How to register your Dog/Bitch:
1. Download the Single Registration Dog Form (Form 2) from the Forms page on this website.
2. Complete the Form 2 - Single Dog Registration Form by filling in all the details required, I.D cards and telephone numbers of both the breeder and the owner of the sire. Make sure that both the sire and dam are registered with the MNCF, otherwise the application cannot be processed. If the sire and dam are not registered, insist with the breeder to have them registered as otherwise you will end up with a dog without pedigree.
Please remember to complete all sections of form and return it to the MNCF. Application processing usually takes up to 7 days to process.

Once you have the form filled including all required signatures, present the form at the office of the MNCF, at 5, Camelia Street, Hamrun (see opening times and directions by clicking here), or send by post to:
The Maltese National Canine Federation, 5, Camelia Street, Hamrun. HMR1700, together with a cheque payable to MNCF. (Please DO NOT send by registered post as there will be no one at the office during the day to sign for registered mail, and therefore registered mail will eventually be returned to the sender, undelivered). Postal Orders are not accepted.
Registration only: €20.00 (with this you will get a Registration Certificate)
Rergistration and 3 Generation Pedigree: €30.00 (with this you will get the registration certificate and a 3 Generation Pedigree, containing the family tree of the dog going back 3 generations).
Postage: €2.00 (please include this if you wish to receive the documents by post instead of collecting personally from the office).
Once the form is received or handed over to the MNCF, this will normally be processed and delivered/ready for collection within 7 days.
The owner of the dog/bitch should insist with the breeder that the form be handed to him already filled and signed (except for section 7 which shall be filled by the new owner). It is the responsibility of the breeder to ensure that the form contains the signatures of the breeder and owner of sire, and that both the Sire & Dam are registered with the MNCF prior to registration of the dog/bitch. This will save time for the owner from running after the owner of the sire to collect the signature and avoid any problems arising in a case were the owner of the Sire will not want to sign or if any of the parents are not registered with the MNCF.
Serious and reliable breeders should register their litters of puppies and hand over the registration certificate to the new owner, signed on the back for the new owners to be able to transfer the ownership of the dog/bitch.
