Dog Registration and Pedigree Request General Information

 

IWC REGISTRATION REGULATIONS, EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1, 2016

 

The following 6 regulations for registering litters of Windsprites/Longhaired Whippet/Silken Windsprite dogs take effect January 1, 2016.


1) Membership in International Windsprite Club (IWC): The Breeder must a Member in good standing of the IWC.

 

2) IWC Registration for litters born in countries that do not officially recognize Windsprite/Longhaired Whippet/Silken Windsprite as a breed (at this time all countries except Germany, Slovakia, and Czech Republic):


2.A. IWC registration is granted if both the sire and dam have IWC or ILWC registration numbers and regulations 3 and 4 below are met.

2.B. IWC Registration for litters whelped with one IWC or ILWC registered parent and one non-IWC (or non-ILWC)  registered parent who is Windsprite/Longhaired Whippet/Silken Windsprite (WS/LHW/SW) or Smooth Whippet of Longhaired Whippet Descent (SWLWD) or Whippet. Such litters are eligible to receive IWC registration numbers if at least one of the following two documented conditions is met for the non-IWC/ILWC registered parent:


2.B.1. The non-IWC/ILWC registered parent is registered in either the DWZRV (German Sighthound Club), the Slovenska Kynologicka Jednota (Slovakian Sighthound Club), or Českomoravská kynologická unie (Czech Republic Sighthound Club) and other clubs to be added as breed recognition is achieved.

2.B.2. The non-IWC/ILWC registered parent has a four-generation pedigree from another club that includes (at most) whippets, SWLWD, and WS/LHWs/SWs; and has CEA and MDR1 genetic test results (not required for Whippets) and DNA parentage verification provided from a certified genetic testing laboratory.


3) DNA profile: A DNA profile, provided from a certified genetic testing laboratory, on the sire, dam and litter to establish identity and parentage must be filed with the IWC.

4) MDR1 and CEA: These genetic tests, provided from a certified genetic testing laboratory, will be required for all litters when the sire or dam is a carrier or affected (homozygous mutant) for these genetic diseases. If the genetic test results of the sire and dam are on file with the IWC and the MDR1 or CEA genotypes of all the puppies can be determined unequivocally by parentage, the relevant genetic testing does not need to be performed on the puppies.

5) Individual registration: When the owner of an unregistered WS/LHW/SW, SWLWD, or Percent LHW wants to register the dog, the following must be provided: a four-generation pedigree that includes (at most) whippets, SWLWD, and WSs/LHWs/SWs; and provides CEA and MDR1 genetic test results (not required for Whippets) and DNA parentage verification provided from a certified genetic testing laboratory.

6) Application: These regulations apply to litters whelped in all countries except where the breed is officially recognized.

Litters should initially be registered by 12 weeks of age.

Puppies may be given a complete Registered Name, OR a Temporary Identifier which includes the Kennel Name, plus any other designation that identifies each individual puppy with a unique alias. It can be a call name, color/sex/markings, or a code of the breeders choice.

The owner name, address, phone, and email fields may also be left blank, if the puppy does not yet gave a permanent home. In these cases, the registration certificate can be held by the registrar until informed of the owner and their contact information, at which time the certificate will be sent to the new owner. There is no additional charge for updating dog names or owners before the certificates are sent. If the breeder prefers to receive the registration certificates before final names and/or homes are decided, the certificates will be issued with the dog's temporary name/code, with the breeder as owner. An application for updating the registration information may be submitted whenever that infomration is known, and a new registration certificate will be sent out.

Appropriate documentation of DNA profiles, MDR1 and CEA official test results, and other required information must accompany the registration/pedigree application. No applications will be processed until all documentation is complete.

The IWC subscribes to the Annual BioPet Discount Club Membership so that IWC club members in good standing will be eligible to obtain the discounted club rate for BioPet DNA parentage testing ($9.95/dog).

We also have a negotiated a 20% discount with PawPrint Genetics for MDR1, CEA, or any other genetic tests available from that lab.

Please contact the Registrar (Sidney Hoblit) at LHWLady@gmail.com for the instructions for receiving the discounts with BioPet and/or PawPrint Genetics.


We remain committed to promoting the health and welfare of our lovely breed.
