Stud dog register on CD
With the approval of the German Shepherd Dog Federation a Stud dog register for distribution on a CD is under development by Keith Newnham. Considerable progress has been made in preparing and formatting the data . The end result will be an electronic copy of the register that can be viewed through your computer browser, such as Internet Explorer, in much the same way as you would access information on the Internet, without having to access the Internet.
The format of the register will be in two distinct parts. The first containing facts and figures based upon Federation records. See later for details. The second an advertising view aimed at promoting, through owner / breeder supplied words and pictures, current stud dogs and kennel offerings.
A fee of R200 per stud dog and advertising material has been agreed. For this you will be entitled to have up to three pictures of each dog, a picture of your kennels or kennel logo, owner/ breeder supplied wording that promote the dog(s), kennel, breeder and personal history, and any contact details that you wish to publish.
In addition to any wording provided, information from the Federation database including, breed survey remarks, show grading, working titles, hip grading and total progeny will be added to the data page for the dog(s).
There are no costs incurred by owner / breeders for publication of data obtained from the federation database, and other than the actual cost of the CD’s, all monies raised will be for the benefit of the Federation.
Used either on its own or in conjunction with the RSA bloodlines charts the CD will offer bother breeder and potential owner a wealth of information not previously readily available.
Subject to responses Keith receives he aims to have version 1 available for sale at the National Breed Show, with a new release being published biannually.
Should you wish to take part in this exciting venture Keith is requesting that interesting parties him have the following by no later than 12th September 2005.
The Northern Gauteng Province, under whose auspice this initiative is being run, will invoice you.
Requested information can be sent to Keith by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively you can send pictures and other documentation to PO Box 1600 PINEGOWRIE 2123. But please take into account possibly delays in our postal service.
If you have any questions you can contact Keith on 082 785 2989, or 011 781 3640 (after 18:00)
