Registering your dog

Wednesday, June 22, 2011
posted by Jim Murphy

A purebred dog is eligible for AKC registration if it’s litter has been registered. When you purchase a purebred, you should get an individual Dog Registration Application from the seller. Once the application has been completed, you should submit it to the AKC along with the proper fee. You can also register a dog online. In about three weeks, you will receive your dogs AKC registration certificate.

When you fill out the application, you must remember that the application must be filled out jointly by the litter owner and the new owner. The application is color coded for the convenience of both parties.  The litter owner fills out the following information:

  • Sex of dog
  • Color and marking of dog
  • Registration type (Full or Limited)
  • Transfer date
  • Name and address of all new owners and co-owners
  • Signatures of all litter owners

The new owner fills out the following:

  • Name of dog
  • Signatures of all owners and co-owners
  • Payment information
  • Registration Options (For purchasing pedigrees and DVDs)

The new owner and litter owner must sign the application. Please be sure that all sections are completed and signed properly. The fee is non refundable and is subject to change.

Please note the following:

The buyer of an AKC-registrable dog should obtain the dog’s AKC papers from the seller at the same time the dog is purchased. If a dog is delivered or sold with the understanding that AKC papers will not be furnished, the buyer should sign a statement agreeing to this condition. This agreement should be kept in the seller’s records.

Information obtained from the American Kennel Club.

Once this is done, you can now enjoy your new puppy and pamper him with dog toys and treats.
