What is a Pedigree?

All dogs born in Portugal and registered with the CPC have a genealogical certificate of registration in the Portuguese stud book (LOP or RI). This registration is in line with its genealogy and ensures that a specific specimen of the breed is registered in the Portuguese Stud Book.

The designation “Pedigree” is attributed to this genealogical certificate which is issued by the CPC and that contains the names of the dog´s ancestors up to the 3rd generation.

The “Export Pedigree” is the document required to register a dog from another FCI member country.

The CPC only recognizes genealogical certificates issued by FCI affiliated member countries.
