Registry of Merit (ROM) The IRWSAA wishes to recognize exceptional sires and dams whose influence on the breed is seen by their ability to produce high quality progeny that can positively impact the breed as a whole. A Registry of Merit (ROM) certificate will be awarded to those sires and dams whose get/produce have attained titles in conformation, the field, hunt tests, obedience/rally, agility and tracking. It is the responsibility of the owner(s) of the sire or dam to supply documentation to the ROM Coordinator in order to receive the ROM Certificate. SIRES: A sire’s progeny must earn 50 title points in order to qualify. No fewer than 5 and no more than 15 progeny can be used to make up the points. In order for each progeny to be counted, they must have been awarded a 3 point or higher title. Only the highest title per category counts. Progeny can earn points from titles in each category, ie conformation, field, hunt, obedience/rally, agility and tracking. Only AKC titles will be accepted.
