Litter Registration Application

Contact CKC and download this form or do an on line litter registration, if a CKC member. Once puppies are whelped, complete this form and have stud dog owner sign the form or accept the on-line application. Send the completed form with appropriate fee to CKC. You should submit this form as soon as the puppies are whelped.

Puppy Registration Forms

For each puppy listed on the Litter Registration Application, you will recieve a registration form. Most breeders insist on their kennel name being the first word in the dog’s name. Also some breeders have themes for their litters and require the name of the puppy to fit into that theme. You could, if desired, ask the buyer what name they would like to appear on the CKC Certificate. Make any special requirements known to the buyers well in advance so they can pick out an appropriate name for their puppy.
