Here are 14 FAQs to help you get started using the database.

Frequently asked questions

 1.  What is the URL for the NEMDA Entlebucher Pedigree Database? 

EntlebucherDatabase.nemda.org

 2.  How do I sign up for an account?

There are several places you can click to sign up. Look for Sign up for free. The easiest one to find is in the dark-brown band at the top of the database page, to the far right.

The sign-up form describes two types of accounts: basic and owner-breeder. Both are free. The form has detailed instructions for signing up for each type of account. If you take your time and carefully read the instructions, the sign-up process should be straight-forward.

 3.  How do I add my name as the owner of a dog?

You must have an account, then you can edit the owner field and select your name from the drop-down menu. 

If you want your name to be publicly viewable, you must have an owner-breeder account with a public page (this type of account is free and so is the public page). Depending on how you set up your public page, visitors to the website will see your personal name and/or your kennel name. If you have a basic account, see FAQ 7 for how to change it to an owner-breeder account.

 4.  How do I add my name as the breeder of a dog?

You must have an account, then you can edit the breeder field and select your name from the drop-down menu.

If you want your name to be publicly viewable, you must have an owner-breeder account with a public page (this type of account is free and so is the public page). Depending on how you set up your public page, visitors to the website will see your personal name and/or your kennel name. If you have a basic account, see FAQ 7 for how to change it to an owner-breeder account.

 5.  Can you direct me to a few public pages so I can see what the possibilities are?

Go to the breeders page by clicking on breeders in the medium-brown menu bar near the top of the database page. All the breeders who are listed have public pages. Just click on one and it will take to the public page the breeder created using their owner-breeder account.

To see a couple of examples of public pages owners created, search for these two animals: Emmentaler and Twist on.

For each dog, you will see their owners listed by name and their names are in bold font. This means the owner has a public page. Click on the owner’s name and it will take you to the public page the owner created using their owner-breeder account.

6.  How do I edit my account?

When you are logged in, click on the person icon in the dark-brown band at the top of the database page, to the far right. It has a drop-down menu. Select Edit my account.

7.  How do I change my account type?

You edit your account. See FAQ 6.

  • If you have a basic account, the box I want a free owner-breeder account will be unchecked. Check the box, answer the questions following it, and click Save. When your changes have been approved by an admin, your account will convert to an owner-breeder account.
  • If you have an owner-breeder account, the box I want a free owner-breeder account will be checked. Uncheck the box and click Save. When your changes have been approved by an admin, your account will convert to a basic account.

 8.  How do I get a public page?

You edit your account. See FAQ 6.

The boxes I want a free owner-breeder account and I want a public page must be checked. Please take your time and carefully read the instructions. The form will prompt you if your request is incomplete, but the prompts may be confusing. If you are confused, please reread the instructions. If you are still confused, please contact us.

 9.  How do I view my public page?

To see what the public sees, log out if you are logged in. Search for one of your dogs. Your name (or kennel name) should be shown in bold as the owner and/or breeder. Click on your name (or kennel name), and you will be taken to your public page.

 10.  How do I edit my public page?
You edit your account. See FAQ 6.
 11.  When I edit a dog I do not own, why can't I change some of the information?

For privacy reasons, only the owner (or in some cases, the breeder) can edit those fields. If you have valuable information about a dog you cannot edit, please send us an email with details and we'll get back to you.

 12.  I see a lot of strange symbols. What do they mean?
