Your dog can only be registered on the Breed Register if it is currently a recognised breed and both parents are of the same breed and already registered. Litters can be registered online or alternatively you can download the Litter Registration Form.
The breeder will register the puppies, it is best if the puppies are register as soon as possible to make sure that the relevant documents are available for the new owner at the time of sale.
The breeder should hand you a blue certificate, which includes all the puppy's details that are registered. You will need to ensure that the breeder has signed the transfer of ownership form on the back of the certificate and completed the date of sale field.
Once you get your registered puppy home you will need to transfer the ownership of the puppy into your own name ensuring that all parties have signed the relevant sections.
