What is a Kennel Name?
A Kennel Name is an exclusive word that is associated with you
and your dogs. Known as your 'breeder signature', a Kennel
Name will set your puppies aside from those of anyone else.
You can include your Kennel Name within the names of your puppies
at the point of registration as well as add to an existing name of
a dog in your current registered ownership.

following benefits as part of your membership package:

Application for Kennel Name
To apply for your own unique Kennel Name simply complete an
