How to register your Russian Toy with the KC

We thought it would be a good idea to offer some guidelines on how to prepare the documentation ready to register your Russian Toy at the Kennel Club as of 1st July.  If you have any queries please do ask and I will be happy to help.

  • 1.It is most important that you check your dog’s Export Pedigree and that it contains the correct information showing you as the owner and at a UK address.
  • Dependant on country of origin you will require:
  • A certified Export pedigree issued by the overseas Kennel Club, showing you the person importing the dog as the registered owner (this is what the majority of you will have).
  • If the document does not show the registered owner, a registration certificate issued by the overseas Kennel Club is also required.
  • If the overseas Kennel Club does not issue an Export pedigree (America, Canada, Republic of Ireland, Germany, Guernsey, Jersey), a certified pedigree is required.
  • If your dog is registered in Germany, Denmark, Norway or the Netherlands – please send a certified pedigree as well as the Export document.
  • Dogs from Germany - require the Annerkennung Fur Das Ausland (Export Document issued by the VDH) and a copy of the pedigree issued by the breed club.
  • 2.Either take a photo copy of the relevant Export Pedigree/Registration Certificate or scan to your computer. Good quality images via mobile phone saved to the computer can also be used. Ensure it is clear and easy to read.  Blurred or ineligible copies will be rejected and delay the registration process.
  • 3.Pet Passport Number:  this can be found on the front cover and each page of the passport. Look for letters and a number eg: LV002776 – this will be asked for if applying online.
  • 4.Complete the Application for the Registration of an Imported Dog using Form 4 (which you can download from the KC website) and send to the KC by post with a copy of the Export Pedigree (or other) and appropriate fee.
  • 6.Ensure all the relevant information is completed, including copy of Export Pedigree and review the check list. You should be able to get all the information required from the Export Pedigree & passport. You will be asked to download the relevant file with a copy of the Export Pedigree.
  • 7.The standard fee is £30 per dog.  You may choose to upgrade to the five generation pedigree option and/or Petlog membership but this will cost you extra.
  • 8.Please inform Julie Collins – RTBCUK Secretary when you have sent in your application. It is important that the club is aware of numbers registered so we can progress with the Breed via the Kennel Club.
  • 9.For those with puppies born in the UK: It is the responsibility of the Breeder of said puppies to register them with the KC.  Before said puppies can be registered with the KC the parents must first be registered. Once the breeder has the Kennel Club registration documentation for the parents they can then go ahead and register said puppies, either by post using Form 1 (litter registration) or via a MYKC account.
  • 10.You may wish to consider signing up to MYKC - A free online service for owners of dogs & puppies and to give a wealth of advice on responsible breeding and buying a puppy. MyKC is a FREE service from the Kennel Club offering a lifetime of support to puppy seekers, owners and breeders. MyKC is for all dog enthusiasts whether you are looking for your perfect canine pal, own a dog or breed litters of puppies

OVERSEAS OWNERS/EXHIBITORS:  To exhibit in the UK you will need to apply for an Authority to compete number.  This can be done via the Kennel Club website         

Please do note that you cannot exhibit in the UK until the breed standard has been approved in the UK and published in the KC Journal and then the Russian Toy is only eligible for Imported Breed Register Classes.  The system in the UK is very different to what you would be used to under FCI, if you have any queries please do not hesitate to ask.
