Here are the rules:
The person who owns the dog at the time the application for registration is submitted to the AKC has the right to name it. Names are subject to AKC approval and the following guidelines:
  • Name choices are limited to (50) fifty characters. Spaces between words, apostrophes and hyphens are counted. Note: An additional $10 fee will be incurred when more than (36) thirty-six characters are chosen.
  • All letters in a dog's name are limited to the standard English alphabet. Diacritical markings (accent grave, accent acute, umlaut, etc.) are not printed on Registration Certificates in a dog's name. When Registration Certificates are printed, all letters are capitalized.
  • A Registered Kennel Name cannot be included in a dog's name unless its use is authorized by the owner of the name.
  • Roman numerals must not be included at the end of the dog's name. The AKC reserves the right to assign roman numerals for identification purposes.
  • The AKC permits thirty-seven (37) dogs of each breed to be assigned the same name.
  • Words and phrases that may not be included in a dog's name:
    • Champion, champ, sieger or any other AKC title or show term, either spelled out or abbreviated.
    • Obscenities and words derogatory to any race, creed or nationality or transliterations of such words.
    • Kennel(s), male, stud, sire, bitch, dam and female.
    • Breed names alone.
    • There are no restrictions on arabic (1, 2, 3), cardinal (one, two, three) and ordinal (first, second, third) numbers that are spelled out.
  • An imported dog must be registered with the same name under which it was registered in its country of birth, except for the addition of a Registered Kennel Name.
Thanks for info. If the breeder has already filled in the name on her registration papers that I send in, then I can just white it out and change it? There was nothing about naming in the contract. I have to send her papers in soon but have been delaying since there have been suggestions on getting a dna test. Others have done dna tests and the breeder/trainer has been passing off dogs saying their "so and so" when really there are not. I guess the AKC is aware of it. I won't even get into the hips. Bummer that a great thing like owning a great dog turns out to be a bit of a disaster, a very expensive disaster.

So maybe when I find out who she is I will name her appropiately, with little attention to the breeders name.

Kennel name is Arale, so he would be Arale's Krieger , then whatever else I choose. He is a high drive pup. We were orginially calling him Mr Fiesty before we came up with the actual name, so I might try and pick something with his personality.

Like martemchik said, this won't matter at all if you don't plan to show or trial. If you do end up showing or trialing, though, it could cause a certain amount of confusion.
I see what you are saying, and how it would be confusing, thanks I will think of something to add. I do plan on taking him to the competition level.

At the end of the day...if you don't plan on showing or trialing the name doesn't matter at all.

More than likely the kennel wouldn't really want you to shorten their name because its a way of keeping track of the litter and for others to be able to figure out where your dog came from without having to hunt you down or figure out what you did.

So...say you do show/trial. Your dog wins X and ends up in a magazine. Someone really likes your dog, and wants to go to the same kennel. They'll have a way of finding them and also using Pedigreedatabase to the genetics of your dog.

I saw another thread about the whole von/vom thing and it left me lost. So basically I am looking for "Kennel name's Krieger (from the house of Ash).

What is the kennel name? You may bump into character restrictions. If you plan to UKC register as well, they allow fewer characters than AKC.
