The Canadian Kennel Club would like to remind all breeders and those who register purebred dogs through CKC, that only microchips that have successfully been reviewed by the National Companion Animal Coalition (NCAC) and meet the Canadian Standard are acceptable for registration purposes—as per CKC By-Law Section 26.2(a).
Therefore, please note that the non-NCAC approved chip currently being marketed to breeders by Viaguard/Accu-Metrics is not acceptable for registration purposes at this time and until this product has undergone the necessary review process by the NCAC.
It is the breeder’s responsibility to purchase and implant microchip identification that is NCAC-approved to ensure that your CKC registration application is accepted. Please refer to the CKC website homepage for the most current list of acceptable microchips.
NCAC-approved microchips are available for purchase at $9.99 each, in addition to a single-use implanter (that includes a microchip) for $9.99 each, through the CKC Order Desk at 1-800-250-8040.
