have a better understanding of what sort of behavior is accepted and expected - which isn't the same thing as calmness of temperament. Did you see the part in Redyre Rotties's post that mentioned that breeding ALWAYS carries the risk of death? Every breeder is risking the life of their female every time they breed her, regardless of species or the amount of care she is given. Yes, better care helps to reduce the risk, but it is always there. Another note - some female dogs no longer tolerate the presence of their puppies past a certain age. There's no way of knowing whether yours would be one of them, but I have known people who kept a pup from a litter, only to have the dam repeatedly attack the younger dog when it matured. Blood ties are not a guarantee that dogs will get along.
