Dogs are the third most profitable illegal trade in the EU, after narcotics and weapons. The EU reports that 47.000 dogs are smuggled every month, and thousands of dogs die during transport or at the puppy mills, in addition to the inbreeding and health problems. It is too easy to sell dogs without documentation, and too hard for dog owners to find authorized info about where dogs are coming from, health information and the pedigrees
In every country there is a national kennel club which is controlling dog registers, breeding and pedigree registers. These clubs have outdated IT systems, which makes it too easy to fake documentation and avoid entering health info into pedigrees. The dog clubs and national dog organizations are in need of better IT solutions to be able to better handle the situation. We are creating a SaaS platform that connects dog owners, breeders and dog organizations to help them get control over health data and registers.
