How do you verify information?

Using the Manage Dogs feature on the AKC website we are able to look up and verify information such as spelling, titles, AKC #, date of birth, color, and DNA #’s. Once in a very blue moon information is incorrect but unless provided with documentation by the owner or breeder, we have to accept that the information we see on the AKC’s database is correct.

We also use the OFA’s website, and not only to look up health clearances. We are able to verify parentage from this website as well. Other ways we verify parentage is through copies of certified or research pedigrees, and information provided in ABC magazines.

Can I add my Canadian dog?

Absolutely! However, please bear in mind we are unable to indpendently verify information on Canadian dogs like we are with many AKC dogs. When adding a CKC dog it is likely we will need proof of parentage and titles. Please see our list of acceptable forms of documatation.

Can I add dogs that are neither AKC or CKC?

Currently we have no plans to do so on a large scale, and proof of parentage and titles would be required. While we do have several Epagneul Breton's in the database, there is a database specific to the breed available online (http://www.epagneulbretonpedigree.com). In addition, an Australian database exists as well (http://ausbritts.com) which crosses over into many dogs that exist in ours.

Can I request a pedigree for an upcoming litter?

Yes, but it will count towards your 2 per month limit. There is a trial mating function in the database that allows you to look at a prospective breeding on your own as well.

I see an error in a dog's entry, how do I have it fixed?

Please send a simple change form with the dog's correct information. Occasionally we may ask for proof if we cannot verify the information ourselves, or it does not corrospond with information we have access to.

What is not accepted as proof of title, name or pedigree?

Why hasn't my entry shown up yet?

The database and website are updated as time allows. There is usually a backlog of data to verify and add to the database, and while this could easily be a full time job, it's not. Please understand that we work on this project on our free time. Thank you!
