First let's look at how many unbroken generations of specific major AKC titles exist for Golden Retrievers.
Consider the following pedigree. There are 2 sets of at least 3 unbroken generations of OTCHs here. 1)
Sneakers, her sire, and his sire. 2) Sneakers, her sire and his dam. The grandparent OTCHs on the dams side
(* through Jan. 2019)
Did the first Golden to earn a CH have an offspring with a CH? Then did that offspring
also have an offspring with a CH and so on until today? What about the UD or ***?
Sadly, there is no direct link between the first to hold an AKC title to the Goldens of
today except for the very recent agility and rally titles.
