Breeding My AKC Registered Female

 

My female dog is AKC registered. Shouldn’t I breed her?

 

Just because a dog is AKC registered doesn’t mean it should be bred. A registered dog simply means that it’s parents are also registered with the same registry. This confers no merit in itself, it simply means that the dog’s lineage is known. Most registries do not make any assertions of quality in the dogs they register. They do not restrict the breeding of their dogs and there is no guarantee that a “registered” dog is a quality specimen. Registries operate on the belief that the breeder is one of integrity and the information submitted to the registry is the truth. The registration papers are only as good as the integrity of the person behind that signature.
