I'd create a custom field and put the dog's name there.

Hello there, @topdogpettraining.


Welcome to the Community space. As mentioned by BRC, you can create a custom field for the dog's name. I'll show you how:

  1. Click Customers.
  2. Choose Customer Center.
  3. Under the Customers & Jobs tab, double-click the customer name.
  4. Go to the Additional Info tab.
  5. Click Define Fields.
  6. Add a field for Dog name.
  7. Click OK.
  8. On the designated field, enter the dog's name.
  9. Click OK to save changes.


That's it. Let me know if there's anything else you need or you have additional questions about customers. I'm still here to help you further. Have a good one!

What @Kirill - CloudBusiness LLC  wrote was quite good.  No need to re-answer.

I would use Add Job. Customer = Owner. Add Job = Pet Name here. You don't need a Custom Field. You want to track All the pets the owner has now and might have over time.

So completely new to QuickBooks. Thanks for your answer.. i think I like this idea most.. but I do the add job, would this show up on receipts? I'd like to be able to quick look at a receipt or customer info and relate what dogs they have.
