Check the special registry services - if you are moving to the states or living there, I think you can have the papers transferred from the CKC to the AKC (providing all the paperwork checks out). I'm not 100% sure though - I think you'll have to contact both registries about it!

Here's a link the AKC's special registry pamphlet:\&SEARCH_BUTTON.Y=14&page=3

Have you read the AKC site? They probably have all the info on there. :)

no he is not reg under CKC he has papers for me to reg him under that

So what your saying is that he isn't registered right now but you have the papers to register him?

If this is right,then something is wrong here.This is not how it works.

Your pup should already be registered with the CKC at birth.

The breeder is the one who fills out all the papers.They register the litter first,then each pup.Then there are additional papers that the breeder fills out once the pup is sold.Then within 5-6 months you recieve the registration certificate which looks like a diploma.Has the Sire and Dams name,the breeders name,kennel name,and then your name.

This from the CKC.

The cost of same shall be the responsibility of the breeder or the owner of the dog at time of sale. Under no circumstances should anyone submit these applications on the breeder's behalf, nor should they pay for the transactions, above and beyond the sale price of the dog.

That was some good info.I have a question regarding the 50 dollar fee.
I have just received the letter around 5 months and 2 weeks.They mentionned there is a 50 dollar fee.Can someone please explain that to me?
Also,how is the certificate look like?

Any inputs appreciated.

The 50.00 is to become a member and receive info and the magazine, thats it. It is an option for you and has nothing to do with your dog being registered.
The breeder is not allowed to charge you for the papers.

OP - Is that CKC paperwork for the Canadian Kennel Club or the Continental Kennel Club?

dragon, that's what I was thinking as soon as they said they are in the USA.

A lot of breeders in the USA sell dogs that are "CKC" registered which means basically didly squat. They say they are "ckc" registered to entice buyers, but the CKC really isn't anything any anyone can participate.

You may have some troubles registering the puppy if the parents and litter aren't AKC registered. You might have ti be ILP registered (see their website).

I didn't even think of that....Guess being Canadian I am so used to it meaning Canadian Kennel Club.... :D ...I was thinking maybe the parents were from Canada.

How old is your pup?

As raingirl stated,the Continental Kennel Club means quat.The will even register mutts.

What letter and where from?

My scanner isn't working or else I could show you what the certificate looks like.

Well sounds to me that you did not get him from a reputable breeder.No reputable breeder would register their dogs with the Continental Kennel Club.At least none that I know of.

As I stated before,the buyer is not the one who fills out the papers.

I really wouldn't bother trying to register him under the AKC(you may not be able to anyway).

Shoot, I gave you the link to the "Rare and Designer breed" page.

I like the "A kennel club for today's productive breeders"...

When will people learn that they have to come here FIRST and then go get a puppy? :p
