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 with ASDR unless accompanied by a signed height statement from a vet on their letter head. Size of relatives will not factor into the dog’s size category and each individual dog will need a proof of size.

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, 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

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.

This form is for dogs that currently hold a registration with another registry. You must include a copy of the current registration along with this completed application.  No pictures are needed.  You may send extended pedigree if you have it available.   We accept dual registrations from AKC, ASCA, ACA, MASCA, NSDR, UKC, NKC, SCPS and APRI.  We also accept CKC and NAPR registrations WITH pedigree for dual registration, however if they are CKC or NAPR hardship registered dogs (foundation stock/unknown for parents) we will consider it a hardship registration and charge accordingly.   Please contact us before you send a dual registration from a registry not listed for our approval.

We register Miniature American Shepherds into our registry through Dual Registration, but there are rules. They will be registered as Australian Shepherds, as we will not be adding Miniature American name to the database. This decision has involved a lot of thought, and we have come to the conclusion that this is more like the Paint/Quarter/Pinto horse registries—one horse can have 3 registries in 3 different organization. For now, they must at least have Grandparents that were registered with ASDR, and will be considered a Dual Registration. If their parents have ASDR papers, they will be considered an IDR (Individual dog registration). 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.

AKC Australian Shepherds can be Dual Registered with ASDR.  They will be entered as Standard Australian Shepherds.  They can be changed to a Miniature Australian Shepherd with a veterinarian's statement on clinic letterhead stating the height of the dog.

If your dog is CKC or NAPR hardship registered, (foundation stock/unknown parents) we will consider it a hardship registration and charge accordingly $200.00.

You may submit the printable form by mail or email.  

Payment must be included with application.
