There are some shows that offer a Baby Puppy class for those 4-6 months old. Otherwise, the puppy must be at least 6 months of age on the day you want to exhibit the dog.
dog without a Canadian Registration # or ERN # be entered in a show in Canada?
Yes. If the dog is born in Canada, and is eligible to be registered, but has not yet received their CKC #, they can apply on the CKC's website for a Temporary Competition Number (TCN). This is generated instantly. Once you have that, you can enter that dog into a show. A dog born outside of Canada, but not yet registered in Canada, can also be entered with that TCN, however if a foreign born dog gets points while in Canada, you only have 30 days to get the application for registration in to the Canadian Kennel Club. Otherwise the dog will lose any points it received before being registered.
is the cost for entering dogs that do not have a Canadian Registration # or ERN
Listing fees charged by the Canadian Kennel Club for dogs not yet registered are currently $10.00 plus HST tax for each show that you enter. If you have an all breed and specialty entry on the same day, you have to pay the listing fees twice for that day. The same applies to two obedience trials and double conformation shows on the same day.

No refund for "TCN fees" will be made after the official show closing.

When one or more all-breed and/or specialty shows are held on the same day, in the same venue, the request for moving of class dogs to specials must be made prior to the scheduled opening of the first show.
