Breeders Assistant® is an animal breeding and pedigree software product for Windows computers. It produces very high quality pedigree certificates and stores all your breeding records in your own private pedigree database. Breeders Assistant is an established product in use by thousands of customers worldwide.
Breeders Assistant (BA) is supplied in several versions carefully tailored for the specific needs of breeders of pedigree cats, dogs, and many other species. E.g. the cat version knows about cat breeds, breed numbers, GCCF GEMS codes and FIFe codes, can print GCCF compliant mating certificates, sales agreements, and help you manage your cattery records. Likewise Breeders Assistant for Dogs knows about virtually all well known dog breeds and colors as recognized by leading dog registries.
Are You a Mac User? Breeders Assistant is designed for Windows. But you can run it on a Mac if you have a Windows emulator such as 'Parallels' or similar. If you need a native Mac product then consider PedPro instead. The latest version supports direct import of pedigree data from Breeders Assistant.
BA's printed pedigrees can include photos, watermarks (with inbuilt fading), calligraphic text, decorative artwork for borders and corners, your choice of fields, and many other features. You can customize all the colors, boxes & fonts etc. You can save pedigrees as image (JPEG) files, print trial mating pedigrees, litter pedigrees, reverse pedigrees, circular pedigrees, and text pedigrees (for email).
