I would get at least a 4 generation ped as it will allow you to quickly refrence your dogs past. You dont really need a show or id card, it basically just has all you dogs registration numbers and name on it for quick refrence when you are filling out show forms, not necessary.
Tube mailing is nice as it keeps your pedigree from getting bent and creased in the mail.
