Registering pups and litters

N M from Essex asked...

Hello, I have a British bulldog which I am thinking of allowing him to become a stud, however do they have to be registered by the kennel club first to allow them to be a stud dog? I do have his registration form to send off but not sure if its too late now as he's now two years old? but everywhere I go with him people ask me if I stud him out? as they say hes such a good example of his breed.

Many Thanks for your help in advance.

Miss NM

Late Kennel Club registration of a dog

At a guess here the document you have is the one given to you by the breeder of your dog when you purchased him?

If that's the case its not too late as all you will be doing is registering a change of ownership. Currently the dog will still be registered in the breeder's name from when he/she/they registered the litter. The document will need to be signed by the breeder to register change of ownership but its likely that would have been done when they gave you the papers.

There is no rule or law to say your dog has to be KC registered to use as a stud but no responsible breeder would use a dog with no idea of family history as you have no idea how closely related they are which could result in inbreeding and health problems.

You will need to check that there are no breeding restrictions imposed on the dog before you use him for stud and this will be on your documentation.
