Notes on Data Management

  1. Only the organization that “owns” the dog can enter and edit data on their dogs. The exception is IWDR data administrators, who have editing permissions to correct data errors in a dog’s key identifying information, when errors have been reported and the owner of the dog is not an IWDR user.
  2. Other working dog organizations can view each others basic dog information, but private data remains private.
  3. Users from working dog organizations can only view their own working dog data, not the data belonging to other organizations.
  4. Cooperatives have the option of using special screens where each member can see specified data on all dogs enrolled in the cooperative.
  5. Other organizations can request the owner share information on a dog. The owner can accept or reject the sharing request, and later can terminate the request.
  6. Data in IWDR can be searched and reported on. Any page in IWDR can be printed by using your web browser print options. Either print to paper or to a PDF to share data with others.
  7. Upon request data downloads can be provided. Contact support@iwdr.org for more information on this option.
