Please would all UK owners ensure that their serras are registered on the activity register with the UK Kennel Club. Please ensure the breed name is included. This will help enormously to keeping track on the number in the UK meeting the requirements to have the breed recognised in the UK too. Thank you.

You can apply on-line to the Kennel Club under registrations
- find Activity Register list. There is a fee, complete the form and the Kennel Club will send you an Official Registration Certificate.
You must have the Sires name and the Dam plus breeder, date of birth of the dog.
Hope this helps but we do need 20 registered with the Kennel Club to apply to go onto the Import Register. Hopefully if everyone who owns a Serra in this country will do this the breed can go forward to be recognized.

Thanks Gina, I registered all of Nespa & Finn's puppies for their new owners therefor ensuring that they were on the register. I recommend that any future UK serra breeder does the same - with numbers so precious every little bit helps. Laughing

Hi

I am a bit concerned about the number who have registered and what the kc say they have registered.

Any one who has an activity registration needs to check that the KC have the breed correct. I know I had to get mine changed as they put wrong breed on.

All my dogs & puppies had Portuguese Sheepdog on their details. I now only have old addresses as I have lost touch with the puppy owners. Have you checked with the KC?

Daisy is registered with the K/C as a Portuguese Sheepdog - Wto (whatever that means)?

I've just received this email from the Kennel Club : -

"Thank you for your enquiry about the recognition of a breed. Please find attached guidance on the application process. It is noted there are two names being used for the breed and we would advise that any application should clarify the desired breed name. We do not refer to the activity register to check on the number of dogs of the breed - this is something which is should be declared by the applicant on the recognition application form"

so where do we go from here? If the K/C does not look at the activity register. How do we know how many Serra's are now in the country? and should we still be going onto the Activity Register Question
HELP! Rolling Eyes
So obviously we need pedigree registered names of the dogs coming into the country and their correct registration nos. from the country of orgin Kennel Clubs. Because we must be nearing the 20 required by the K/C By

If we're to go anywhere I suggest that those with the intention of breeding from their serra collaborate and begin to compile the information needed by the Kennel Club. It would also be helpful to liaise with breeds most recently recognised. Laughing

Yes! I do agree. The Catalans sheepdogs are now off of the import register so we do need someone who attends Championship shows to liaise with other breeds who have just gone onto the Import Register for further information.
Sorry but I no longer show my dogs at these shows but will ask around.
Unfortunately I cannot breed from Daisy as she has been spayed. So it's up to the others who are interested in bringing this lovely breed to the fore. slowly I hope and not to over produce. as that could prove disasterous for the breed in the UK.

You are right Gina, I so agree with you. To rush forward given the need to breed healthy and socially well adjusted serras is vital. Patience and perseverance to hold true to the integrity of the breed should be our guide. Laughing

Yes I agree it has to be done correctly from the begining to keep the breed health.

I have good contacts with some new breeds and have taken guidance from them. I also have a contact on the KC breed panel who is also giving guidance on things. They are the groups who suggested registering them on the Activity register as this is the way the Austrailian Sheepdogs moved forward to recognisition.
