Registered Dog Names Up to 50 Characters!

Owners at birth will now have greater flexibility in naming their dogs.
Registered dog names can now contain a maximum of 50 CHARACTERS, due to a recent amendment to the CKC By-laws on July 24. The update also allows for greater flexibility to change a dog’s name after the current restriction of 60 days from the date of registration, to up to one year from the date of registration.
Previously, a limit of 30 characters, including spaces and punctuation, has been in place when registering a dog with the CKC.

Effective February 1, 2020, the CKC’s Schedule of Fees will be amended to include an additional fee of $10.00 for members and $20.00 for non-members when registering a Canadian born dog with a name containing more than thirty-five (35) characters to a maximum of fifty (50) characters (including spaces and punctuation). In the case where a previously registered dog’s name is being amended to include additional characters, this fee will apply in addition to an amendment fee as set out in the CKC’s Schedule of Fees.
Please be advised that up until January 31, 2020, the CKC will waive both of these fees.
