Where does the information come from?
The majority of information will come from breeders and pet owners that submit the questionnaire for dogs they have or have had. However much information has also been obtained from publicly available records, online pedigrees, and databases, such as OFA..
Can I add an Alaskan Klee Kai to the database?
If you wish to add your AKK to the pedigree site, you must first be a registered user. You can register by clicking on the Register link above in the navigation bar. After you receive confirmation that your account is activated you can login and be taken to a page where you can search the database or add your AKK.
If my dog is not UKC or AKC registered can I still submit his or her information?
Yes! We would like to include ALL AKK, deceased, neutered, breeding, pet and show dogs.. How do I measure my AKK?
A to B would be the height at withers and C to D would be length.

Explain the information posted with the COI.
COI Info, i.e. 34/60/62: The first number reflects to total number of “ Unique” dogs we have in the displayed dogs pedigree. The second number refers to the total # of ancestors known for the generations displayed (ie: 5 Generations). And the third number indicates the total # of ancestors possible for the generations displayed, i.e. 5 Generations will generate 62 possible ancestors.
