Track All Your Animals Easily
As a breeder you care about the health and wellbeing of your breeding stock and you know its important to store and manage the information about them.
Our products help you to keep it all together in one place - starting with the key details like name, date of birth, sire and dam, breed, microchip data and so on. Using this information you can then easily print those essential pedigree papers - the certificates.
Compared to the traditional method of hand writing certificates it helps you in other ways too. You can calculate inbreeding easily, keep health records for your breeding stock, and so on.
Build Your Database
Building pedigrees by hand is a very time consuming process as anyone who has done it will know. Frequently you find yourself copying out the same ancestors, often multiple times within the same certificate. Whether you've done it in longhand or with software such as Excel or Word to create a template or chart, you face the same fundamental problem of having to repeat the same information over and over again.
With our products once you have entered the details of any given animal you don't have to do it ever again. No matter how many times it recurs as an ancestor in other pedigrees.
Improve Your Breeding Results
As a responsible breeder not only do you want to breed healthy animals but you want to improve your breeding lines e.g. to improve conformity to breed standards. Our products help you understand the relationship between sire and dam, to know how they are related through their pedigrees.
The software calculates the inbreeding for any animal or prospective mating in your database using Wright's method. It will highlight repeat and common ancestors instantly. So you can see at a glance which ancestors are giving rise to inbreeding, and which ancestors are having the greatest influence. With our Breeders Assistant program you can also view the %blood influence of ancestors in any mating.
Take Pride in Your Pedigrees
The kind of paperwork you will be proud to give your customers. You want them to be impressed.
A certificate is an important document and should look professional.
Our products include the means to customize the layouts in many ways to give them your own personal touch. For example you can include a photo or watermark image background. You can have Champions in red, include 4, 5 or even 6 generations of ancestors, choose to display the inbreeding coefficient, change colors, borders, adjust fonts and so on.
You can even include special effects such as wonderful calligraphic text in the 'copperplate' styles of Breeders Assistant.
Breeders Assistant is our most comprehensive product for cat and dog breeders. Whilst it's designed for Windows computers you can also run it on a Mac if you have 'Parallels' or similar.

It is available in several editions. Whilst many customers find the Personal edition does everything they need, there is also a Professional edition which includes higher database capacity and advanced genetics such as coat color prediction.
Another aspect of this product is that it comes it different versions that have been tailored to the differing needs of cats, dogs, rabbits, rats, horses, livestock and other animals. There is also a Generic version suited for any other species.
