Petlog have come up with a new charging model, and it may change again soon...
We collect a fee for petlog registration, that puts the chip and first owner/keeper on their system. By law that now has to be the breeder if it is a puppy. So that first registration is free and cheap and paid for.
Then it gets bit complex:
If the puppy is KC registered from a KC registered breeder there is a system where the new owners can register their ownership at no further charge.
A new owner of a non KC registered puppy can register on basic for £6.
All new registrations received are set to basic – if the customer choses to remain on basic they will not incur any further charges for the lifetime of their pet as long as they don’t change address.
Should they move they will be offered the choice - change of address currently £10, or the option to take the lifetime Petlog premium package at the charge of £17. If the customer choses the £10 option and then moves again, they will be charged £10 and offered the Petlog Premium package again and so this will go on
Should the customer opt for the Petlog Premium lifetime package then they will not incur any further charges for the life of the pet whilst in their keepership, meaning they can update the database as many times as they like at no extra cost.
Should a keeper decide to sell their pet then: The new keeper has the option to Transfer of Keepership (TOK) at basic for £6, meaning should they move then they will incur a charge of £10 for their change of address each time they move same as with first registration, however should they opt of Petlog Premium for £17 at the time of TOK they will not incur any charges for the life of the pet whilst in their keepership.
There is more info on this under petlog in the About menu above. Its important that you consider the reliability and long term stability of the database. Nobody will return your beloved pet if the database is unreliable.
