Q. What is a registry?
This is one of our most frequently asked questions. Basically, these organizations are record keeping facilities. When your pet is "registered", this means this animal is accepted by the club, and their personal information is maintained and stored with the club or registry. This vital information is the breed, sex, color, name, date of birth, assigned registration number and litter number, as well as the parents' names and registration numbers. The breeder, as well as the current and previous owners are also recorded. Many pets are registered with more than one registry-this means he is accepted by more than one club. This is called double or triple registered depending on how many clubs in which the animal is accepted.
Finally, we want to clear up the most misunderstood concept pertaining to animal registration clubs. The club in which an animal is registered is not responsible for the quality of the animal or pet. Quality is not determined by the name of the club in which he is registered. Quality comes from the genes of the parent dogs, and the integrity of the breeder. Any club in existence can have pets registered that are of superior quality, as well as have pets that are of inferior quality. We do not allow a breeder or seller to charge more for a pet with our registration papers. Our registry is for pet lineage tracking purposes. It is not to allow breeders to sell or make money off of an animal.
