Registration of Purebred Non-Pedigreed Dogs
KCP does allow registration of Non-pedigreed dogs if the following conditions are met:-
- Before applying for registration, the owner must produce the dog before a KCP licensed Judge along with two photographs of the dog, one showing profile and one showing front.
- The Judge would issue an Opinion Certificate saying that in his/her opnion the dog is a true representative of its breed. The Judge will also write at back of the photographs the name of the dog, sex and breed and sign.
- The owner would submit the Registration Application along with the two photographs and Judge’s Opnion Certificate.
- KCP would register the dog with pedigree showing ancestors as "Un-known". However, if any of the parent is registered with the KCP, its name will appear in the pedigree.
- Dogs registered with the KCP can be bred and shown in KCP as well as FCI Shows. However, according to FCI Rules non-pedigreed registered dogs can be shown in FCI International Shows and can also get National Challenge Certificates (CCs) and become even National Champions, but such dogs cannot be awarded with a CACIB. FCI Rule says only those dogs which are registered with three generation Pedigree can get a CACIB.
