How to register your dog

The Kennel Club is dedicated to canine wellbeing and registers over 250,000 pedigree dogs every year and many crossbreeds too. This knowledge helps to maintain the integrity and health of dogs. The Kennel Club welcomes all dogs and has a register suitable for both pedigree and crossbreed dogs.

Why register

If your dog is registered with the Kennel Club, you will gain access to an unparalleled source of information, experience and advice on dog welfare, health, training and breeding, and have the option of receiving many benefits from Kennel Club partners. Registering your dog with the Kennel Club also means that it can take part in many shows and events throughout the country. From fun days out to serious competitions, these activities are an opportunity to meet other owners, learn more about dogs, and simply have a great time.

All profits from the organisation are reinvested into funding the many programmes run in the best interest of dogs and dog owners including the Kennel Club Charitable Trust. Registration with the Kennel Club enables dog owners to be involved in all aspects of the dog world - from involvement in local lobbying, competing in fun activities and schemes, to health programmes and initiatives, training advice and much, much more.

If you already have a registered dog, then join MyKC - our new online service for both dog owners and breeders providing lots of help and tips throughout your dog's life plus lots of exclusive offers for you and your dog.
