The NPBA with the Help of Marybeth Cline DVM, the American Bloodhound Club, and ultimately the American Kennel Club has pushed for a change in the way AKC views registration. AKC would only register the transfer or issue PAL registrations to individuals and not agencies or corporations.

The registration for the NPBA is Free of charge using this form and must be sent to the person who is listed on the form.


This is great news. There is one restriction that the AKC upheld. In order to get a PAL Registration, the dog must be either neutered or spayed. No exceptions.
