Additional services available during Litter Registration

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.

Kennel Names

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 Service

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 for sale in the UK.

Activating transfer of registered ownership

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 Kennel Club.

Kennel Club Pet Insurance

Today, more than ever can be done to return a sick or injured dog to good health. However the vet's bills can be worrying! At the Kennel Club, we believe proper health insurance is an essential part of responsible ownership.
