Just a quick question...I'm in the process of registering my puppy, doing the online procedure. My brother insists that what the breeder has done is not appropriate (i.e. filling in a portion of the puppy's name) on the AKC registration papers. He insists that it's the OWNER'S right to name the dog, and that the breeder had no business filling in that portion of the registration papers. Since I've not registered any animal up to this point, I'm not certain what to do. Am I bound by the names that the breeder has chosen to fill in on these papers, or am I free to name my puppy whatever name I choose?
