Registered Kennel Name Program
International Olde English Bulldogge Association offers breeders the
option to protect the use of their kennel's name in the naming of IOEBA
registered dogs. Kennel names of distinguished and notable breeders
were recognized as early as the late 1800's by other registries and kennel
A registered kennel name is a word or
words which a breeder can register with the IOEBA (such as Rio Bravo) for
the protected use by that breeder in the identification of dogs that they
produce and apply for registration with the IOEBA.
The IOEBA agrees to reserve the use of such kennel names submitted and
accepted by the IOEBA for the sole and exclusive use of the individual (s)
applying for registered kennel names.
your kennel name with the IOEBA includes certain benefits such as:
1. Sole and exclusive rights to the use of your kennel name
with the IOEBA.
2. Priority on processing registration applications and litter
3. A free conditional listing on the IOEBA website Roster of IOEBA Registered
4. An active link to your website as long as your site mentions that your dogs are IOEBA registered and your site maintains an active link to the IOEBA's main site at Http://www.ioeba.net.
requirements for IOEBA Kennel Name Registration are as follows:
applicant (s) must be in good standing with the International Olde English
Bulldogge Association, agree to abide the the IOEBA Code Of Ethics and the
IOEBA registration policies.
† The kennel name must be
unique, distinct and unusual.
The kennel name is limited to 18 letters and may be a maximum of two
words. The only permitted punctuation is a hyphen.
The kennel name
may not have been used by anyone other than the applicant in the naming of
any IOEBA registered dogs within 5 years prior to the date of the
words in the kennel name would include, but are not limited to:
corporations or trade names, as well as the names of very famous and
universally recognized persons, living or dead. Words commonly used by
many different breeders in the naming of dogs will not be registered to
one breeder. The kennel name cannot contain any derogatory or
The type of names that are most likely to be approved by the IOEBA for use
as a registered kennel name are words that are distinctive, out of the
ordinary and/or a combination of words such as (Rio Bravo). Common
words often used to name a dog, initials, colors, offensive, vulgar or
tasteless words or names will not be approved or accepted as a registered
kennel name. Last names can not be approved for use as other persons
have legal right to use a last name that belongs to themselves. All
registered kennel names will show possession such as Rio Bravo's Bubbles.
a kennel name is registered, the International Olde English Bulldogge
Association will exercise reasonable care in protecting the name for the
use of the individual (s) to whom it has been registered. A
registered kennel name is protected in all positions of a dog's name.
For example, if the name "Rio Bravo" was a registered kennel
name, then the name could not appear anywhere in the name of a dog without
the written permission of the owner of that kennel name. Further,
a dog or litter cannot be registered with a kennel as its owner unless the
kennel name is registered with the IOEBA.
All registered kennel names are owner, not breed, specific.
Therefore, when a kennel name is registered, it is protected from usage in
all breeds registered by the IOEBA.
Once a kennel name is registered, it is registered for life (unless revoked by the IOEBA). A
kennel name can be passed from a parent to a child by following standard
transfer procedures. However, if an owner of a kennel name transfers
a registered kennel name out of his ownership to the ownership of a
non-related individual (s), the transferee must meet the breeding
requirements listed above.
The IOEBA does not register breeders or kennels, and the granting of a
registered kennel name does not imply endorsement of any kennel or its
stock by the International Olde English Bulldogge Association.
A registered kennel name that has been applied
for and approved by the IOEBA with the payment of the $100 registration fee
will guarantee exclusive and sole rights to a desired kennel name ONLY and
no other rights or guarantees are implied. The IOEBA reserves the right to revoke kennel name registration.
