- Pedigree Overview
An AKC Pedigree is a printed or electronic document that displays the lineage of an AKC dog and important information about the ancestors in a dog's family tree.
The AKC is pleased to offer two pedigree products:
Printed Certified Pedigrees
Handsomely printed and suitable for framing, certified pedigrees are available in 3- or 4- generation versions. However only 3-generation is available for breeds in the FSS(r) program. A certified pedigree includes an embossed gold AKC seal, which certifies that your dog's pedigree has been compiled from official Stud Book records and is an authentic AKC document.

Online Research Pedigrees
All online research pedigrees are viewed on the web and are available for any AKC-registered dog, 24 hours a day. An online research pedigree includes complete information about dogs in the pedigree, including competition titles and any related health information available (i.e., OFA).
