****Any person wanting FULL REGISTRATION with a AKS puppy must notify us before making a deposit!****

Limited Registration*

Limited Registration means that the dog is registered but no litters produced by that dog are eligible for registration. The dog can compete in every AKC event, including obedience, tracking, field trials, hunt tests, and agility, except for breed competition, at a licensed or member event.  It is sort of an insurance to the breeder. 

Why would a breeder specify a limited registration for a puppy?

Simply put to protect the puppy and to try to prevent genetic problems in our breed.

Puppy mills will often buy puppies with the intent of breeding them as soon as possible. Some owners of puppy mills will even hire young couples to pose as puppy buyers in order to get past screening by breeders, then the puppy is transferred to the puppy mill. In order to keep their costs down, a puppy mill will breed a dog early and often. They won’t test for genetic problems. They don’t screen their buyers (except to make sure the buyer has sufficient cash available). They take few (if any) precautions to prevent disease in their dogs.

We sell MOST of our puppies with limited registration to make them less appealing to puppy mills – a puppy whose offspring can’t be registered isn’t as valuable to them, It is sort of an insurance to the breeder.

Limited registration also helps to prevent genetic problems by preventing the breeding of dogs who haven’t been checked for these problems. Well, it doesn’t actually prevent the breeding, just the registration of any offspring. Few owners will go to the expense of breeding their registered dog, if the offspring can’t be registered.

What if I later decide I'd like to breed the dog?

  • Limited Registration is reversible.  If the puppy grows up to be potential breeding stock that would improve the bloodlines of the breed, the breeder can submit a form to the American Kennel Club to have the limitation reversed, with a fee paid to the breeder to reverse it to Full Registration.

    AKS Water-bound Retriever's minimum requirements to have a  limited registration reversed:
         
  •       The DOG is a minimum of 24 months of age, but NO LATER THAT 26 MONTHS OF AGE.
  •       The dog's eyes are cleared of genetic problems by a Board-Certified Veterinary Ophthalmologist, and can get a CERF number.
  •       The dog's hips & elbows are certified clear of canine hip/elbow dysplasia by the (OFA).
  •       The dog is tested and found clear of Centronuclear Myopathy (CNM) and Exercise Induced Collapse (EIC), or if a carrier of (EIC) will not be bred to another carrier.  ***  If the parents of the puppy are already clear of CNM & EIC by parentage these two tests are not necessary.***
  •       AKS's or AKS prefix is used some where in the AKC registered name, if not, Limited will NOT be reversed!
 
A fee must be paid to the breeder before release of Full Registration this fee is to cover AKC and Breeder Reversal Limited Registration fees.
 
LIMITED REGISTRATION WILL NOT BE REVERSED WITHOUT THE FEE'S PAID IN-FULL, BY CHECK, CASH OR BANK MONEY ORDER, MADE PAYABLE TO AMY AVERY FOR $100 PLUS THE BALANCE OF LIMITED REGISTRATION & FULL REGISTRATION PUPPY PRICE! NO EXCEPTIONS!!! 

 
It is our opinion that a dog that doesn’t pass these basic health checks should not be bred!
