From this point forward, all dogs being dual registered with ASDR from AKC papers that are registered as Australian Shepherd will ONLY be registered as a standard Australian Shepherd. If you select Miniature on your application for your AKC Australian Shepherd, they will need to be measured at an ASDR show by an ASDR official. AKC Mini Americans will be entered as Miniature Australian Shepherds. Size of relatives will not factor into the dog’s size category.

There is a new form and price for reprints of dog papers.    You must use this form to be able to get a new copy of your papers.                           


Lately we have gotten lots of emails with the form sent in as JPGs from phones.  These are too small for us to print and read.  They must be scanned and saved as a PDF file.  If they are not sent in that way, we will send them back.   This takes time and slows the process.   
If you register all the puppies in your litter (no litters older than 2 years), you will get your next litter application at no charge.   This means, you must use the online process to register them yourself, not mail them in for the office to do them.  After you have registered all puppies in the current litter and are ready to register a new litter, use pay with check as your payment choice. Then send an email to using FREE LITTER APPLICATION as the subject line and request the litter be released. Remember we will check those emails every morning Monday through Thursday, so it’s best not to wait until the last minute to register your litter. This is unlimited…. No matter how many litters you register in a year, and as long as you register the puppies in those litters to the new owners, you will not have to pay for the initial registration fee  of the next litter.
You can register the puppies to the new owners, or some breeders register the puppies in their name and then do the transfer to the new owner. This works well if you have a contract that needs to be fulfilled. If the new owner wants to give the puppy a different call name, it can be changed when they transfer the dog as long as the dog has not had a litter. or has completed a title. No matter how you register the puppies, if you want all papers sent to you, you will need to let us know in the email asking for the litter to be released, otherwise we will send directly to the primary owner (if you choose to co-own the dog). This is such a good way to keep track of your puppies. You can make sure your kennel name is listed as you like and make sure that the breeding status is recorded correctly.
Lately we have had requests for a form we used to have--the Litter disposition form.  We created it so everyone could have an easy way to keep track of who they sold their puppies to and what number they used. This was really handy in the event someone lost their papers.   Here it is againl

NEW Online form:


We are excited to announce that Breeders can now pre-registerthe  puppies from their  litters before they go to their new owners! You may be asking why would you o this? Well, here are the benefits!

  1. This will ensure that every puppy in your litter gets registered giving you a free litter registration on your next litter (this saves you $30). Make sure you email us when you go to register the next litter to get this offer.
  2. YOU will get to mark the breeding rights section on the registration paper. This ensures that you never miss an email to approve a registration and a puppy you sold on limited registration gets marked with full and you miss it.
  3. You will register the puppy starting with your kennel name (your kennel name must be registered with us for the new puppy owner to not be able to take it off), the new owner will be able to change the name but will not be able to take the kennel name off when making this change. This means you again do not have to worry about catching the email and making the changes within the 10 days we allow.
  4. We will be discounting the registration price per puppy when the breeder registers all puppies themselves. Our registrations are $35, and if you the breeder registers the entire litter at once the price will be $25 per puppy, reducing the overall price for you or your puppy buyers by $10 per puppy. This means with a litter of 6 puppies you would be saving $60 plus the $30 for the next litter registration.

So now you may be wondering; how do I go about pre-registering my puppies.

  1. You will register your litter (on your first litter you will have to pay the $30), if you have a litter that all puppies have been registered in, register your litter online and then click check or money order at checkout, then send an email to saying you have a litter with all the puppies registered and you would like to use your free litter registration, please include the litter number from BOTH litters (the one with all pups previously registered and the new litter you are registering for free). Please give us 24 business hours (Monday-Thursday) to update the litter.
  2. Once the litter registration is finalized, on the website go to register, click on register Puppies & Dogs, choose register from a litter that I own, select your litter, and a puppy number and click continue.
  3. Verify you have selected the correct puppy litter and gender and click continue.
  4. Fill out the puppy’s information. On the dogs registered name MAKE SURE you include your kennel name if you want it included in the final registered name, you will then make up a name for the puppy so you can identify with one it is, the new owner will have a chance to change the ending during final registration. This can be something as simple as your kennel name, the moms name and puppy 1, or if you give puppies a “litter name” you could do your kennel name followed by the litter name, or your kennel name and the new owners name, ect. Also, double check that you click the correct registration status (limited or full). Verify all information and click continue.
  5. On the owner information page mark that you are the owner and there are no co-owners.
  6. Verify all information, agree to the terms, and add to cart.
  7. Repeat steps 2-6 on all puppies in the litter.
  8. Once you have registered all puppies, click the cart icon at the top of the page.
  9. Continue check-out and select to pay with a check or money order.
  10. After you have completed check out send an email to stating you have completed the entire litters pre-registration and would like to pay or have already paid if you have done so please include the following: your card information (we need name on the card, card number, expiration date, zip code and the 3 digit security code), paypal transaction number (all paypal payments should be made to, or you can call to make the payment over the phone.
  11. You will receive a reply email from us within 72 business hours stating we have processed your request and payment.
  12. When it is time for puppies to go home, you will go to account, click on litters, select the litter that puppy is from, find their litter number (with the temporary registered name you gave them), and print out the litter application and givie it to the new owner along with the Link to the wufoo form they will use to make the transfer.  
  13. The application will be blank so you will need to let the new puppy owners know that they need to scan or take a photo of this application to include when filling out the following Wufoo form. You can also require they fill out this form at pickup and scan and fill out the Wufoo form yourself to ensure the registration process gets complete. At this point they will also need to choose their registered name for their dog. We will keep your kennel name at the front of the dog’s name as long as your kennel name is registered with us and just change the ending that they choose. Just a reminder when including your kennel name, we have a character limit of 40 for the entire dog name (so be courteous to your buyers and shorten your kennel name when possible). 
  14. Once we have received wufoo form application from your or the puppy buyer, we will finalize  and mail the registration paper directly to the new owner.

Remember, we will provide a link to the Wufoo form for the new owners to complete the process.      


Transfer of Ownership


Transfer of ownership online form is available now.

Approval verification can be received via phone call or email. Breeders have 7 days from when ASDR receives dog application for registration forms to correct registration status, after that point registration status cannot be updated from anyone but the current owner. Owners selling dogs must mark the change on the transfer when transferring a dog to a new owner if they do not want full registration given. Once limited registration has been given, only the breeder of that dog can reverse the registration to full.

Any dog that has ASDR papers and was taken AKC as Mini American will not have to do anything, their papers will still be honored. Remember we will be measuring at the shows, so if your dog is over 18 inches it will be a Standard Aussie and if under 14 inches or under it will be a Toy.  Size of relatives will not factor into the dog’s size category and each individual dog will need a proof of size.  Re-prints are $20.00.          

AKC Australian Shepherds can be Dual Registered with ASDR.  They will be entered as Standard Australian Shepherds.  AKC Australian Shepherds must be measured at an ASDR show by an ASDR official to change to a Mini Australian Shepherd. Re-prints are $20.00.
