Frequently asked questions

My dog is not registered with The Kennel Club. Can I order a pedigree?

You can only order a Pedigree Certificate for a dog who is registered on The Kennel Club Breed Register.

I don’t know my dog's registration name/number. Can I order a certificate?

To ensure we are sending the document for the correct dog, the registration name and number must be quoted on the certificate order.

Can I order a pedigree if I am not the registered owner?

A Five Generation Pedigree Certificate can be ordered by anybody. You do not need to be the registered owner of a dog.

I need the certificate to be posted to an alternative address. Can I request this?

We can send a Five Generation Pedigree to an address of the applicant's choosing.

I need to re-register my dog with an overseas kennel club. Can I use this certificate?

For most import applications with an overseas kennel club, a certified Export Pedigree is required. However, Irish Kennel Club, Guernsey Kennel Club or Kennel Club of Jersey may only require a certified Three Generation Pedigree.

Why are there Champion titles missing from my dog's ancestry?

We now only record Champion titles gained at a national show from the dog's country of origin. We require certified copies of the appropriate Champion Certificates, in order for the titles to be added.

Can my pedigree be emailed to me?

The certificate will be delivered by post. Unfortunately we do not offer an email service.
