Registration with the American Bully Association is easy. At the ABA, we provide options for both convenient online registration and standard print and mail. At the bottom of this page, you will find links to each registration form option making it easy to find the one that is right for you.
The standard time frame for individual dog registrations is approximately 6 weeks, as is the industry standard. For litter and associated material, we place a priority due to its often time-sensitive nature and provide this type of material in 2-4 weeks. If you have a litter and parent(s) that need to be registered, you should not do them separately as this can unnecessarily delay the material for the litter.
At the American Bully Association, we offer various discount options also that reward our members based on both the number of dogs being registered as well as the amount of pedigree information being provided. Additionally, we offer a FREE litter registration program for those who have litter pups needing to be registered.
Our basic individual dog registration fee is: 1 Dog - $37, 2 - $67, 3 - $87, 4 - $97, 5+ $105. For international members (those outside the USA), there is a $4.99 additional shipping fee. This fee is based on the US dollar. This fee schedule is based on the number of dogs all registered at the same time.
If a member is able to provide a pedigree from an official registry, this should be done. When providing such information, the ABA will not only record but also further research the information on your behalf ABSOLUTELY FREE! Based on the size of the pedigree and what research reveals, this oftentimes provides ABA members with a level of genealogical and pedigree data unmatched by any registry in the world. The ABA's proprietary genealogy and Family Profile system is the most advanced familial tracking system in the world, allowing the ABA to provide the most comprehensive genealogy data and most extensive pedigrees in existence.
All registrations come with FREE printed pedigrees up to 7 generations based on the amount of information ascertained through research. Those members who provide enough research documentation may additionally qualify for Platinum Pedigree status, which provides access to a printed pedigree ranging from 8-11 generations. The Platinum Pedigree is over 800% larger than the largest 7-generation pedigrees offered by the UKC and ADBA and 14 times larger than the largest ABKC offered 4-generation standard pedigrees. While the ABA Platinum Pedigree is substantially larger than any other registries, we offer it for only $49 plus shipping, which is considerably less than other registries with substantially smaller pedigrees.
Litters pups are registered at a rate of $10 for the first 10 pups. This is a discount of 73% from the normal registration price for individual dogs. For litters larger than 10 pups, each pup after the 10th is included FREE.
At the American Bully Association, we additionally offer a FREE LITTER REGISTRATION program. Click this link to learn more about the FREE LITTER REGISTRATION program.
At the ABA, we DO NOT provide an option to pay for priority processing. We feel this is unfair to the individuals already in the registration process. In essence, it is like allowing people to pay to skip the line. We feel this is unethical to give preference in such a manner. We do, however, realize that sometimes that timing can be critical, especially when dealing with litter-related material, which is why we place a standard priority on its processing. If a situation does dictate emergency processing, based on the situation, we do reserve the right to consider expeditious completion. Such cases, however, are extremely limited and will not be made as a regular practice of operation. The best thing to avoid the need for emergency registration services is to properly plan and manage one's registration needs. This means if it is a litter, then they should be registered ASAP after their birth so that a time crunch is not experienced when needing to provide the new owners with their paperwork. If you do need emergency processing, you can contact us with greater detail about your situation and why such should be considered for expeditious completion.
