Yes. Both parents have to be registered. The point of having a pedigree register is that you can trace all the ancestors of a particular dog.

As above, both parents have to be KC registered - although often, it's not always as simple as that.

Some "breeders" will sell the pups as "unregistered" even when the parents are KC registered - and unfortunately, most reasons for this are going to be negative reasons such as:

  • Bitch too young
  • Bitch too old
  • Bitch had too many litters
  • Bitch had more than 2 c-sections
  • Endorsements on one or both parents not lifted because the health-tests have not been done, or don't meet the breeders specification for lifting

There is currently a pilot scheme with the KC for "registering dogs of unverified parentage"

The cost is £100 and you have to jump through quite a few hoops
