When you purchase a Kennel Club registered dog the breeder would
have recorded with the Kennel Club the dog's details and the dog
would be registered to the breeder. The breeder provides the
Registration Information Document to the new owner so you can
change ownership into your name.
By changing the registered ownership of your dog you are showing
an official commitment to your dogs wellbeing and preserving the
pedigree line of your dog with the Kennel Club. It is vital that
you change ownership as soon as possible so that the correct

in order to show or breed from your dog, it must be registered with
the Kennel Club in your name.
