Common Questions
What is my date of transfer?

Your date of transfer is the date you got your puppy! Unless you are registering the same day you got your furry friend, be sure to backdate so this information is correct. For example, if you picked up your puppy last Saturday, enter that date.

Where do I find my PIN?

The location of your PIN corresponds to the color of the application. If your application is blue and white, the PIN is located at the top of the form.

If it’s red, yellow, and blue, your PIN is in the yellow-shaded area in the lower right of your application. The Registration Type code is located directly to the left of that, above the color codes.

How do I add a co-owner?

Adding a co-owner is easy! After adding the first owner, save the contact. Then click the Add Another Owner button. There is a maximum of four owners, and a co-owner fee applies.

Note that when adding co-owners, the first person listed will receive all dog correspondence in the mail, and all co-owners will receive applicable emails.
