Changing ownership of your dog

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 information is recorded on the Kennel Club database. Additionally in order to show or breed from your dog, it must be registered with the Kennel Club in your name.
