1. You need to choose a name for your pup 28-character or less including spaces, commas etc. ** This is a “Title” a unique name that will appear on your pups AKC Papers. Example: “ Smiths  Super  Dog  of  NH” you can use  MA, Ct, anything to make it unique. Last name town what ever you wish, Because AKC says you have the right to name the pup.  

** This is not the everyday “Call Name” that you have chosen for your pup.  Example: “Buddy, Becky, Max” etc.  A “Call Name” is not needed for AKC Papers, nor is it needed at time of pickup. You can choose this after your pup is home when you get to know him or her better.. 

Print one letter per space. Skip a space between words. Choose a unique name. Do not use numbers. Names are subject to AKC approval. Once a dog is registered, its name cannot be changed. 

2. You will need to know who’s name is going to be on the dogs papers as the owner/owners or co-owners. 

3. Please remember that the above table is only a example of the AKC forms. If you have any questions please ask. The AKC papers are very important and must be filled out properly. They do not accept cross out, whiteout nor will they send a duplicate form.  You can practice on this paper. 

NOTE: The Original AKC Papers never leave my home and only I mail them in. So please have the information you need with you at time of pick up. Thank You.
