How Do I register my OEB?
If you have puppy papers you fill in
the form & mail it along with payment to the address
listed on the form. If you have an adult that is
currently registered with another registry you fill out
a single dog registration application, include copies of
your current registration and pedigree and mail it to
the address listed on the single dog registration
application. If you have a litter that you wish to
register with the NBA you may use our

either parent is not registered through the NBA, you
will need to
contact the NBA to discuss your options.

What Is The Difference Between The
OEB & The EB?
The OEB is a healthier and more
athletic dog. They are free breeding, free whelping and
are capable of athletic activity. The OEB is built to
function and is capable of running, swimming and taking
long walks. The OEB is a recreation of the 18th century
bulldog once used in the sport of bull-baiting. As
bull-baiting was banned, show fanciers bred the Old
Bulldog down to create a particular look for the show
ring, thus creating the modern AKC Bulldog. The health
of the AKC Bulldog reflects the focus on looks and
the negligence of function. The Olde English Bulldogge was
bred for health and function.
