…i.e. how I have in my part aimed to affect the expansion of the genetic pool

Choosing suitable breeding individuals is still nowadays practised among dogs in order to improve the hereditary level regarding some attribute/s. It is the criteria that have changed its form during time.

The dogs' surroundings affect how the genes appear in different individuals and vice versa..
According to the genetic researchers one of the hardest and most troubling part of breeding is the continuously tapering genetic pool, i.e. the decrease of the total of different genes in the dog population. One of the main reasons for this is the actual breeding of thoroughbred individuals, where it is impossible for dogs of different breeds to mate together and gain new genes to their breed from other breeds.

The tapering genetic pool also happens due to the fact that the genetic combination of those dogs not used in breeding disappears.
Siblings from the same litter can have quite varying genetic constituents since the chromosomes of the parents can divide in amazingly different variations among the offspring. The genetic integrity descended from the parents can also vary among those puppies that seem physically similar. In small populations even these "small" variations are vital; if the litter is suitable or even desirable for breeding it is important that many of the descendants of the litter leave their genes in the population instead of leaving the genetic continuance of the combination in the shoulders of only one descendant.

Hereditary modification on the other hand means the genetic differences between the animals; the diverseness and multiplicity of different genetic versions. Fostering the diverseness is important for the sake of the vitality and healthiness of the breed since decrease can lead in for instance the increase of hereditary diseases.

Since the beginning, I have put plenty of effort in my breeding activities; in studying the pedigrees and clarifying the backgrounds of the dogs. I have researched the polish dogs, their different lines and the possibilities for using them in my breeding efforts.
During the summers I have been travelling in Europe with my dogs, been in different shows. During summers I have been travelling in Europe with my dogs and participating in different shows. In Poland and many other countries I have participated in shows to gain more control in my breeding efforts in comparison to the other countries, especially the homeland of the breed.
While visiting Polish breeders I have discussed the dogs and the standard of the breed and seek to learn as much from them as possible.

My first PON, Anuska Zlaty Ranc, came to me Czechoslovakia and later on I have had from Poland Rola and Gorczyca z Wielgowa, Hajda z Wielgowa, Jegomosc z Wielgowa and in 1999 Wiklina z Wielgowa from the Wielgowa kennel. Furthermore I have imported Radosna Goralka z Banciarni and Figiel Hajko Nerita from Poland.
In summer 2005 I have imported two males from Poland, Vivat Flinkbein Rivendall together with Maija Bragge, and Cedr Moscic together with Christina Drake. In 2006 I got from Poland female Stokrotka Hajko Nerita and also Riposta Dla Flinkbein Kontekst, and in the summer 2007 the male, Talizman Flinkbein Kontekst.

For my female PONs I have used many foreign males from different lines to expand the genetic pool in Finland.
