Registration Associations

What is a registration association?

A pet registration association is basically a company that keeps track of pedigrees in exchange for money. When a dog is registered by its owner, the pet registration association issues a printed paper as proof of registration. Registration associations are simply companies that keep pedigree records as their method of earning a living.

Pet registration associations do NOT ensure that the dogs they register are of good quality or good health, and the company a dog is registered with does not indicate the dog's quality.

Therefore, it is up to breeders and pet owners to make sure their dogs are of good quality. All pet registration associations have good and poor-quality dogs in their registry.

Pet registration associations may also offers shows, which pet owners can participate in. Some pet association shows are highly competitive, and are not fun for the newcomer. Some are very fun for newcomers and experienced show people alike.

If you are interested in showing, do some research and contact people that show a variety of breeds in associations to learn about the atmosphere, costs, etc.

Common Associations for Dog Registration

  • AKC

  • APRI

  • UKC

  • UABR

  • Many others!

UKC

http://www.ukcdogs.com/

Some of our dogs are also UKC registered in addition to other associations (dual and triple registered), and I believe that all of our dogs qualify for UKC registry.

UKC is a fantastic association...in our opinion, probably the best association for anyone wanting to show their dog in a performance event. They are the oldest all-breed performance dog registry in the world. They sponsor over 15,000 events each year (as of 2013).

APRI

http://www.aprpets.org/

APRI is a good registry for beginning show families. People that show in APRI are much more friendly and helpful than many that show in AKC, as they do it as a fun hobby instead of having the goal to win high awards.

We like APRI for its friendly staff and the ease at which you can ask questions and get answers.

APRI does not register cross-bred ("designer breeds") dogs, and only supports the breeding of purebred dogs. We think this is a responsible stance, and applaud APRI for not encouraging "fad" breeding.

UABR

http://www.unitedregistry.com/

UABR is a registration we began using in 2017. We like their friendly staff, and that they research pedigrees and show championships earned from some other associations on their registration pedigrees!

AKC

http://www.akc.org/

Limited AKC registration would mean that the dog could not be used to breed for puppies that would be AKC registered, and can not be shown in breeding-conformation classes.

Full AKC registration is sometimes allowable by us if a puppy's parents are both AKC registered. This would allow a puppy to be used as a breeding and/or show dog if the new owner desires.

We usually offer Limited AKC registration for our puppies whose parents are both AKC registered. We have found that most people requesting AKC registration are breeders...some honestly admitting it, and others trying to sneak it past us. For this reason, we will want to talk to you about your intentions, facilities, mates for our puppy in the future, etc. if you ask for full AKC registration.

Does AKC registration ensure that a puppy is of good quality?

No.

This is directly from the AKC web site (2013):

"There is a widely held belief that "AKC" or "AKC papers" guarantee the quality of a dog. This is not the case. AKC is a registry body. A registration certificate identifies the dog as the offspring of a known sire and dam, born on a known date. It in no way indicates the quality or state of health of the dog."
