The Kennel names were registered and protected, not forced as a purchase agreement..
No contract, handshake deal regards
May you pin all the marks and line the blinds!!

Have no idea if this is the case or not, but with a AKC registered Kennel Name, the registered owner of that name HAS to sign off/give permission on each registration form in order for the puppy buyer to use that name.
This is different than 'requiring' or requesting it be used in your contract. The AKC really doesn't care what you request in your contract.
I'm with you Howard, when I buy one I buy all of it and I will not be told what I can name it, call it , feed it or if I am allowed to breed it. If you are buying one with limited registration you may want to reconsider just what you are buying?

IMO when you buy a dog, you own the dogs and the rights to it. I would not purchase with a limited registration, even with no plans to breed.
I wont buy on a limited. I also dont sell on a limited. What happens if the breeder dies or something happens and you can get a hold of the breeder to get it lifted. the breeder I bought my dog from I was tryignto find them to tell them how good the has been but they went through some personal issues and their house burned down. I cant find them at all. That would have sucked if I bought my dog on a limited.
then people want to throw arond the arguement that once they get the titles and clearance they will lift the limited. So they trust you enought you take your money for the dog but not enough to be responsible.
Also you cant show a dog with a limited registration.
I also agree that limited registrations won't stop or deter puppy mills from breeding at all. They don't give a rats arse about the pups to begin with much less a piece of paper that their clientele doesn't have a clue about.
I only purchase puppies with full registration. I have done CERF and OFA on my older dog and will have the same tests performed on my others when they are old enough. If I choose to breed my dogs I think that it is MY decision and MY decision alone. If I do breed, I would like to sell the puppies to loving homes and hopefully to owners who will use the dogs for hunting, HT, etc. However, when someone pays me for a puppy and drives away with it, it is their baby and they can and will do with it as they please.
You can screen potential buyers, make them sign contracts, etc. but you cannot control the future. Someone who you think will be the perfect owner of one of "your" puppies could end up be a horrible owner.
I personally think many folks have a "holier than thou" attitude when it comes to breeding their dogs. After all how many of these breeders are geneticists? I would guess very, very few if ANY.
How many of these breeders considered the pedigree of their spouse before marrying and producing their own offspring?
