What Is The Difference Between "AND" vs "OR" partnerships?

UKC recognizes the nature of a co-ownership as either an "AND" or an "OR" partnership. An "OR" partnership means either the Owner or the Co-Owner can sell, transfer or register a litter out of the dog. This means either the Owner or Co-Owner may sign the paperwork. An "AND" partnership means it will take both the Owner and Co-Owner, to sell, transfer or register a litter out of the dog. This means both the Owner and Co-Owner must sign the paperwork.

When registering a dog in co-ownership you will be asked to indicate the nature of the co-ownership on the registration application, which confirms whether or not the signatures of both the owner and co-owner will be required to sell, transfer, or register a litter out of the dog. If left blank, both signatures will be required.

Attention:
Sole Signatory Registration will continue to be optional, if received by UKC on or before April 14, 2013. Beginning April 15, 2013, the Sole Signatory Registration will be mandatory, and a Sole Signatory will then be required for all litters and dogs registered to more than one individual. Any “and/or” partnerships established prior to April 15, 2013, will remain in effect and will continue to hold true for that dog until said dog’s UKC Registration Record is changed.
