    Unhappy getting a breeding certificate

    Hello, I have a question about dog breeding. How do you say in UK if a puppy from certified parents obtains his own certificate. Does any single-word verb exist for this?
    Thanks,
    Marketa

    Re: getting a breeding certificate

    The paper that lists a puppy's parents, grandparents, etc, is called a "pedigree."

    Then, do you use "pedigree" as a verb (This young female dog is pedigreed.) or do you preffer "to obtain a pedigree" or something like this? (This young female dog has obtained a pedigree, or ... has a pedigree)

    Re: getting a breeding certificate

    This puppy is fully certified as being pedigree = of a known and recorded breeding line, registered with a breed society.

    Puppies do not obtain such papers - it is of course their breeders who apply for and receive them.
