Pedigree Database Online

The PDO database is especially developed for breed clubs and breeders to register animals and health information, show pedigrees and calculate COI and AVK. With this information it offers the possibility for making well informed breeding decisions to improve your breed.


Animal characteristics, pedigrees, pictures, documents, litters, litter registrations, breeders, owners, health-information, show en other results can be entered in the database. With this data you can make trial-matings, analyze pedigrees, calculate real time (up to) 10 generation inbreeding-coefficients and ancestor loss coefficients, and search for common ancestors. You can download pedigrees and certificates in a PDF format. The database was originally setup for dogs but is now also used for other species like cats, hamsters, hedgehogs, pigs, cattle and rats.

It's user friendly

Users and administrators can search for animals in alphabetical order or by specific characteristics. Breeders can be found in an alphabetical list, by area or even on a map. Animals can be easily added or edited from within the pedigrees. Depending on the settings users can make changes but these changes will only be publicly visible after approval by an administrator.
Users can alter their own account information.

No installation needed

You can start working in the database without installation-procedures. Technical knowledge is not required. We will host your database as a sub domain of There are automated daily backups and we will periodically update the software to the latest version. You can make adjustments in the page-layout like changing colors and banners. You can also add custom information fields and switch on or off features like show results, litters, breeding animals and breeders. Help with the setup is included. If you have requests for extra features or changes we will try to add this if we think this is useful for all databases.
If you are interested we can setup a free one month trial database so you can try before you decide.


You can make unlimited users and specify access to the various possibilities for different user groups. That way you can make your database completely open or only available for registered users and allow your users to make changes to the animals. You can make custom information fields for breed specific issues like special health concerns, diseases or other information. Users can be assigned to (custom) user groups. You can set for each user group who can see, edit or approve information fields (per field) and set who can see or edit show results, breeders, litters and breeding animals. Of course we will help you with this setup.
The database is provided in English but can be supplied with 3 languages if you make the translations yourself.

Importing and exporting data:

The data from the database can be imported or exported in CSV-format to use in excel or other common databases. There are automated daily backups and you can make manual backups in mysql format you can use in other databases.
