With free updates you only buy K9-Ped once.
K9-Ped is pedigree research software. It is intended for personal or "hobby" use. It does not contain the features required for the business of managing a kennel or the business of breeding animals. Some pedigree programs are intended for business use only and specifically exclude your use of any consumer protection laws and have a "no return" policy. Make sure you read the Terms and Conditions on the web site AND in the user manual before you purchase.

Did you wait five years for the release of the
"Millennium" product only to be disappointed? In my opinion,
based on the sales literature, I didn't see many features that indicate
the new version is little more than a windows interface to a fifteen
year old DOS program with the same old limitations imposed by the DOS
style database files.
K9-Ped uses a true database engine and advanced matrix
mathematics for COI calculations. There are no set limits on the
number of data records or the number of different titles. There
is no need to clear descendant data since K9-Ped recalculates multiple
COI values in a small fraction of a second every time you view a
dog. On most systems K9-Ped will recalculate the 4, 6, 8 and 10
generation COI values at approximately 1,000 dogs per minute.
In the past, many users have switched to K9-Ped to get
away from the 40 character name & 52 different title limitation and
the VERY SLOW C.O.I. calculations. K9-Ped is offering a limited
time 40% off upgrade program for users disappointed with the lack of
real windows database features in the "Millennium" product. Click here for details.
K9-Ped directly imports CompuPedTM

If you are building a comprehensive breed database by combining multiple databases you will appreciate the data cleaning features of K9-Ped. Potential duplicate entries, including those with similar names or identical registration numbers, are easily identified. Detection of dogs with incorrect sex and dogs listed as both sire and dam is a standard feature. K9-Ped will generate a list of dogs younger than their progeny and or, based on user supplied criteria, dogs too young to have produced their progeny.
K9-Ped will even change the case of the dog's name to eliminate the unsightly pedigrees produced when names are all upper case.
Search or sort on any data field. Show all of the dogs owned or bred by an individual linked to the other owners and breeders of the same dogs. Show the percentage of blood and Coefficient of Inbreeding for every dog in a 30 generation pedigree, including how many times each dog appears in each generation by sire and dam side. Locate "holes" in pedigrees and produce reports with selected fields and criteria.
Data input is fast and easy with "Look & Load" for existing names and six generation (dog plus five) input from a single screen.
Output formats include printing conventional "pretty" pedigrees or jpg & gif files with the same format. Produce html and text pedigrees with a couple of mouse clicks.
The price is $99.00 U.S. with no charge for any extra features. If you currently are using another pedigree program, have a large database and are interested in sharing your data and being the correction /addition contact for a web based breed database, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Special pricing is available to users of other programs willing to share good quality, large databases.
Database conversions are available. Please contact email@example.com for availability and pricing.
Little or no charge for program updates
K9-Ped will not have the outrageous upgrade prices common with other
pedigree programs. The program will continue to improve gradually
over time with updates posted on this site. Any charge will be
on a K9-Ped offering a very major optional upgrade and the cost will be
modest. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
for details. To purchase the program using a secure payment
with Visa or Master Charge click on the PayPal icon located on the
K9-Ped "about" page. (Requires demo download and install).

The Breeder's Standard & Pedwin Data Conversion Program
With Version 6.4a, this program is no longer required to convert TBSTM and CompuPedTM files to an intermediate format. Conversion is now a simple single step process. You can even import your own CompuPedTM or TBSTM data into the demo version.
K9-Ped supports data sharing between all programs. For those who still want to convert BXF(tm) files to standard formats you can still download the old conversion program.
