How to Register Your Dog: 6 Steps

Registering your dog is an important aspect of responsible pet ownership. There are many registries from which to choose, the most well-known being the American Kennel Club (AKC). Registering your dog with one of these esteemed organizations grants you access to educational and informational services, and allows your dog to participate in dog events and competitions.

Dogs should not have any shared relatives for over 4 generations back for 'champion-dog' possibilities for most desirable dogs at max prices. In-breeding is not a highly desirable practice for most. You really need to study your desired breed to find out what traits are desirable, breed costs, vet bill estimates, etc.
