Paw Print Pedigrees: All About the Dog Page

Just as with your breeder page in Paw Print Pedigrees, the publicly accessible database of canine test results performed at Paw Print Genetics, your dog page(s) allow you to securely display your dog’s test results. It also lets you to highlight everything about your dog.

While your breeder page allows you to display overview information about your kennel or breeding goals, as well as your website, contact info and dogs, each specific dog page lets you go more in depth about each individual dog.

The dog page starts with the dog’s name and gives you the option of uploading a photo. If your dog is panel tested (meaning it has received all of the known mutations for the breed offered by Paw Print Genetics), a blue panel with a trophy denoting the accomplishment will appear between the name and photo.

Down the left side of the page, the dog’s personal information is listed: call name, registered name, its Paw Print Genetics laboratory number, its registration number, breed, sex, date of birth, microchip number and tattoo identifier.

In the middle of the page appears your name (or the name of the person who tested the dog). If you created a breeder page, your name will link to it. Under your name, you can write a profile about your dog – such things as its size and weight, conformation, coat or temperament…really, anything you want the world to know about your dog!

You have the option of displaying a button that will securely show the dog’s official Canine Genetic Health Certificate.

You also have the option of linking to accomplishments, scores and tests found on other websites. The links could include your website, the dog’s pedigree, points standing in competition or placement at events. You can even link to other health clearances such as hip, eye or elbow scores.

Your dog’s test results are displayed below all of this information in the middle of the page. The diseases that your dog received screening for are listed, as are the dog’s genotype (WT, wild type (normal) or M, mutant), Interpretation (Normal, Carrier, Affected) and the date the test(s) were performed.

Our goal with Paw Print Pedigrees is to give our clients a free platform to promote their breeding program and dogs in a simple, easy-to-use format. Just as Paw Print Genetics is your one-stop genetic-screening laboratory, Paw Print Pedigrees is a place to showcase your kennel and dogs, and to find like-minded, conscientious breeders who care about the genetic health of their dogs!

We believe we’ve accomplished just that with Paw Print Pedigrees.
