All of our companion or pet puppies are sold with AKC Limited Registration and spay/neuter contracts. This means that the dog is registered with AKC however none of the offspring are eligible for registration. A dog with a Limited Registration as well as a spayed or neutered dog can compete in all AKC events except in Conformation classes (breed ring).
