Hello pet lovers! Have you got your pet licensed with KCI? Not yet? Don't you know that now it is mandatory to get your dog registered with Kennel Club of India? Don't worry. It is completely a hassle free process and we are here to make it simpler by providing you complete details and link to download online application form to apply for log license in India.

Kennel Club of India (KCI) provides registration for all pet dogs in India, irrespective of its breed. Also, municipal corporations of all areas provide license for different breeds of dogs. The main motive to get your pet registered with KCI is to take preventive action on rabies and leptospirosis.

Whenever you get your dog vaccinated, the vet issues a certificate for the same. Thus it helps the authority to keep a record of vaccinated and unvaccinated dogs in that area. In case of rabies and leptospirosis outbreak in your area, your pet will be kept aside and will not be counted as a carrier/transmitter of these diseases. Not only this, it also helps you to prove your ownership over your pet. Like in case you have adopted the dog from any organization or have adopted any street dog, then you can establish your ownership on that living being. This ownership will help you in case of any theft / dispute/ missing. Moreover, a registered dog can also participate in dog shows (including Annual Dog Shows and Specialty Shows) as organized by KCI every year.

When you get your pet registered, KCI provides a microchip or microchip-based collars along with a registration certificate. This microchip has all details in this like name of the pet parent, its specifications etc. However, this chip is of no use in case your pet is lost or stolen. But if it is your love, then nobody else can claim upon it. Similarly, municipal corporations also license which a dog has to wear on its collar. Some MCs like BBMP are also planning to introduce microchip-based collars.
