Pedigree Publisher (PedPub) is a desktop pedigree program that runs on Windows PCs with data stored on your PC. Here are some of the key features:
- Perfect for individual breeders, researchers or hobbyists.
- Easy to back up and share data. Easy to import or export in common formats like CSV or Excel.
- There is no limit to the number of breed databases.
- Users can create, delete, and modify tables so there is no limit on what you can store in your database.
- Comes with form files for dogs, cats, horses, cattle and can be fully user customised for any breed.
- Users can create, copy, delete or modify forms and include logos, photos, watermarks so its easy to create custom forms like certificates.
- Advanced forms like the Pedigree Chart (up to 50 generations), circular pedigrees and 7 or 8 gen pedigrees.
- Powerful interactive merge facility for combining databases.
- Data Doctor feature with extensive tests to help you keep your data accurate.
Pedigree Cloud (PedCloud) is a desktop pedigree program that runs on Windows PCs with data stored in the cloud. Key features:
- Perfect for groups such as breed clubs, registries, genetic researchers working on common data.
- Data is stored either on your own MySQL database (typically these are provided by your web hosting company) or hosted by us.
- Multiple users can connect to the same MySQL database at the same time so when one user makes a change, all the other users connected to that database will see that change.
- If you use your own MySQL database you have complete control, privacy and security.
- Use MySQL remote access to limit what IP addresses can access for extra security.
- Works well with Pedigree Point since all updates are immediately visible to PedPoint users and there is no need to publish which is an advantage for large databases.
- It does everything that PedPub does and more, so as well as having the option of storing your database(s) in a desktop file on your computer, like PedPub does, you can also connect to a MySQL database.
PedPoint installs on your website and allows visitors to your website to search a database and view pedigree reports. Features as follows:
- Useful for any person or group who wants to provide web based access to search and report on data.
- PedPoint works with either PedPub or PedCloud. With PedPub you have to manually publish to PedPoint. With PedCloud it hooks into the same database as PedCloud so there is no need to publish which means that anyone using the website sees the changes you make instantly.
- Pedigree Point is free of charge if used for private purposes such as breed clubs and an inexpensive one-off cost even for commercial sites. We can also optionally assist with installation or repairs and updates.
- PedPoint is based on PHP and MySQL, supports millions of records and offers powerful search and reporting, e.g pedigrees, reverse pedigree, sibling, breeding and vertical pedigrees.
- You get the source code so there is no limit to the changes you can make to meet your needs.
- Can include photos in the pedigrees and optional colored marks to indicate genetic or oher conditions.

Julie Brown - BTW I've been using this program for probably 10 years now...originally it was purchased to save handwriting out those certificates but it has led to a real passion and interest in breed health, history, etc. Being able to run such thorough analysis, COI etc on dogs has put a whole new dimension and perspective on breeding. I cannot thank you enough for this program. It's proven to be such a valuable tool and the information I've acquired has helped a lot of people, and dogs.
Helen Scott - Yorkshire TerriersI do love your program. Have tried them all including [names deleted] etc. Breedmate is fast, intuitive, stable, flexible, awesome capabilities, enables detail and a plethora of data. Merge Database is supurb. Have surprised myself in being successful in modifying forms and text reports but my ability in that area is somewhat limited.
Gillian Bartlett - www.teraustralis.com Breedmate is most accurate, as the program makes it hard to misspell the a dog's name by mistyping (it asks if you want to add a new entry when it is spelt differently, thus alerting you to a variation in the name). It can be used to plan litters by checking the inbreeding co-efficients, duplicated ancestors, colours of coats in the ancestors - so much information to be seen.
Here are our answers to some actual questions from users.
- Hello I found your products on line and they appear to be the most complete I have seen. True
- Is the program purchased outright or is there an additional monthly fee? The program is purchased out right – it’s yours forever. There are no monthly fees. It comes with one year of free support including free upgrades. Upgrades will always be cheap - since 2002, users could upgrade for just US$20.
- Is all data and program stored on my computer or in the cloud? All the data and program is stored on your computer. Nothing is stored in the cloud. In fact all data for each breed is in one convenient file so you could have Boxers.db, Poodles.db, MyHorses.db so they are easy to make backups by just copying the files to a USB etc. BTW there is no limit on the number of breed databases.
- My horses have multiple registration numbers and other IDs can you modify the files for these added requirements? No problems adding any number of fields to any table in each database. All databases and forms are fully customisable.
- Can a picture(s) be added to each entry? A picture can be added to each entry. Some forms are designed to show photos usually just for the first two generations due to fitting them in but all forms can be modified to include photos.
- Is there a limit to the number of animals? We use a popular open source database called SQLite which has huge limits, certainly greater than 4 billion records.
- Is the program downloaded after purchase? If so what if you change computers? After purchase we send you an email with download instructions. Within your support period you can download the installer an unlimited number of times. You can also save each installer and use it an unlimited number of times.You can install on up to three computers at the same time that you are the main user of. You can reinstall on replacement computers an unlimited number of times.
- At this point on your production which program do you recommend for my use and what are the benefits of combining your programs? At this point we always recommend Pedigree Publisher rather than Pedigree Explorer. It is our newest program and is where all development will occur going forward. There is no advantage to having both programs.
- I will have many 100's of hours of data entry and want to make sure this will last the rest of my life! LOL All of our programs allow exporting or importing from Excel, Access, CSV and many other formats so you will never lose your data.
