Hello, all. My little Josie is CKC Registered (well, as soon as I send in the papers!). I know that registration really only matters if you will be breeding or showing, neither of which I plan to do. Goodness knows that it doesn't matter to me if she's AKC, CKC, INKC, or whatever--I love her just the same. But I was going to go ahead and send in her registration papers for the heck of it.

The CKC offers a lot of different services, all of which are at different prices. The registration only is $10. Then there's registration with Pedigree, then there's registration with a photo, then there's others. I'm not sure which one would be the best idea. Just wanted everyone's opinion about it before I submitted anything. Thanks in advance. :wave:

I got the 3 generation pedagree just because I wanted to know Koke's parents/grandparents names. I'm not breeding either.

It's really up to you, what ever you want or are courious about or can afford.

Since I had considered breeding Jasmine, I got the three generation pedigree also. I've since decided not to breed her, due in large part to things I've learned on this forum and because there are so many things that can go wrong and I'm just not willing to risk her health.

If you aren't planning to breed, I'm not sure why you would need the pedigree. Maybe one of our members with more knowledge on this will have some input.

yeah can someone explain what it is all about to register a pup? I know its just a piece of paper but what benefits are there to register a girl that will not be bred or shown? if any?

I do not plan on breeding Pixie and since it doesn't matter to me who any of grandparents are I just got the cheapest one. I'm not even sure why I did that. It really seems to be nothing unless I sell or breed her and I don't plan on that. As far as I'm concerned the paper doesn't mean much.

I guess the papers just basically prove that he/she is a pure bred or if you ever think of selling many people want papers. I personally though would never sell my chi and I love her so much it wouldn't matter if she were a mixed breed.

I got Cooper registered with pedigree, just to have that info.

There really isn't any bonus to registration if you're just keeping your pup as a family pet. And with CKC registration, there isn't a bonus to registering it at all, unless you're interested in their CKC activities. You can register ANY dog CKC, as long as you find witnesses to attest to the fact the dog is purebred and you can send in photos to corraborate the story. Their registration isn't as strict as AKC, so you could potentially register a mixed breed dog as a purebred, as long as it looked it and you have 2 friends willing to lie for you.

I view Cooper's registration as his birth certificate. It's in his baby book, on the page right before his baby teeth and the date he took his first poop outside. :D

The papers can also be used as proof of ownership.
God forbid, if anyone ever steals one of our pups, we have the papers and a microchip to prove we own them.

I would rather be safe than sorry.

I didn't think about that. Thanks for bringing that to light, though. I planned on retgistering her anyway, but like someone said previously, I'd love Josie just the same if she were mixed. That's definitely a good point. :wink:

my breeders said something about being triple registered. is that possible?
I don't know what the third registration would be but CKC allows any AKC dog to be registered. So, at least, it can be double registered.
