Default Anybody ever use the pedigree data base for dogs?

Ok members we have in Iceland a great Data Base all my dogs are listed, it does NOT mean a dog is not good if not on it. I mean come on it is just a free data base, you can look up pedigrees of breeds, like parents of your dogs, photos sometimes. Some are truly horrible of Shepherds on it, but you find the breed, then do your research.

I have all my dogs on and any I purchase are on, my kennel is also listed on it, so I know alot about this place being on it for years. You can ask questions, but hint hint, you might get a better detailed answer right on dog forum.

I mean come on I am 70 yrs old, been there, done that, had the horse business some thirty years won huge awards, so not going to run around with dogs biting, just not my thing. Gino does enough of that on a sleeve, it is not fun at all.

type in german shepherds Amanda and look up the parents of your dog since it came from Texas, it might be on there, alot are not, it does not mean your dog is not good at all. That is a total pharse to believe a top dog is listed on this data base, Gino Breeders big ones have none listed on it, means nothing but helps us look up alot of junk at times.

Hey I just looked at your dogs parents, you have a Kirtchental dog Amanda, your Shepherd is well bred. Hang onto him, he should be used for stud if his hips and elbows are ok, one day when you can do testing on him, now I know it is tough for you, but he is well bred dog for you to hang onto. I must run, I have other things to do, I am so busy now, but will return. Get to bed honey. The dad to your dog is almost impossible to get a dog from that huge kennel, I was on their links, but cannot get them to sell as they do not breed much at all, they herd shep with their dogs, it is all business, not for money only in sheep etc. Look up the kennel of your dogs sire, it is huge kennel of dedicated owners.

I have to respectfully disagree on this subject.

I've found many mistakes in the free online data bases in my own breed. The pedigrees can be entered by anyone and can be inacurate or incomplete! A few breeders of my acquaintance have found pedigrees of dogs they'd bred that were completely innacurate.

As a result; I would never recommend breeding a dog based on a pedigree in a free database without checking with the breeder. In fact I wouldn't recommend breeding any dog I hadn't seen in person and gone over with my own hands.

There's no argument whatsoever that a pedigree is an important tool when planning a breeding. But a breeding shouldn't ever be planned based on pedigree alone. Especially by a novice who doesn't have a clue of how to judge temperament, conformation, or natural ability, and whose dog was most likely purchased as pet quality!

Is not that I stated Carol that it is only to look up pedigrees of their breeds. I told Gideon that her dog is well bred to hang onto him during her struggling day now, not to rid of him as he is well bred. I said nothing about breeding him or to anybody but a data base only as good as one puts info into it.

It was not even a big deal to me, but a person made it so big that a dog I did not import was not even on it, like Geesss do not buy a dog or pup not on the data base???? It is no big deal if some great dogs are not on and they are not, many good dogs the Breeders of them could care less about this pedigree base.

It is mainly used for alot of gossip also. I am not a fan of it but brought to my attention by a person like it is a huge deal a dog is not entered on it. Well, now some know like I feel, no big deal at all and yes, mistakes are most likely on it, I rarely use it because I do not care to be bothered by it. Trash talk, bumber dogs, etc.
