Registration of puppies

Registering a purebred pup with the IKC is highly recommended. IKC registration certifies that your breeding was carried out responsibly and in a sustainable way. It is essential for pups competing in a number of competitions, and greatly adds to the resale value of your animal.

To register a pup, download form 18 and return it to the Irish Kennel club along with the appropriate fee.
