Limited Registration Vs. Full Registration

The question frequently comes up what the difference is between full registration and limited registration.  “Limited” registration sounds kind of scary, but that’s actually the type of registration that is appropriate for most of our puppy buyers.  Put simply, it means that you are purchasing your puppy to be a pet and that you will not be showing or breeding it.  Full registration is needed if you are going to show your puppy or if you are planning on breeding it in the future.  Both types of registration are “AKC Registered.”   We do very occasionally sell puppies with full registration, but only with a show contract on a co-owner basis.
