By a part of the research

Below are some of our key research areas:

Record-Keeping Tools

Breeders have access to digital tools for efficient record-keeping, documenting every aspect of the breeding process from artificial insemination or natural mating to the birth of puppies and beyond. This ensures compliance with regulatory requirements and enables breeders to maintain up-to-date records easily.

Task Management and Notifications:

The platform provides breeders with task management features and notifications for completing necessary tasks such as policy updates and checklist items. Breeders can track the completion of tasks and receive reminders to ensure compliance.

Accountacy for Contracts and Invoices:

Breeders can easily compile data for contracts and invoices within the platform, including microchip numbers, date of birth, genetic information, registrations, sales details, and more. This comprehensive data collation enables efficient management of breeding transactions and ensures traceability of puppies and dogs sold.

Breeder Score

Breeders receive an overall breeder score based on the completeness and accuracy of their record-keeping and paperwork. This score serves as a benchmark for assessing compliance with regulatory standards and incentivises breeders to maintain high standards.

Genetic Testing and AI Matching

Utilise AI to match studs with bitches through advanced genetic testing and data analysis, ensuring optimal breeding outcomes. Implemention of AI to automate and streamline contract creation and management.

Document Standardisation

The Digital PawPrint ensures standardised document formats and organisation, facilitating consistency and clarity in record-keeping across breeders. This simplifies inspections for local enforcement officers and promotes uniformity in regulatory compliance.

Digitalising breeding
