Litter Registration Instructions and Forms

 
Use these applications to register a litter of puppies born from a NAVHDA registered dam that was mated to a sire of the same breed registered with NAVHDA or a NAVHDA recognized registry. Please review the NAVHDA registration policy.
 
If the dam is not registered with NAVHDA, please complete a Single Dog Registration Form to register her.
 
If dam was leased at the time of mating, you must submit a Leased Dam  form.
