K9DATA.COM is an open database for pedigree information on Golden Retrievers and Labrador Retrievers, run by K9data LLC.  Many breed fanciers maintain their own pedigree databases for pedigree research.  This web site functions as a similar tool, except that it is editable by many breeders and can be viewed by anybody.  By combining our resources, we can accumulate a much larger set of data in a shorter period of time than any one breeder working independently.

K9DATA.COM is not a registry.  Registries are organizations like the AKC, UKC, CKC, KC, etc., which register dogs  for a fee and keep extensive pedigree records.  K9DATA.COM is merely a database.  Most of the dogs in this database are probably registered with one or more registries, or they may not be registered at all.  Pedigree information may be entered by any registered user, not just the owner or breeder of the dog.  We do not review the information and we make absolutely no claims as to its accuracy.  K9DATA.COM is a good place to start your pedigree research, but if accuracy of information is important, you should independently verify the accuracy of the information you find.

To verify the accuracy of pedigree and other information, here are some useful sources:

By using this site, you agree not to publish, post, upload or disseminate any inappropriate, profane, defamatory or unlawful information.

If, when using this site, you discover information that is incorrect, please either correct it yourself (if you have access) or contact the administrator at amyr@k9data.com.


The only personal data K9data collects is your name and email address, when you register. K9data does not share this information with any third party. You can change or delete your personal data at any time by going to the home page and clicking [Your Account] at the top right, and then clicking "Change Personal Information."

Your name could also appear as the owner or breeder of a dog. If you don't want your name to appear on a dog's pedigree page, you can delete it yourself or ask an administrator to remove it.

Finally, if you make additions or changes to the database, your name will appear in the change history alongside those changes. This is to provide accountability so that people don't make malicious changes under cover of anonymity.
