AKC paperwork questions

These are probably dumb questions for the breeders on here, but I several that seem to come up when buying a pup.

So say I've decided on a breeder and a particular pup. My day to pick up the pup comes. When I go to pick up the pup, should I get my AKC paperwork at the same time from the breeder?

Say the breeder promises to mail the paperwork later in the week, how long is a reasonable time to wait?

If I never receive my paperwork, what is my recourse?

If you breed your bitch, what is the paperwork flow for getting the AKC paperwork for the litter?

Thank you for your answers.

I've always provided all of the paperwork at the time the pup is picked up.

Some breeders hold the paperwork until the buyers check clears.

That is actually a tough question and the answer is.....it depends. I have sent AKC papers home with the puppies with almost every litter we have had. However, there were a few times that there was a hold up on the stud dog owners end(they were out of town for a few weeks-the person is a handler) and prefers to do things the old fashioned way with sending the litter registration to her. I have also twice had wrong information printed on the AKC papers so they had to be sent back and re-issued.

I have always mailed the information as soon as I got it and I also send an email telling them it has been sent with the litter resistration number, the individual dog registration number and their PIN so they can do it with the email I sent, if they chose or in case something happens to the paperwork while in the mail.

You can contact the AKC to see if the litter has been registered but the big question that I have is why are you getting a puppy from this breeder if you have concerns about getting the AKC paperwork?? You should be able to trust the breeder and have confidence in what they are telling you, if not, you need to walk.

You can also ask the breeder if/when she give the AKC paperwork as I feel these things are dealt with much better in advance.

The paperwork should be given at the time of the sale - and that has been my experience with past dogs.

My puppy that I just brought home the other day was born in Canada and there was apparently an issue about a DNA sample that had to be sent in to the AKC. And the breeders had this done and are waiting for the paperwork.

I was given a written statement from the breeder and she will follow up with email. Plus I will meet her at a show in 2-3 weeks, so our hope is that the AKC would have the paperwork back to her by then.

In this case, she's really at the mercy of the AKC and how fast they move with this.

My feeling is if I didn't trust the breeder to the extent that I felt they were cutting corners or scamming me, I would hope that I'd get signals ahead of time and not hand over a check.

I have received my paperwork every time accept for one pup. I just wondered how the paperwork flowed. Is it possible to do anything if the breeder doesn't get that promised paperwork to you?

Were you able to finally get your girl registered or is this still about Reilly?

My girl has full registration I completely misunderstood my breeder. My husband went with me when we picked up the pup and he clarified the conversation for me. So I was quite lost.

Reilly will never get his registration from Judy Slayton. But I gave up on that long ago. It would be nice to have him registered so I could record his medical problems on K9data.

There is a woman in my adult dog class that is having problems with her breeder also down in Washington not providing paperwork. She is very frustrated and not sure what she could do.

I just had no idea how the paperwork all happens. As a buyer all we know is when we show up. We don't know what questions to ask.

Paperwork should generally be available at the time the puppy is picked up. If not, and there is a valid reason, the breeder should offer a signed statement indicating why, and that when s/he has them they will immediately be forwarded to the new owner. In that statement should be included the registered names and registration numbers of both sire and dam, the whelping date of the litter, and the breeder's name, address (both physical and email), and phone number.
This way the new owner has the pertinent information if it becomes necessary to contact the AKC (or whichever registering body paperwork is promised from.)

Some breeders don't send paperwork until proof of neuter or spay, but this should be a clearly listed clause in the sales contract.

If there isn't any reason for your breeder to not send you the papers, as long as there is no co-owner on the litter, your breeder could easily e-mail you the AKC registration information through their "My Dogs and Litters/Breeder Records" account on AKC.org.

Breeders can register a litter, and send all the registration form information and PIN codes in an e-mail to all buyers on the same day! If there is a co-owner on the litter, paper forms have to give given/mailed to the new owners.

If you are having problems getting AKC papers, contact AKC at info@akc.org Include all of the information, contract, e-mails etc. and they will send the breeder a letter giving them a limited time to respond.
