FAQ

We will in the following try to answer some of the questions, which you might have or which might occur whilst using the database –

Security:
– why can I not right click; this is a part of our overall security system, and which cannot be disabled

Indexes:

There are 2 forms of indexes – the top drop down index and the index on your right –
The top index, when more subjects have been added, it will show a drop down form, mouse over and click on the subject you wish to view – otherwise, just click, and you will be taken to the selected area.
The index on your right, here you can select from either the most recent entries or through the listed sections a little further down on your right … if you select from the most recent entries, you can scroll through the entered papers at the button of the site – if you select through the listed sections, you will come to a page, which will show you all the papers entered under that specific section, just click on the article/paper you wish to view ….

Forms:

the forms you just fill out and send, and you will get a confirmation when having done this – which mean that the form has been sent to the Admin, who will view the form and attend to it as quickly as possible.

Database:

We have tried very hard to set up the database in an easy accessable form – still some of the codes used in some of the pages, might rise some questions – like in the “blood” page …..

Blood page:

– G = generation
– 1 to 13 = the amount of generations
– numbers shown under each generation, indicate where the specific dog is placed within the ancestor group, and how many times within that generation –
   you may also see a dog mentioned as “2/6” – this mean that this ancestor is represented 2 times through the sire site and 6 times through the dam site
– cells in pink = that more than 1 ancestor of that specific name is a part of the genetic built up of the dog you are looking at.
– heritage = the transfer of heritage in % from each individual ancestor over a 13 generations ancestor group … this heritage % can be used to make an
   estimated risk factor of various health issues represented by the ancestor group of the dog you are looking at.
– Lifespan, will tell you how long the individual dog has lived …

Pedigree 4:

This is an ordinary 4 generation pedigree, if you mouse over “view siblings” then click – a new site will open in a new window, here you will be able to view the dogs siblings and obtained information on these siblings.

You will also find maternal lineage – so far we have narrowed the amount of primary dams down to 16, but there are far more – unfortunately we have not yet been able to follow all the lines back to the upstart of the breed, and due to lost pedigree information or merely lacking sufficient pedigree information. If a Dam is shown in highlighted, that means that we have been able to identify this Dam line amongst some of the most primary dam lines …

You will also find the paternal lineage further down this page. We have not set up groups for these sires, as there so far have been found a very few and back to the founding of the breed.

Pedigree 8:

This form of pedigree looks more “complicated” but it’s actually not. The form this pedigree has been set up in, is equal to those used within science papers – here you can select what you may be looking for within the ancestor group – mouse over and the names comes up, but also this you can select to be a preference ….

COI calculation problems:

This can be due to:

– lack of sufficient amount of dogs to generate a calculation
– dogs where AI breeding’s have taken place – which mean that the dog may be died 10 or more years before the breeding has taken place = to several generations, and which may reduced the calculated COI to 0 for too many generations
– incorrect time of birth of one or more ancestors

IF you should encounter either of the above problems, please let us know – and use Kinship as an alternative.
