Using the Database and Acknowledgements

Why use the database?
Our goal in producing this database is to provide an additional tool for breeders to make informed breeding decisions and for "pet" owners to be able to research Leonberger pedigrees back to the mid 1850s. We would also like to encourage you to visit The Leonberger Database where you will find additional photos and hip scores on older dogs that may not be found here. The pedigree and health data that is printed here, has been gathered through public domain sources, or given directly to this project with permission for use in the database. Two programs were used in the collection of data: Breedmate's Pedigree Explorer and Kynoinfo.

If you find corrections that need to be made, please use the form for corrections. If you have new information to add, or new entries for Leonbergers who are not yet listed in the database, please use the area of the form for new submissions/additions. Corrections and submissions/additions can only be made by the owner or the breeder of the dog. If you notice an error, please notify the owner or breeder of the dog. The information made available from this database is "As is," and the Database team makes no warranty, express or implied, or assumes any legal liability or responsibility for the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any such information. The Database team shall not be liable for any damages whatsoever that may arise out of the use of this database.

Using the database search feature:
The database can be searched by a name or a partial name of a dog, kennel, owner, breeder, country, Death/Health and also by registration number, or identification number (tattoo or microchip number). If you do not get a result from one search, try another. If you are having trouble finding a dog using the entire name in the search, try a partial name. If you want to find a dog that has accent marks or diacritical's (ä â æ ÿ ø ñ and others) listed in the name, but you don't know how to type them in, search for the portion of the name that doesn't have the diacritical, or copy and paste the name into the search field. If you are copy and pasting, make sure there is not an empty space in the search field before the name or number. If you need additional help in using the database, please e-mail and try to explain in English or German what problems you are having.
