Do you need to get papers on your dog?
Only if you are interested in showing, breeding or doing other dog sports with him/her. Registration papers do have the added benefit of being proof of ownership, but they aren't necessary if you don't wish to have them.

Asked in Dog Breeds
Does your dog need papers to breed her?
Well, not necessarily...if you just want to breed your dog because you want puppies that you will keep or give away for no reason, you do not need papers for her...but if you want to breed her professionally and with a professionally bred stud, then you do need papers proving that she has no health issues and that she is a purebred. You will also need papers if you would like to enter her in showmanship competitions, or if you would like to enter her puppies into competitions like wise.

Asked in Domestic Dogs, Dog Breeds
Your dog has no papers and you want some how do you get them?
Only pedigree/purebred dogs have papers, and the dog must be registered with a Kennel Club e.g. American Kennel Club, English Kennel Club. Not all purebreds have papers either, a puppy can only have papers if BOTH of it's parents themselves had pedigree papers. Unless your dog had two purebred parents of the same breed that each had pedigree papers, then you cannot get papers for your dog. Kennel Club registration papers and pedigree certificates should be given to you by the breeder if your dog is pedigree/Kennel Club registered. Papers cannot be purchased and so it is not likely that you will be able to retrieve them (if the breeder forgot to give you them etc.).

You have bought a purebred dog but he has no papers. Where do you go to get his purebred papers?
Asked in Domestic Dogs, Dog Breeds, Dog Behavior
How do you get papers for your dog?
Pedigree papers are given to puppies after they have been Kennel Club registered by their breeder. Puppies can only be registered if they are 100% pure-bred, are a recognised breed and if both of their parents were also Kennel Club registered. If you were not given pedigree papers by the breeder when you bought your Dog then it is unlikely that your Dog is Kennel Club registered and so it wouldn't be able to get papers. If your Dog is Kennel Club registered but you weren't given or lost the papers, for a fee you can usually contact the Kennel Club that your Dog is registered with and get a new copy.
