    Our dam recently gave birth to 4 puppies and we've recently found out about the whole kc registration situations and what exactly they mean. Many buyers that have been interested in the pups have asked us if they are registered and to which we've told them no. The thing is- we also own the sire of the pups and the breeder we got him from actually made sure he was kc registered, we just had to simply submit a 'change of ownership' form and everything worked well. On the other hand, we got the dam off a breeder who didn't exactly register her to KC and at the time we didn't actually realise we would've needed this in the future or anything of the sort.
    We've tried our best to sort something out and we've also registered her onto the activity register and everything went well as she was eventually approved of. It's just that we still can't use her 'activity registration' in the puppy registrations because she's not on the breeders register.
    We've sent many emails to kc themselves to see if we can do anything at all but it seems they're very busy and they can't answer emails instantly.

    Is there absolutely any way we can get the dam registered? It would help a bunch in the future as well as right now too. We'd really like to register the puppies. We were told she's pedigree from the breeder themselves but once again, we never asked about any documents or registrations- a big mistake on our part.

    It’s only the breeder of the dog that can register with KC. Do you know why the bitch wasn’t KC registered as a puppy?

    Unfortunately not, we never really asked since it never really came up. We got the sire a few years later and only then found out about kc and its registrations, so now we're in this dilemna.

    Is this not one of the things you should have considered before breeding?
    What breed are they?

    With mum not registered, theres no guarantee she is what the breeder says she is, thus theres no guarantee the pups are what you say they are, nor any way to trace inbreeding coefficient or the health test results back through generations, which could hugely affect puppies.
    Is it safe to assume the parents weren't health tested prior to breeding too?

    They're french bulldogs, sire is kc registered but there's obviously issues with the dams registrations. Yes, we definitely should have considered this and it's a big mistake on our part but when we got the dam we weren't actually planning on breeding her, we found out there was a high risk for many issues with french bulldog breeding and at first we just wanted a family pet. It only occurred to us a few years later where we eventually got the sire as well and only then thought about kc and their registrations. It all happened so quickly but we obviously didn't do enough research. Now that this is an issue, i'm asking around in case there is anyway I can resolve this.

    Unfortunately, there really is nothing you can do about it.

    A dog can only ever be registered by it's Breeder and the Kennel Club will not make exceptions.

    Of course they are frenchies.......
    KC registration is the least of your worries then, frankly. As a breed, they are not healthy and pairings need to be chosen extremely carefully to minimise the all too often normalised suffering related to their conformation, not just whatever is convenient.
    Its heartbreaking how many people jump into breeding without thoroughly considering the lives they are producing.
    Again, KC registration should have been one of the last things on your checklist before going ahead.

    But no, without the breeder registering mum, you cannot have her registered.

    What colour are they?
    Will you be health testing parents now so you can give future owners all the information on the pups that you possibly can?

    Bet they're blue
    And answer is no they didn't, as pups are here already
    They just put together boy and girl they had and out pops, at this time, upwards of £12,000 worth of pups

    Always happy to be proved wrong of course

    You won't be able to register the puppies, it's as simple as that.

    I had exactly this thought.
