4 Best Management Software for Dog Breeders (2021)

If there’s one struggle that unites dog breeders, it’s the stressful and scattered hamster-wheel of trying to manage a torrent of different pieces of data about your dogs and keeping it all organized for your clients and yourself.

Fortunately, the power of technology means this struggle is no longer as necessary now as it used to be. The evolution of dog breeder management software means that you don’t need to spend your days feeling overwhelmed by pedigrees, whelping dates, heat cycles, and upcoming appointments.

Dog breeding software is an excellent tool to ensure that your business stays organized and profitable. We’ve compiled the four best software for dog breeders on the market today in this piece.

PuppyFat

PuppyFat is a mobile-only management software focusing on managing your dogs’ data. They offer free dog breeding software options as well as paid options.

Features and Perks

Using PuppyFat, you’ll be able to maintain a watchful eye on your dogs’ breeding lives with the capacity to log and predict your dogs’ heat cycles, track matings, and keep up to date on the gestation countdown. They also help you keep track of records with dog pdf exports, contact management, and death records functionality.

All this is in addition to a score of different sorts of information you can track about your dogs. They also listen attentively to their users, as they actively use a “Request a Feature” form where any user can request a new feature on the app.

Pricing

PuppyFat offers three price points. Their base application is free to use but lacks:

  • Full litter tracking (from whelping to weaning)
  • The capacity to upload and store documents/certificates
  • The power to monitor weights, feeds, and treatments for your dogs

However, it’s a great beginner-free dog breeder software to try out. 

If you want those advanced features, you’ll need to shell out either $45.99 for their 3-month “Flex” plan or $99.99 for their yearly “Unlimited” plan. According to PuppyFat, the Flex plan is their most popular plan, while the Unlimited plan is a better value.
