Pedigree Submission Tutorial

Thank you for reading the Pedigree Submission Tutorial prior to submitting dogs to the Online Pedigree Databasetm! By ensuring that you understand the submission process, you are helping to create an accurate pedigree resource for all visitors to the PawVillage site.

Before you begin, you may find it helpful to gather all your records. Some PawVillage members find it useful to photocopy or print an extra copy of the pedigree that they are about to enter so that dogs can be crossed off if they are already in the database. This is particularly useful if you are interrupted and need to resume entering dogs from a pedigree at a later time.

Before proceeding to the New Dog Submission page, please search the database for dogs in the pedigree that you plan to enter to prevent entering duplicate records. If you find a record that you have additions or corrections for, do not re-enter the dog, instead submit the information using the Additions & Corrections system by clicking on the link at the bottom of that dog's home page. As the database is constantly being expanded by new submissions by PawVillage members, please repeat this step every time you log in to submit dogs to the database.

Pedigree Entry diagram 2

Remember to start with the oldest generation of dogs in the pedigree to ensure that sires and dams are entered before their offspring. If you enter a dog before it's parents, it will be necessary to enter the parents and then return to the dog's record to link to the sire and dam records.

If you are unsure about information such as color or date of birth, do not guess! By only entering information that you are certain of, you will help us to maintain the integrity and accuracy of the information in the Online Pedigree Databasetm.
