THERE IS ALOT OF DISCUSION RIGHT NOW AROUND THE FORUM ABOUT BREEDING AND I WAS WONDERING IS YOUR CHI REGISTERED AND HOW IMPORTANT IS IT TO YOU THAT A DOG BE REGISTERED IN YOUR OPINION. HOW IMPORTANT IS IT TO HAVE PERFECT CHI REQUIREMENTS


Porsha is not registered, I have never owned a registed pet and i feel registering is only inportant if you intend to breed it seems to defeat the purpose if you fix your papered pet. But i mostly think its a piece of useless paper. As for the perfect chi requirements i think it is only for show dogs and not pet quality and is of no importance.

Caps can seem like you are shouting which I doubt you are :D

Neither of mine are registered but like you say I would never breed them so its no problem for me :wave:

But some countries they are classed as mongrels (even if full chi) if they are not registered

Papers mean nothing to me as well. I want a girl eventually and I could care less if she came with papers or not. It seems when they come with papers, the breeders hike up the prices a couple hundred dollars and it's not even that expensive to register them. :roll:

We have one registered dog and Roxy is not registered. We don't care about the papers as we will not be showing weither of them. We fell in love with both them for them not for their papers.

:wink: mine are not registered and papers are not important for me...tho if I ever decide I wanna dedicate myself to breeding chis it would have to be with papers...I know I wouldn't have my babies if people out there didn't breed pet quality dogs but I wouldn't do that myself. :wink:

I also agree with Vala, I am not interested in breeding right now so papers mean little to me. Tequila and Ginger did come with AKC papers but I never registered them.

I think its very important to have your dogs registered if you want to breed them. You want to make sure they come for a good, healthy line and be able to show potential buyers the pedegree. Every litter has a couple pups that probably wont meet breed standards which is fine...both my girls done meet standards...but I wouldnt breed them because I dont want to purposly pass on their faults to the next generation.

They don't have to be perfect to be registered - just full-blooded.

Frasier is registered just because I thought it was sorta cool. I've never had a registered pup and I got a great magazine from AKC out of the deal. Also I get AKC email articles that are sometimes really helpful and informative.

I also like that he's registered in my name because if there was ever a family dispute this helps to legally proves him to be mine.

Other than those reasons, I agree it's pretty much pointless if you're not breeding or showing. Most of my dogs have been mixed breeds and I love/loved them all the same. :)

Papers do not mean anything to me since I am not breeding or showing my dogs...but with that said, both of them are AKC registered.

Both of mine are registered. They are both spayed....not planning on breeding or showing them or anything. I am not even sure why we registered them on the first place :lol: . Papers don't really matter. :wink:

chiwi has akc papers. i'm not planning on doing anything with her anymore. she got bad knees. once upon a time i wanted to do amature shows with her and so showing even though it was just a thought i got her papers. but the thought is done with cause of her knees.

i don't think that breeding pet quality is such a bad idea. i mean as long as they follow the breed standard but say the one ear isn't erect or something little like that. if there is no genetic defects and it's close to breed standard then i don't see the problem.

Well, since I want to show and have stuck a foot in the water I do want AKC papers and a dog that meets (as closely as possible) the standards. Also I wouldn't breed a dog that didn't since even with the best breeding programs you are going to end up with some pet quality puppies. I never charged more because a dog had papers when I bred Shih Tzu's but I did insist that show quality pups went to show homes.

I am getting a registerd Chi, and Yes it was something important to me. I'm guessing it's because I grew up with dogs and it was always important to my mother to have registered pets. I guess it's something that just got passed down. Also if I am paying over $700 for a pup then I want papers on her just incase.

I don't care....

Gizmo is CKC, dunno what that is and I don't really care LOL...he's my furbaby and all I care about is that he is healthy...

I think it only matters when your going to breed...

Other than that, no biggie...papers or no papers is fine with me :D
