Registry/Pedigree Database Faq

What is the Pedigree Database?
The pedigree Database is a tool that allows users to add to, edit and search a database of dogs. All information and images that are in the database are added by users. The Database aims to make Chinese Crested information in the public domain more accessible to more people, documenting Cresteds and their breeders of the present and the past, providing a reference document and research tool for the breed.

This pedigree database is built on the belief that collaboration among users will improve the content over time, in much the same way that open-source software develops. Further, this real-time, collaborative model allows rapid updating.

The data added to the database can be organized, extracted and utilized in a variety of ways (such as dogs sorted by owner or breeder, champion galleries, statistics etc.) and makes a very flexible and effective way of storing and using information.

Who can add a dog or edit/add information to a dog?
Anyone can add a new dog or edit the information of a dog that is already in the database. This could be for example: - The breeder - The owner - Someone who has that dog in their dog's pedigree, has offspring from or other relatives of a dog - Someone who has access to catalogues, databases, pedigrees or other paperwork on earlier Cresteds and are trying to make this database as compete as possible

Information about dogs (name, title, birth data, breeder etc.) is not copyrighted, it is public information and can be made available to the general public. This is why we allow anyone to add or edit the information. Therefore, if you have verified, correct information please feel free to add any dogs missing from the database, and to correct errors and omissions.

Some people are trying to stop the publication of their dogs' information and pedigrees, but it is not their right to control how and where public information is presented. Works in the public domain may be used by anyone for any purpose.

Changes and additions to the site can be tracked through the change log.

For consistency, and to be able to sort by title we have created a titles list. Our title list is updated constantly, however if you still cannot find the title your dog holds, send us its abbreviation and description (when is this title given), so that we can add it.
