  • What is puppy registration? – Registering any dog, including a puppy, involves submitting the dog’s information to a kennel organization like ours so we can include it in our database. Having your puppy registered with us will allow you to keep track of its ancestry and breed information, and it will make your pup eligible to participate in dog shows and sports when they reach adulthood.
  • How does puppy registration work? – To enter your pup into our registry, you will need to fill out an application. We’ll ask for information about your dog, including their name, breed, and physical characteristics. We’ll also ask for information about you, the owner, so we can contact you about our events and other services.
  • Can I enter my dog in more than one registry? – Yes, you can complete the puppy registration process with our organization even if your pup is already registered somewhere else. That way, you can gain access to our services and events in addition to those offered by the other organization.
