CKC Recognition Of The American Eskimo Dog

Having complied with the provisions of Article 20 of the Animal Pedigree Act, authorization has been granted by the Minister of Agriculture to add the American Eskimo Dog to the CKC By-laws, Section 25, Subsection 25.1, Recognized Breeds.


Effective March 1, 2006, Canadian born specimens of the breed are eligible for CKC registration under the terms set forth in the Policy and Procedures Manual, Chapter IV, Section A, Recognition of New Breeds, Subsection 7, which reads as follows:


In those circumstances where a large Canadian born population of breed specimens has developed over a considerable number of years and consequently the Club is satisfied that it is unreasonable to expect adherence to Procedure RG003 of these rules, the Registration Committee may direct that representatives of the breed, whelped in Canada prior to the date upon which the breed was recognized by the CKC, be individually registered on the basis of acceptable pedigrees and certificates of registration issued by a foreign breed club which heretofore maintained the stud book for the breed. Such pedigrees and certificates must, however, meet the standards as set forth for those issued by foreign clubs whose stud books are recognized by the CKC. This provision shall be effective for only two (2) years following the date upon which the breed was recognized by the CKC following which Canadian born specimens may only be registered in the manner described in Procedure RG003 of the rules governing recognition of a breed by the CKC.


This means that all American Eskimo Dogs whelped in Canada prior to March 1, 2006, may be individually registered using the American Kennel Club certificates and pedigrees rather than being first litter registered with the CKC as is the customary way.  Effective March 1, 2008, however, this practice will cease and Canadian born specimens of the breed, regardless of their date of birth, will have to be first litter registered with the CKC in accordance with Procedure RG003 of the rules governing CKC recognition of a breed.  Given this proviso, it is in the best interest of those residents of Canada who presently own American Eskimo Dogs, particularly breeding sires and dams, to acquire individual CKC registration of their dogs at the earliest opportunity.  The requirements set forth in Procedure RG003 of the rules governing CKC recognition of a breed are as follows:


In the case of a dog born in Canada, its sire (if imported to Canada) and its dam must be registered individually in the CKC records and litter registration in the usual way will be required. If the sire of a dog born in Canada is not owned in Canada (dam was bred before export to Canada) then the sire must be a dog which would be eligible for registration had it been imported to Canada and the owner of the dam must supply, official documents in the way required by Section 28.3(c) of the CKC By-laws, the information necessary to register the litter.


Specimens of the breed imported to Canada are eligible for registration in the customary way (completion of the CKC application for registration of a dog imported to Canada) as well as those owned by residents of the USA (completion of the CKC application for registration of a dog owned by a resident of the USA). In either case, the application for CKC registration must be accompanied by the original or notarized copy of the certificate of registration and AKC certified three generation pedigree issued by the American Kennel Club.


Those persons who have previously submitted original AKC pedigrees, registration certificates and applications to the CKC to acquire “Miscellaneous Class Certification” status are not required to submit their pedigrees, certificates and applications again for CKC registration purposes. Requests to register previously certified dogs should be directed to the Registration Division.


Effective June 1, 2006, the American Eskimo Dog will be eligible to compete

in regular events. The American Eskimo Toy Dog has been placed in Group V

(5) Toys, and The American Eskimo Miniature and Standard Dog in Group VI (6) Non-Sporting.
