Question Question about breeding

What is the difference between Clean Heritage breeding and Clean Line breeding?
I have heard that Clean Heritage breeding simple meant that there was no repeat dame or sire within 5 generations.

Where as Clean Line breeding is no repeat dame or sire in the entire known pedigree. (Unlike Clean Heritage breeding, Clean Line breeding goes past 5 generations).

Is this correct?


I do understand the differences between inbreeding, inline breeding, outcrossing breeding. Just wondering about the above. Thanks

I'm sure one of the breeders here will chime in but to this lay person it seems like with that definition, clean line breeding would be pretty difficult (near impossible) with some breeds.
