If your dog does not already have papers please get him/her fixed no reputable organization will register a dog that does not have proof of heritage. If the parents were registered and for some reason you didn't get the papers you'll have to contact the breeder he/she came from
Read the sticky thread titled To breed or Not to Breed... and that will answer your questions about other things involved with breeding

OP, spend a solid 6-8 months researching what makes a good breeder and then figure it out.
Do you want to breed for money? Do you want to breed for show? What breed is best for you? sorry to ask, how old are you? Takes many many years to really understand how to do this right. I learn every single solitary day, been doing this many many years.
Why do you want to even breed? Because you heard it was "fun"...
Not being rude, asking why why why. DO NOT EVER do this because you just want to make puppies
Janders... LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO too darn funny
Ok, first do you already own the dogs you are considering breeding? If you do, you should have gotten registration papers and pedigrees with the dogs. If not, then you need to do alot of reseach about the breed you want to start with. And ask yourself why you want to breed, and are you willing and able to make the kind of commitment it requires to be a top breeder. Do not settle for being anything else than the best. It is what is best for the dogs and you.
Find a good breeder, and mentor. They should be one in the same. Make sure the breeder you are dealing with had dogs from a reputable registry like the American Kennel Club(AKC) or United Kennel Club(UKC)if you are in the United States. Make sure the dogs your mentor/breeder is breeding have health screenings. Once you find a good mentor, STICK WITH THEM. Don't think in a matter of months you know all you need to know and go off on your own. A mentor is a very valuable resorce and don't ever loose that.

He's your friend,your partner,your defender your dog.You are his life,his love,his leader. He will be yours faithful and true to the last beat of his heart.You owe it to him to worthy of such devotion
Agreed, I believe I found a mentor, I mean, she's basically 3 hours away from me..lol, its the closest I can find. lol. I'm meeting her in the middle of August at a show, make sure I like the breed, see if I'm ready etc etc. Of course I'm not getting into showing until later, I'm in college, and everyone knows you have no spare money during college. I'm really excited though. :) I get to meet a bunch of other people into showing too. Anywho, to the OP, you really really have to love the breed, and love what your doing, do you love watching dog shows? Do you want to improve the breed and be the absolute best. I want to eventually be known around the world for my dogs, if that'll happen I don't know, but I'm sure as heck going to be a top competitor in the U.S. This is one of the few things I'm sure of in my life, but I'm waiting until I can put all my time and effort into it.
