Breeding bad bite

I have a question ....

 

I have never bred a dog ... and don't plan on breeding. If I were going to I wouldn't care about size or color. I would base my breeding on working ability.

 

Someone once told me that I couldn't breed my LGD because she had an under-bite. - (This LGD is spayed so that's not an issue). I asked her why not breed a bad bite if the dog can eat and drink correctly !!?? Her only reply had something to do with breed standards ...

 

So ..... what does everyone think about bad bites in dogs ... what is the practical reason why someone should not breed a dog with a bad bite ??

 

Thanks,

Thank you .. that makes perfect sense.

Practical? Because it doesn't work properly when off. Not about working as in sheep but working as in how the mouth functions and how a bad bite effects other aspects as well. Here's a link to an article (shhh...an ACK breed) but I think it is pretty well done.
