If you are interested in breeding and showing dogs, you may want to take a look at the pedigree of your current dog. If you have breed dogs before, you know how frustrating it can be to try and decipher the information on the pedigree. This information can be confusing and if you are not a computer genius you can spend an inordinate amount of time trying to figure it out. If you are like me then you have probably spent a good deal of time searching for the information that you need.
There are ways to get the information you need to figure out your dog’s pedigree. I can tell you that because I have done it. I know that if you have a dog from the breeder that you are interested in breeding you should make sure that he is on the dog pedigree. If the dog is on the dog pedigree, you should take a look at his registration information. You should make sure that the dog is registered and his information matches the information on the dog pedigree.
Dogs can be traced by their registration information. A dog can be registered with the American Kennel Club, the Canine Federation or by mail. The registration information will show whether or not the dog is still alive. Once you have registered the dog with one of these organizations you should see a notice that reads, “Inactive”. You should take a look at the dog’s information on the registration and if it says, “Inactive”, it means that the dog is deceased and can not be registered with those organizations.
Once you have confirmed that the dog is not on the dog pedigree and if the registration information is correct, there is one more thing that you can do. You should mail the dog’s information to the dog’s registration organization. You should make sure that you include a stamped envelope and that it says, “Inactive” on the envelope. You should put your name and return address and if you put an American Airlines, you should put, “Inactive”.
If the information does not match the registration information you should get a reply from the registration organization that it was done and you should expect a reply back that there was no record of your request.
You should make sure that the dog’s information is correct and the registration information matches the information that you have so you can ensure that you can get the dog registered with the relevant organizations and once registered, you should expect to receive the dog.
Some people think that registration is the only way to get a dog. You should know that registration does not guarantee that you get the dog. You should also know that if you register the dog with the American Kennel Club or the Canine Federation you will have a lot more options on what you can get the dog.
