Registering your dog

Thursday, July 21, 2011
posted by Jim Murphy

When someone refers to their dog’s “papers,”  you might wonder what that means.  The papers mean that a dog is pure bred and has been registered with a recognized organization such as the American Kennel Club (AKC) or the Canadian Kennel Club. The papers will show the registration numbers of the dog and it’s parents, the names of the breeder and owner and the dog’s sex and birth date. A pedigree is a family tree. This should not be confused with registration papers. Remember that health and conformation are not considered for acceptance into the registries and that simply having papers is not an indication of quality.

Keep your dog healthy by feeding him right, tossing around his dog toys to give him exercise and lots of love an affection. Remember your pets count!
