Ok so here is my newest question. Mace's parents are not registered but their parents are. I can get the numbers if I need to.
We want to compete when we get back to the states. While we don't have the problems here in competing we probably would in the states.

Who can I register Mace with?
I looked at AKC and for the limited he would need to be fixed. We aren't going to do this any time soon.
CKC was a little confusing and unorganized.

Who else is out there? What other options do I have? Thanks

Compete in what?

For AKC performance events like agility, getting an ILP number is really easy. Just spay/neuter certificate, photos of the dog, fill out the paperwork and send the $$$$$$. That way you wouldn't have to worry about all the paperwork and registration papers for the parent dogs.

I don't know this for certain but I'm guessing that if your dog's grandparents are registered but the parents are not, the parents would have to be registered before you can register Mace. Are the parents AKC?? Why don't you send the question to AKC. They have an area for FAQs. Good luck.

In order to register a foreign born dog here in teh State with AKC, you need his registration from his birth country, and a certificate or stamp on those papers that must be in your name.

If his parents are not "registered" - are you saying they have white or green papers instead of pink, and therefore he is ineligible for registration? If this is true, the only way you will get AKC is through the ILP which does require neutering.

I just checked the UKC (United Kennel Club) site and it doesn't look like Mace would be elegible to be registered with them since he's not registered anywhere. Their Limited Privilege Registration is similar to AKC's in that the dog must be spayed or neutered to get this type of registration.

They have contact information if you want to double check the information.

Mace's parents were never registered. Their parents were, pink papers. You can't register even with AKC until they are fixed and we are not doing this now. But I want to try and register him now.

So the whole fix them or don't compete in any sport gets to me. So I have two wait till they are 2 before I can compete? I am not liking this.

You can compete in schutzhund, at least in this country. DVG clubs don't care, so long as the dog can work and the handler is dedicated! How about agility? USDAA and NADAC allow anything and they may not have spay/neuter requirements. So long as it is a dog, you're good to go, except you can't really compete until your dog is physically mature to avoid injury, but you can start the training. What about flyball? Or carting? Herding lessons? Weight pull? Lots of options to keep you busy, if not competing then definitely for training.

Do try schutzhund, though. You don't have to do protection work but you can do the traffic test, the endurance test, obedience, and tracking.

We will be doing what we can while here in Germany as far as the obedience, agility and starting the protection with Schutzhund.
