Animal entries

Due to the fact that the Silken Windsprite / Longhaired Whippet breed is not yet an internationally recognised dog breed, the allowed animal entries are explicitly regulated as follows:

In principle, all entries must be registered with a club; either by their birth certificate and full pedigree or by special registration after phenotyping. In the latter case the predecessors of the dog in question may only be entered if their existence can be proven by records of a recognised club. The names of the clubs have to be listed with the particular dog entries; ideally, registration numbers should also be filled in.

Exceptions to this are ancient ancestors of the breed that may be necessary to add for reasons of completing pedigrees and calculation of inbreeding coefficients. These dogs have to be marked as 'Generation 0 (F0)' or 'Predecessor of Generation 0 (F0)'.

Another exception are crosses with Whippets which may be entered for the same reasons and, again, when they are explicitly marked as 'Generation 0 (F0)' or 'Predecessor of Generation 0 (F0)'. Such entries may only contain name, date of birth and land of birth and - if applicable - a link to the according entry on the Whippet Breed Archive. Moreover Whippet entries as predecessors of a Silken Windsprite / Longhaired Whippet may only go back five generations.

Pedigree analysis

We offer an extensive pedigree analysis page for each animal stored in the TBA database. This analysis contains the inbreeding coefficient (Wright's formula), ancestor loss, the partial inbreeding coefficient, the blood quota and more.

Please note: The pedigree analysis is based on the information in the database and is only accurate to that extent.

You can find a link to the pedigree analysis page on each animal's detail page and on the testmating page.

The pedigree analysis page calculates the inbreeding coefficient, ancestor loss, blood quota and the partical inbreeding coefficient (only up to the 5th generation) for a particular animal or testmating.

For details on the calculations study the tooltip information on the pedigree analysis page.
