Thread: Entry Express Breed Categories

    I don't have any suggestions for who to contact, but am also in support of having the listings correct. I am a proud owner of an "other".....it's funny to talk to other, owners of "others" about our "others". But I just wish it was listed correctly. And being listed as a completely different breed isn't right. I would think it would be an easy fix. And with all the new breeds being allowed to run in Retriever Hunt tests I feel its the right time to change and update the list. Thats one of the first places I look in catalog, I check to see the oldest and youngest and a breakdown in breeds.

    Hope it gets fixed.

    From the drop down box in the my dogs section, it looks like breeds are an option? So are the different breeds listed as other when the catalouge's are printed? If that is the case it may just be due to the summary stats they place in the front of the catelouge. I can't even imagine the list will all the options for choosing a breed.

    Yes, the summary lists Curly Coated Retrievers as Others. Irks owners Curlies.

    In field trials, there is not an other category, we just get lumped with flat coats. Not that I have anything against flat coats, I just don't have them.

    Tollers are lumped in with "Others" as well although "Poodles" are identified. I got tired of it and tried to talk to the EE folks. I was told that it was a very complicated programming change. I said I could fix it in probably 5 lines of code or less and she hung up on me. A couple months later, same thing. I called them and again was told that it was too complicated. I asked how they got Poodles separated out if it is so hard. Dead silence....then the hang up. I guess that's an improvement. I even emailed Shane about the issue. He never responded.

    Candidly, I thing the EE folks just don't care. You have to use their product and they don't have to care about how dog owners feel about it.

    Eric...I agree with you, it's a simple fix...but got to have a developer who gives a crap...it's a freaking combo box...not rocket science!

    The current EE people are the most frustrating humans on earth. I have had repeated telephone conversations with them and they ASSURE me they will fix this problem. For the hunt test sponsorsed by the CCRCA, I repeatedly contacted them and they ASSURED me that Curlies would be a separate category. They were not. Then, for our National Specialty Working Certificate catalog, I contacted them again and they ASSURED me they would fix this problem. THEY DID NOT. I then contacted them yet again. They promised me restitution for this error and I have not received that either. How do we get through to these people??????

    My guess is that they think no one else knows anything about computers. I think that they don't know anything about computers.

    The data is already collected during the entry process. When you add/edit a dog, there's a drop down wich you can use to select everything but a New Guinea Singing Dog. Then the breed shows up on the screen displays. However, then they don't use the collected data during the production of the catalog. Both strange and dumb.
