An Explanation of Common Dog Registries

Registered Dog

With so many dog registries out there and so many initials, it can be overwhelming when figuring out which registry to choose for your new dog.

Why Register A Dog?

Why is it important to register your dog? Well, it’s totally up to you, as the owner, whether or not you choose to register your dog as well as what registry you choose to use.

Dogs that will be bred and their offspring sold should be registered so that ancestry can be recorded. Also, there are many sporting events, shows and other dog competitions that will require your pup to be registered in an approved registry in order for him or her to participate.

If you don’t plan on breeding or showing/competing your dog then you may opt-out to register him, which is just as well.

If you choose to register your dog, however, you will need to decide which registry to use. This decision can be a bit overwhelming if you haven’t had past experience with the process.

She was taken in by a dog lover and got cleaned up and posted on Facebook as being found.  No one ever claimed this adorable fur baby as their own, which was probably a good thing because dog lover Tabitha, fell in love with her right away.

So once it was determined that no one was looking for her she was named Lola and became a permanent member of Tabitha’s family.

The vet determined that she is about eight years old.
