Information and instructions for registry procedures may be found on the ISWS Registry page on this website
When you purchase a Silken puppy, you can choose the pup's name unless it has already been registered. Usually, the breeder will give you general guidelines to follow if they have any preference on naming style and be sure to include their kennel name in the name out of courtesy. Being able to put our kennel name on a dog we breed is one of the "perks" of breeding. It shows with pride what we breed in our kennels, and your puppy will always be an ambassador for his/her breeder.
You can download the Membership form from this site and fill it out. You will also need to have a current member sponsor your membership application.
You can search the owner list for those people in your area that have Silkens, go out, and meet them. If they are members of the ISWS, you can ask them to sponsor your membership.
You can find the email list on Yahoo Groups athttp://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/windhounds. They can either add you themselves or will invite you so that you can join up and listen in to the minds of the people involved in the breed.
