Frequently Asked Questions - Stud and Foundation Registries
MDBA breeder members have to provide either the original registered pedigree certificate notarized to change ownership on the MDBA registry or a copy of the pedigree certificate to all people who purchase their dogs.
No the MDBA has only one level of registration on the main stud registry.
An MDBA member can provide a copy of the registered pedigree which has been provided to them by the MDBA to the owner rather than the original certificate. The breeder may keep the original until such time as some condition is met .eg. the dog is desexed or the breeder may never give the buyer the original pedigree certificate if they do not want the dog to be bred with and the puppies able to be registered on our stud registry. The MDBA will only accept original certificates to enable someone to use a dog for breeding MDBA registered puppies. If the breeder does not supply the original certificate the control remains with the breeder. The breeder is required to explain this in writing to the buyer prior to time of sale.
