Default Question about kennel names & registered names

The naming threads have me wondering...is there a standard for when you put the kennel name in front of vs. behind the dogs name? Excepting the German breeds, of course, since most GSD's and so forth seem to be So-and-so Von Kennelname.

I'm totally clueless about pedigrees and stuff, so just curious! When would a dog be, say, Sweetbriar's Spot and when would he be Spot of Sweetbriar? And what about dogs with both - Sweetbriar's Spot of Fairhaven. Is that a co-owning thing?

If, as a puppy buyer, you don't have a kennel, do you use the breeder's kennel name in front or is that only for the breeder's dogs?

Purebred folks please enlighten me.

I know for registering Penny, we had to use our breeder's kennel name& it was before her name. So, it's Egerton's Wishing Well and we also had to start our registered name with W. Why? I have no idea lol

When I breed Lark the litter will be 100% mine no co-breeders, however it is agreed upon in my contract with Lark's breeder that when she picks a puppy from Lark's litter that puppy will be named "Keechak's ............ at/of Diamond Aire" the rest of the puppies in the litter will just be "Keechak's.........."

Like Keechak said, in the U.S., at least in AKC, the convention is for the breeder's kennel name to be before the main registered name.

Keechak MadeUpName

If a secondary breeder or the puppy's owners want to add their kennel name, they would ordinarily do so at the end.

So generally speaking, if I bought a puppy from Keechak, I would name it

Keechak MadeUpName Shai

or

Keechak MadeUpName of Shai

Mira's registered name followed this convention... [Breeder Name] Mira Shai. I had nothing to do with the breeding, I just like to have my name in all my dogs' registered names to tie them together.

Another variation is usually seen if there are two breeders that breed a litter together...say Keechak and I co-bred a litter on her girl. She's the main breeder but I want my name in there too so we might do something like

Keechak Shai MadeUpName

Of course if the kennel names are really long, that doesn't leave many letters for the puppy owner to work with, but it is another option.

There are no set rules though...these are just kind of general trends for most breeds...to which there are undoubtedly many exceptions lol.


(Apologies to Keechak for being recruited as my example!)

Merlin's breeder was very flexible as long as her kennel name and the other breeder's kennel name was in there somewhere, to fit the registered name we wanted in she even let us squish it together and add some letters!

Merlin's is..

Interesting, thanks everyone! I love the way registered names look with the kennel names, but never knew how it worked. Not as simple as I'd thought.
