If you are considering the purchase of a puppy advertised as CKC registered, the breeder will supply you with the CKC Pre-Printed Puppy Application at the time of sale, in accordance with CKC Rules and Regulations. See example application on to the left. You will need this to complete the puppy registration process.
If the Pre-Printed Puppy Application is NOT provided to you at the time of sale, there is no assurance that the puppy you are purchasing is CKC registered. The CKC Pre-printed Puppy Application serves as verification that the litter was registered with CKC and ensures the puppy's eligibility for official registration with Continental Kennel Club Inc.
At the time of registration, after purchase, you will need to enter the application number and the birthdate of the puppy, and make sure that the breeder signed your application. Submit the Pre-printed Puppy Application online or by mail to complete the CKC registration process and certify the puppy as a CKC-registered canine. You MUST complete the registration process in order to protect your rights and privileges as a CKC Member.
