Breeder Match Tool


An Online "Dating" Portal for Dogs!

To help breeders navigate the complexities of breeding for type, health and diversity, Optimal Selection™ offers breeders the world's first matchmaking tool. The Breeder Tool distills all the results information on the health, traits and diversity of the dogs from each breed population in the Optimal Selection database and provides a scientifically-calculated compatibility score for possible mates. The score helps to identify the breeding pairs that are most likely to produce the healthiest, most diverse puppies.

Breeders can use this information, in addition to criteria like hip scores, conformation of the dog, etc. in making mating decisions. Unlike pedigree analysis or coefficient of inbreeding analysis, the Breeder Tool considers each dog as an individual, evaluating more than 1,877 data points to generate the compatibility scores. This may have advantages over traditional techniques like pedigree analysis.
