    LOL !!!

    i don't think i'll apply to get him changed to the main register anyway because i don't want to breed from him. looking at him now i can see maybe why he was on the limited one ... his nose isn't fully black and he has a white patch on his chest ! i sware this could not be seen when he was younger !! i think it's super cute (have never seen a goldie like this before) but i read somewhere goldens should be one colour. so i'm assuming this means no white patches.

    is limited also not for export ? or is that a different one yet again ? because they didn't want ANY of their puppies being exported ... something about stopping people to buy it from them, then sell them for double o/seas where they don't get treated as a loving pet. i can't remember if the two are linked or not ... limited and no export ?

    also, is a main registered more expensive than a limited one ? or no difference ?

    anyway i've attached a pic of little Yogi and his best mate and big brother, Moto. (they bugged me to do it because Yogi loves it when people ooooh & ahhhh over him !!!!)

    There is a box on the back of the papers breeders tick for no export. But mainly limited register means not for breeding or showing.

    There is about $7 (per pup/reg papers) difference between main and limited register as a puppy. The differences between the prices goes up the older the dog gets and so does the price of registering.

    The price of registering a litter is insignificant until you take in the whole picture of producing a litter, then of course every little things adds up.

    But before Limited Register came about and you sold a dog to someone who said they were interested in dog sports/obedience you always did hope that that was exactly what they intended to do with the dog.

    Absolutely stunning photo of your dogs, I'm very jealous of everyones cameras and photography skills.

    There usually is a price difference yes, as those who want to buy a dog on main register are looking for the highest quality dog they can find.
    Limit register does not make them any less of a dog, they just might have some fault that makes them unsuitable for showing or breeding, so therefor are sold at a slightly lower price.
    To put it in terms of a product, you wouldn't pay full price for a china vase with a crack in the handle, but you would for one with no imperfections.

    I should probably make clear that in my previous post I was talking about the costs for the breeder when submitting the paperwork.

    As Crested said, it's also normal for a breeder to ask a higher price for a full register puppy over a limited register puppy. That may appear strange to many people because they are all raised with the same love and care, I guess you could say they are charging more for a full register puppy's potential.

    When I bought my schnauzer the breeder sold her on a limited register and explained it was because she (the breeder) wanted to ensure my bitch was 1. good enough to breed from when she reached adulthood (ie to standard), 2. I had had the suitable health tests done and 3. so she could ok the dog I wanted to use. She said if all that was ok she would transfer the registration over to full. I thought all was reasonable. I never did breed (never wanted to either) as my expensive bitch was a complete dud in terms of temperament. Most definately the bitch you wouldn't want to breed with.

    My other purebred dog was sold on a limited register as the breeder sold his breeding stock (ie stud quality dogs) for a much higher price than what I paid. He explained this when I went in for the interview before he would sell me one of his dogs. Again never dreamed of breeding my boy - why do it when others (like the breeder I got him from) do a much better job. When I want another dog (which incidently I do now as he had to be PTS a couple of weeks ago) I will go back to the same breeder and buy another.

    i think that makes a lot of sense !!! so sorry to hear about your boy. that's always the hardest things about dogs is that they are only on loan... hope the next pup brings you plenty of joy !!!

    That does make sense, but only if the breeder is genuine, otherwise it is a good spiel to sell a pup they have no intention of changing to open register.

    In some breeds the offspring can be cleared test by parentage tests, so no need for further testing of offspring, others do need individual tests or x rays, pays to check very carefully on your chosen breed and know your breeder well before you go for that option
