The SKK (Swedish Kennel Club) registry and breeding statistics

    sweden.pngThere are approximately 989,000 dogs in Sweden. All breeders who are members of the SKK register their puppies in the SKK database. SKK has 315,429 members according to FCI's 2021 report1 which also indicates in Sweden 49,507 dogs were registered by the SKK. Registration statistics from SKK for 2022 2 show 52514 dogs were registered. See SKK's 2019-2020 Annual Report 3 (in Swedish) for more information on the Club's operations and activities, including registrations figures (pg. 16). "Today, there are a total of 357 breeds or breed variants in SKK's register."

    The SKK's registers are accessible to the public, and anyone can view them on the SKK website through the Dog Data (Hunddata) internet service. The register contains pedigree data and results from various competitions, trials and tests, as well as the results of genetic health programmes administered by SKK.

    The SKK's open registries give puppy buyers the opportunity to obtain a lot of information before purchasing their puppy, and breeders the possibility to evaluate their breeding stock. According to FCI ( "all hips, eyes, and patella results are registered for all breeds. All health, DNA and mentality assessments results can be found online at In Sweden there are approximately 85% of all purebred dogs registered in Swedish Kennel Club, in some breeds."

    The internet service "SKK Hunddata" only covers SKK registered users dogs and dogs that have a competition license issued by SKK. Are you looking for an owner? for a found dog, you should instead use SKK's owner register, here is information about owners of all dogs (including mixed breeds) and cats whose ID numbers are known to SKK.

    As an additional service to breeders and breed clubs, the SKK website also features the Breeding Records service (Avelsdata) including breeding statistics for both individual dogs and for each breed as a whole. The statistics are based on results from health programmes, the dog mentality assessment, official competitions, and dog shows, as well as pedigree information. For individual dogs, individual records as well as statistics for littermates, full-sibs and offspring are available. The pedigree and coefficient of inbreeding is shown for each dog. Moreover, the service includes an option to calculate the expected inbreeding coefficient for offspring resulting from a planned mating. The population-wide information provides a general picture of the development and status of a breed as a whole, including statistics on number of registrations, dogs used for breeding, health traits, behaviour traits and average levels of inbreeding by birth year. The Breeding Records service is accessible to everyone and has become extremely popular. The transparency and opportunity to obtain information is relatively unusual from an international kennel club perspective.



    Breed-specific information (Clubs, Standards, RAS breeding strategy documents) are available via SKK's HundThe-12-national-Swedish-traditional-dog-breeds-that-are-monitored-based-on-pedigree-data.pngraser.

    SKK's Breeding Records service can be found here (the service is currently only available in Swedish).
