Registration Notes

  • An application cannot be accepted if any alterations or deletions are made to the names of the previous or present owners.
  • When submitted, this form remains the property of the Kennel Club. A registration certificate will be issued in the names of the new owner(s). 
  • The Kennel Club registration does not equate to legal ownership. 
  • Your rights and obligations between two or more joint owners should be confirmed and agreed in writing between the respective owners. In any dispute, your contractual and statutory rights under law will still apply. 
  • The Kennel Club cannot determine any dispute between co-owners. The Kennel Club will give effect where possible and appropriate to any court order or settlement upon presentation of satisfactory evidence. 
  • This application is to confirm the change in registered ownership.  It is not intended to represent any form of contractual arrangement or document of sale between the previous and new owner.
  • The data and health screening results connected to your dog will be published and used for registration and publication in relevant Kennel Club documentation as well as included in the Health Test Results Finder and Mate Select calculations. The data may also be used for research (statistical purposes) and shared with trusted and reputable partners for the sole purpose of undertaking research to improve dog health and welfare.
  • Failure to fully complete the application process and/or include the correct payment will result in delaying the registration process and the application may have to be sent back to you.
