What is a Registry


We have chosen our registries based on the fact they support what we breed, the sizes we breed for ,
and the colors and combination or colors we breed for, now and into the future.
We register
Continental Kennel Club , International Dog Registry  , and National Rat Terrier Association

three very reputable, strongly supported registries.
All have supported the Rat Terrier breed and have supported the breeder as well as the  pet owner.
We are proud to have affiliation with all three.

The debate will never end as everybody feels they have the right answer.

 

Only you can decide which registry is the right one for you.  Your decision should be based on several factors,
the facts weighed carefully and be one that you feel comfortable with. 

 

Many registries, such as UKC, UKCI, CKC and now it seems even AKC allow hardship,
foundation or single registration
which may or may not be in the best interest of the breed depending on how you look at it.



Then you have registries that will
document a pedigree on a dog without any concrete proof that the pedigree
is the one that goes with the dog.
Your hard-earned pedigrees can be put on dogs that have no relation
to yours at all.
 
The individual Registries Breed Standard for the breed you are involved in will also play a part

in which registry you choose.
Let’s follow another situation whereas UKCI was registering
Merle Rat Terriers back in the 80’s.

 Many disallow certain colors, patterns and body styles that are

a part of the breed but have allowed themselves to be swayed into making faults and/or disqualifications

of these things in their breed standard.

To support a registry that for all intense purposes has excluded

your dogs doesn’t make a lot of sense – now does it?

 Registries that are known to change their breed

standards with the change of regiment in the
Breed Club is also one that should be carefully examined as

to whether or not it is the right Registry for you.

 Your dogs may be breed standard today and not tomorrow.

Breeders can be cruel and the worst of them, love nothing better than to critique your dogs based on what
they perceive to be the current breed standard especially when it suits their agenda.

Hardship registration OR FSS Or Foundation Stock Service can occur in many ways
Let’s follow a dog that was put up for sale on a national advertisement

website –
The owner had health issues and put the dog up for sale.

She would sell it with papers or give it away
  • without papers.
  •  Another breeder saw the ad and wanted the dog and papers to go
  • with it as well but didn’t want to pay for the dog
  • so they contacted the breeder and got the information on the dog such as Sire, Dam and so forth.
They then conspired with another person to go get the dog for free and turn it over to them whereas they, as it seems,

single registered it through UKC thus getting papers on a
dog through deceptive practices.

The person has since

passed away leaving these breeders with the feeling they got off scott-free.

 Nothing could be further from the truth as
this story continues to circulate within the Rat Terrier Community.
