Stickdog V 2.2.5293 Pedigree Software Official Release

Free 30 Day Trial Period

$89.00 after trial ends

Stick Dog Pedigree Software saves the breeder time and supports record keeping. This new software is popular among breeders because it incorporates and supports collecting heritable kinds of information that is needed to breed the better dogs. This full feature software collects and stores the names, titles and certifications of each ancestor. It also expands to the Stick Dog and Symbols pedigrees which makes the data collected usable to view and print in any of three different kinds of pedigrees (Traditional, Stick Dog and Symbols).

Once you have entered information about each ancestor, the software will automatically generate two other pedigrees (Stick Dog and Symbols pedigree). Both are tools for advanced pedigree analysis. One of the advanced features allows the user to see the strengths and weaknesses of each ancestor. With this kind of information, breeders can begin to breed by direction rather than by chance.

Stick Dog Features

  • Easy - Just fill in the dog’s name, titles and certifications
  • Print - Click to print or Save your work
  • Stores Your Data - Stickdog software remembers the details of dogs previously entered. E.g. when creating a new pedigree if the Sire/Dam is one you've added before you can just select his/her name from a list and the program will automatically pull in all their ancestors as far back as you've previously entered.
  • Customize - Change fonts, colors, number of ancestor generations
  • Import/Export - Transfer data in and out of the program. Allows breeders to exchange coded pedigrees
  • Data Fields - Add new data, information and other details about each dogs (AKC registration #, breeder, owners, etc.).
