UNDERSTANDING PEDIGREE PAPERS
Each individual dog is issued with a set of pedigree papers. So the parents of your puppy will each have pedigree papers. There are two types of papers issued by the Canine Control Council in your state - Main Register Papers and Limited Register Papers. When you purchase your pup ensure that the papers you are viewing are for your pup .
Main Register - This certificate allows you to breed and show your pup at ANKC sanctioned events.
(However, this certificate does not mean your pup is of breeding and showing quality)
Limited Register - This certificate means your pup is of pet quality, and is not for breeding or conformation showing. Although you can enter your pup in Obedience Trials, Agility Trials, Earth Dog Tests, Endurance Tests, etc.
REMEMBER THAT HAVING A REGISTERED AMSTAFF KEEPS BOTH YOU AND YOUR DOG SAFE AND CAN SAVE YOU ONE OF THE WORST HEARTACHES YOU WILL EVER EXPERIENCE.... HAVING YOUR DOG TAKEN AND DESTROYED BECAUSE OF MISTAKEN IDENTITY...
