Full Answer

The ACA is not one of the Domestic Registry Organizations accepted by the American Kennel Club (AKC) for application to the AKC's own registry; however, dogs registered with the AKC can be cross-registered with the ACA afterward. The ACA considers itself a service registry and offers a worldwide lost-and-found tracking service as well as seminars, genetic tracking and the usual breed exhibitions and trials.

    How do you find out how old your dog is?

    A:

    While it's not possible to determine precisely how old a dog is, it is possible to make a fairly accurate estimate of its age by examining the condition of the dog's teeth. In addition, a veterinarian may be able to provide an even more accurate guess by means of a physical exam or running a series of tests to look at the dog's joints, bones, muscles and organs.
