Wikipedia and k9data are both quite trustworthy, as long as you remember that they're user contributed. Since both keep a change history, you can see acts of vandalism and undo them. If entries become contentious (like some of the HVB "creme" dogs), they can be locked.

It seems the owner of this site likes to remove information from other breeders. I suggest as it has happened to use again today, that all breeders make or have made your own "K-9 data information page on your web site. This way they cannot block your dog’s information, if they do not like a breeder they block them so you cannot make updates or changes. It is a way for them to keep the competition out of the picture. I suggest other breeders having the same problem seek each other out for a class action or seek your own legal advice.

Can you provide an example on k9data of a dog that has been wrongly in your opinion locked?

That got a laugh from me this morning... the admin of K9data have no interest in blocking competition- the interest is in protecting the value of the database. If your info was changed/your dog locked, it is because you posted an untruth based on the truth of the OFA or AKC databases....

Yes, how dare someone make an amazing and free tool available to anyone (as in thousands of users) and then limit the content by removing inaccurate and unverifiable information. THE TRAVESTY!

Stop posting incorrect or unverifiable information and you won’t have a problem. If you read your user agreement when you registered, you would know the site can refuse read/write access for any reason.

You are absolutely correct, if you don’t like this tool for which you pay nothing and which owes you nothing, go create your own.

I didn’t know anyone could edit any dog. I wouldn’t dream of touching any dogs but my own!

Dear Firedog. (With 1 post.)
I would be very interested to hear your examples of when this happened. (Today?...) It almost sounds like you have had your information "challenged" and changed/corrected for some reason. If the information was not accurate... I would think you would be happy to have it correct! If something was changed incorrectly why wouldn't you contact k9 data? PS Welcome to the forum!

Hmmmm. Complaining about a FREE database that is populated by the users using (basically) data that is in the public domain. Sorry; I believe we have a troll.

While I think the open database is a great tool, always consult with the breeder of the golden for FULL information. I have had incorrect changes made to our dogs. A database is only as good as the information put in it.
