I'm not sure I want to see the COD.... but it'd be nice if people started putting the actual date of death in so the longevity part would be visible on some of these pedigrees.

We all used to put COD in honorifics.

And yes we are all getting old... I looked at change history on my first golden, and it was in 2009 that I took her COD out of honorifics and put it in COD... hasn't been around that long.(as I am pretty compulsive with k9 data). And as I said earlier, not all dogs that died young died of cancer... There are a number of big producing stud dogs in the Northeast who died relatively young (and their owners are respected) and there is no COD.

Yes I wish it was more used...honestly I wish health issues were more openly discussed.

I must say I have been impressed when looking at the flat coat pedigree database though. They have the opportunity to enter tons more information about the dogs and many do...anything from structural strengths and weaknesses to temperament and a list of health problems with dates, etc. Very cool. Would love to see that with goldens too.

For Allergies!! That would be SOO cool. These are the things breeder are shooting in the dark about. You can be informed, but only to a certain point, when breeders in the past were not in the habit of documenting even significant things like COD.... (still common now)

I thought it was 4 years since the COD was on k9data, but I must have been thinking of the COD's being in the honorifics. I spent a long time looking at k9data, before I decided on my sammy. His pedigree is pretty open as far as COD's and eye issues, but is also filled with dogs from breeders who are still around, and are easy to email and ask questions about a specific dog. Generally I don't think a reputable breeder would lie to someone asking specifically about a dog, even if they didn't feel comfortable putting that information out on k9data (for whatever reason I don't understand, I guess reputation...) That is generally my technique at least with dogs I am personally invested in...Sometimes that is much easier said than done, with a lot of breeders retiring, or don't have their contact information available anymore.

I agree with that... I don't put anything past anyone given some things I've been told and things I've seen, "reputable" or not. And I've only been "in dogs" for 2 years!

K9Data is operated on a completely volunteer basis (although they allow donations) and being on the K9data email list, you hear just how many headaches they have to deal with since people are allowed to enter their own data. In regards to the difference between the Flat Coat database and K9Data.....there are SOOOO many more Goldens than Flat-Coats that just keeping track of the data that K9Data does is a larger task than keeping track of more data per dog for Flat-Coats.

If you are interested in seeing a change in K9Data, join the email list or email Amy with your suggestions...she is very open to feasible changes that will improve the database.

It is a big big data-base, which has its benefits, verses a small database with more information. Although, I don't think it would be too much of a stretch to add a spot for a PU diagnoses, as of right now I find it difficult to find any information about an eye clearance failure vs. a hip/elbow failure. Often that eye clearance failure happens later in the dogs life, and its not that often to find it documented in an online database. I'll probably send an email, but I'm sure someone has already brought that up.
