    Probably the woof part. As far as I can tell, the names tend to be "distinguished" names and as such, woofwoof would be considered diminutive.

    Yes they can, the AKC is very particular about acceptable registered names. You can use any name you want as thier "call name" but registered names you have to follow strict guidelines.

    My guess would be the USS or the length of the name with the spaces is too much.

    I would lean towards the USS being the issue. I counted only 29 characters, including spaces, and if I recall correctly, the limit is 36 (then there was the pilot program of up to 50 for an extra $10 - did that ever go anywhere??).

    Either that or the Captain part. I'd totally call or email them with your orginal name and ask them just what part is the issue before you change it though. Don't want to have to keep sending in the paper work.

    Lacy~ You have up to a year to register your pup.
