Acceptable registries for the Thai Ridgeback at this time are the United Kennel Club (UKC), USA/Canada and Federation Cynologique Internationale (FCI), International countries. The Thai Ridgeback can also be recorded into the AKC-FSS stud book however since the breed is not fully recognized with the AKC these do not qualify as full registration papers and are not accepted by other registries as such. Please be sure your dog is FULLY registered with the UKC or FCI as well as being entered into the AKC-FSS records. Recording your dog with AKC- FSS will help the Club move the breed forward to its final goal of full recognition.
