New Online Registry for Scotch Collies

I have finally launched the long planned online registry for Scotch Collies, my hope is that it will be a valuable resource for those of us who breed these dogs, many of whom are not eligible for other registries. You can see it at www.scotchcollie.org/breed-registry

We are now officially registering dogs that meet our breed standards to be considered an “Old-Time Scotch Collie” We could use lots help and participation, if this sounds appealing to you please take a look at our breed standard and let me know your thoughts on the Old-Time Scotch Collie Breed Standard.

I think this is a huge improvement on most other online registries out there, the English Shepherd Club’s does not even have an online form, just pdf files that you can print out, and my Flash interface is, I think, real nice and is intended to be very easy to use. The forms for adding people and dogs should also be easy to use, but there is room for improvement there and I hope to refine this area soon. I hope to be able to add the ability to upload photos from the site soon, but for now just email them to me and I will get them added. I also want to add some spam protection and user registration, that way I can have trusted users who will have more freedom to add and edit data.

    What ESC registry are you referring to? The ESC registry has no PDF files at all, is fully searchable online for any dogs or owners, and quite detailed. I suggest you actually check it out: http://www.esc-registry.org/

    This was not intended as a put-down for the ESC registry, I am a registered member there and have used it extensively, it is one of the finest in existence. The statement “a huge improvement on most other online registries” was not directed at the ESC registry, “most” is not the same as “all”, I do consider the ESC registry the touchstone. The PDF files I was referring to are those required for adding a dog to the registry, I admit I was less than clear about this, my registry has online forms for adding dogs which I think is one improvement I have over the ESC.

    I might point out that this is not intended to compete with the English Shepherd registry in any way, this is intended primarily for dogs like Scout that cannot be registered elsewhere.
