Registering your Dog with the AKC
If you won a purebred canine and you want to show him then you will need to register him ahead of time. One of the best organizations to register your dog is with the American Kennel Club. This will ensure that your dog can enter AKC events and shows as well as earn points and awards at year end shows and events. To register your dog with the AKC, go online to their website or call the local chapter for aid. All purebred dogs are eligible to be registered with the AKC as long as the litter has been registered. Your breeder should have provided you with some sort of paperwork showing this. With this information, you can complete an application and mail it or submit it with the appropriate fees online. It should take about three to four weeks for you to receive your registration certificate. If you need help filling out the application, give your veterinarians Washington DC a call.
