AKC papers

How long should it take to receive akc certificate from a breeder after you send proof of spay? Does your dog have to be a year old before registering with AKC, to receive certificate?

You are completely at the mercy of the breeder, unfortunately. Some are good about getting them out to people, others are a bit careless about it. My breeder gave me the paperwork I needed to register him with AKC at the time I picked him up.

Thanks Krandall, We had to sign a contract that gave the breeder rights, but never anything to be assurred we would get Rosie's papers. Her breeder has a problem with returning phone calls and emails.

That's a shame, and I certainly hope you can get it straightened out. However, now that AKC allows unregistered dogs to compete in all the sports, it doesn't keep you from doing anything you want if you DON'T get her papers. You can't of course, compete in conformation, but you can't compete in conformation with a neutered dog even WITH papers.

As a warning to others, however, remember that contracts are negotiable. (or should be) If there is something you aren't comfortable about in your contract, work that out with the breeder AHEAD OF TIME, when you can still walk away if you can't reach a meeting of the minds.

I helped a new member do this with her contract fairly recently. We went over the contract, and I pointed out the places that could work out poorly for the buyer, and places where safeguards weren't clearly specified. The person went back to her breeder and RESPECTFULLY discussed some possible changes. (for instance, one was extending the neutering period from 6 months to one year, to allow the pup to mature) Because she was approached nicely, and was a good breeder to start with, they were able to work out a contract that was acceptable to both of them.

If it really comes to that, (and I certainly would think twice with a neutered pet puppy) and you are in the same state as the breeder, you can always resort to small claims court if a breeder breeches the contract. But this becomes much more difficult across state lines.
