To start, select which of your dog's you'd like to compare
A list of dogs will automatically populate. You will be able to compare your selected dog with dogs of the opposite sex for health conditions, traits, and other parameters (such as distance, if a kennel address was provided).
Columns can also be sorted by clicking on the double arrows next to each label.
You can use the Filters menu on the left to adjust the results by distance, expected litter COI, dog age, and titles.
For an extended comparison, click on a potential mate's name. Information such as Expected Litter COI, Relatedness by Chromosome, and Health and Traits comparisons will be listed.
See examples below:
Interpreting the Health Results
|Color||# of Variants||Meaning|

1 or 2 copies, if the condition is dominant/codominant/additive MOI
2 copies, if the condition is recessive MOI
