This is a completely redesigned electronic Application for Registration.

Beginning with Version 3.10, fully secure SSL data encryption is supported and you may now submit credit card information.

The same form may be used for all Breed Associations allowing electronic registration. The restriction concerning imported animals has been eliminated provided that the foreign certificate is faxed to CLRC.

You will now receive feedback from the CLRC database and more guidance while completing your application in order to minimize error. Messages appear on the bottom bar of the form window. Please be sure that the bottom bar is not obscured. You will be notified directly on the form when your application has been received at CLRC. E-Mail acknowledgements will not be sent when you use this new application. Beginning with Version 3.10, you may request a printed receipt of your application.

Version 3.0 and later works completely differently than previous Versions and should work reliably on computers with Windows 98 or later including Windows 8. Apple computers users may also use the software if they have Mac OS X 10.0 or higher. Software is also available for Linux computers.

In order to use the new application, please use the following steps. Steps 1, 2 and 3 need only be done one time, unless otherwise requested by CLRC.

You will receive notification that the agreement has been approved. The agreement form can be found at Electronic Registration Agreement (PDF File).
