Instructions for Registering your Puppy
with the American Kennel Club
When you purchased your puppy you received a copy of your puppy's "Litter Certificate" with the American Kennel Club (AKC) in addition to a "Three Generation AKC Pedigree" which shows your puppy's family tree. In order to register your puppy with the name you have selected, you won't be able to register through the American Kennel Club Website until proof of spay and/or neuter has been provided to us as per your contract. This practice is common with the majority of AKC "rare breed" dog breeders. Your puppy has what is called a “Limited Registration” with AKC which entitles you to participate in any and all American Kennel Club activities. We encourage you to obtain your AKC Canine Good Citizenship or S.T.A.R. Puppy Certification for your puppy and you will not need full AKC registration papers in order to participate in these programs. You will have up to twelve (12) months upon completion of any AKC Good Citizenship Training Coarse to send in your puppy's registration information in order for the American Kennel Club to issue any certificate. If you have any questions, anyone at the American Kennel Club can explain this process to you by calling 919-816-3637 or going to the following link: http://www.akc.org/dog-owners/training/canine-good-citizen/about/
Please note: Breeding is prohibited as per your contract. Breeding is the only reason your puppy would be eligible for "full registration" status. If you feel that your puppy is “breeding” quality, then we would like you to contact us and we can always change your registration status upon approval and further examination. Your White Shepherd puppy is outstanding among all other breeds because of the work we have done over many years at producing the very best of what the breed has to offer.
Thank you for your understanding and we hope you enjoy your puppy for many years to come.
