Kennel Club Assured Breeder Scheme
The Kennel Club Assured Breeder Scheme promotes good breeding
practice and, as a breeder, you may wish to consider joining. There
are set requirements that Assured Breeders must agree to follow,
which encourage the breeding of healthy, well-adjusted puppies.
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.
Dog Name Check
When registering your litter you will have the opportunity to
name your puppies. With just over 20% of dog names being rejected
it can be disheartened if you have spent hours choosing the names
which are then not available as they conflict with an existing name
already taken for the breed or an active Kennel Name.
The Dog Name Check tool allows you to check your names before
applying, in order to improve your chances of getting your
preferred choice of name. The tool is only a guide and the names
will be subjected to further validation once submitted and we
cannot guarantee they will be accepted.
Selling your puppies - Find A Puppy
Let the Kennel Club help you find suitable homes for your new
puppies. Our Find a Puppy service provides contact details of
breeders who currently have Kennel Club registered pedigree puppies

Activating transfer of registered
Once you have sold a puppy to the new owner, you should
encourage them to transfer the registered ownership of the puppy
into their name with the Kennel Club. As the breeder you need to
sign the Transfer of Registered Ownership Form (all Breeders must
sign if there is more than one) on the reverse of the Kennel Club
Registration Certificate and the new owner must complete the rest
of the form and either transfer ownership online or return to the
