Stickdog Software - Beta Testing

This exciting new software is in the Beta Test stage of development and a test group has been identified. The developers are still open to adding a few more interested breeders. A few openings remain for breeders willing to carry out steps 1-5below. Interested? Send your Post Office mailing address, email address, phone number and breed. Use “beta test” in the subject field.

To see or use the instruction manual go to the website. Download it or save it on your computer. Here are the 6 things asked of the Beta test group: 1. Enter a few pedigrees. 2. Save your work, then go back and see if you can retrieve your work. 3. Enter a traditional pedigree (names and titles) then update it in the Stick dog pedigree format and color code each stick figure (seven structural parts). 4. Code a Symbols pedigree for health and add litter mates for the ancestors. 5. Enter dog related data. The software has many practical uses. It automatically generates three pedigrees (Traditional pedigree with names, titles and certifications; the Stick Dog Color Chart pedigree for traits of conformation and Symbols pedigree for healthy and other traits). All three are discussed in the book, “Breeding Dogs to win”
