Temporary Competition Numbers: Self-serve Online Registration for Listed Dogs

With the implementation of CKC’s IT system, a new process requires all owners of unregistered, recognized breeds entering events to obtain a Temporary Competition Number (TCN). TCNs will replace the current system of entering events with “listed dogs”, and will allow dogs to temporarily participate in CKC events while they pursue permanent registration or an Event Registration Number (ERN).

A TCN must be obtained before submitting an entry for an event and the same TCN must be used for all event entries for a dog until the dog is permanently registered. Once a dog is permanently registered or has an ERN, the TCN will be replaced with the registration number or ERN. A TCN cannot be used for Listed Breeds (MCN) or dogs that will require a (Performance Event Number) PEN or (Canine Companion Number) CCN.

While there is no fee to obtain a TCN, exhibitors will still be required to pay TCN Fees (formerly called listing fees) when entering events using this number.
The process of obtaining a TCN will be self-serve; exhibitors will be directed to the CKC website to complete an online application and a TCN will be issued instantly upon completion.
Exhibitors may also obtain a TCN by completing a printed application and submitting it to the CKC via mail, or by contacting the Shows and Trials Division by telephone. 
Until March 2, 2020 dogs may still be entered into CKC events without a registration number or ERN by marking “TCN” on the entry form (or “Listed” if it is an old entry form). However, an  e-mail address will be required. Before you apply for a TCN online, exhibitors are encouraged to check their dog’s profiles to determine if CKC has already created a TCN for them. There will be a tab for TCN Dogs on the Owner’s Portal account.
Please note that if your dog does not have a registration number or ERN, and has already competed in a CKC event and earned points, scores, or awards, there is no need to apply for a TCN.  CKC records will be updated accordingly.
