AKC Sire Verification of Ownership on CKC Litter Application
We are simplifying the registration process for Canadian breeders using AKC stud dogs for breeding purposes.
Currently, when using AKC-registered sires, Canadian breeders must submit the CKC Litter Application to the AKC for verification of the sire’s name, registration number and ownership. The application will then be mailed from the AKC back to the Canadian breeder, unless the AKC is notified to mail the form directly to the CKC.
Going forward, once the litter application has been verified by the AKC, the AKC will forward the application electronically to the CKC for processing, only if a copy of the certified pedigree of the sire (showing a minimum of three (3) generations and the registered name and number for every dog in the pedigree) accompanies the litter application. The CKC will accept an electronic signature or approval stamp from the AKC on these applications.
If a copy of the sire’s certified pedigree is already on file with the CKC, a note must be submitted with the litter application to the AKC in order for the application to be forwarded to the CKC. If the AKC receives the litter application without a copy of the sire’s certified pedigree, or a note stating the pedigree is already on file with the CKC; the AKC will certify the application and return to the breeder.
This partnership will better assist our breeders with their litter applications sired by AKC-registered dogs.
