i havent dug much in their rule book but do they have a similar system as UKC in that if a dog's registration isn't complete by the time of an event can you still run him and have a specified time frame to get registration complete to still count the hunt test pass? gonna start in the AKC game too and just got my stuff sent off yesterday for my pup but was thinking about running at East Tennessee at the end of the month.

So far as I can tell, AKC events require AKC registration.

However, when you sent off the registration package for your dog, there was already a registration number assigned to the dog. If you just enter and use that number, chances are no one will recognize that you've got the horse before the cart. As far as that goes, normally your dog should be registered within 10 to 14 days.

that was his UKC registration # though? I'm sure they would know the difference right? at least thats how the info was on my paperwork. the top line after the payment info asked for registration # and for what registry that was for.

but yes I've also heard that AKC gets it done quite a bit faster than UKC.

Always send it in online if you can. They will send you a printable copy of the registration certificate within 2 minutes. Just did it for a pup today. Paid with a credit card, confirmed info and filled out form and bam. Instant gratification. Got her number and shes ready to run in a couple weeks. You can always call and ask them to speed it through. The number at the top that starts with SR is going to be your dogs registered number. With that you should be able to use it to enter. I would contact the test secretary and find out just to make sure.

I assumed that you sent off an AKC registration document. If not, then my statements don't apply.

The AKC system works by having the breeder file for a litter registration and specifying the number of pups. The litter is given a number and one application for individual registration per dog returned to the breeder. The breeder gives you the application and that document contains the AKC litter number plus a 2 digit suffix. For instance the current litter numbers look like "SRXXXXXX". Your pup should have a document with that number plus "01" or "02" or "03" or....

The AKC doesn't care what the UKC number is since it is not a foreign registry, which is handled differently.

He's registering a Boykin under an open registration for an individual dog that wasn't issued litter papers.

Ok here is the straight skinny from people in the know at AKC for those wanting to register a boykin AKC.

Not hard...you can't do it online per the way other dogs can, they have a downloadable application. submit it. with your UKC registration #'s and registration papers. Submit a 5 generation pedigree from boykin spaniel society. 2 pictures of the dog. and you're good to go.

Now i talked to a nice lady that said that if you have the ability to scan and email the documents, you can do it that way and have a registration # from the AKC very quickly. Now looks like i can have my # in time for the deadline on the next test i wanted to run in AKC.

my first go at AKC.
