Register of Merit (ROM)

The Register of Merit (ROM) title is awarded to sires and dams of progeny competing in the conformation and performance rings.  The qualifications are different for the sire than for the dam as the sire will probably have more progeny in his life time than the dam.

Many, many thanks to the committee chairs who have spent so much time compiling and reporting on these statistics to highlight these top producing GSDs.

In order for a sire to become eligible for the ROM designation, the following requirements must be met:

a) His point total must be 100 or more.
b) The points must be earned by ten or more progeny.
c) Five of these progeny must achieve the AKC title of Champion or the Parent Club designation of ROM.

In order for a bitch to become eligible for the ROM designation, the following requirements must be met:

a) Her point total must be forty or more.
b) The points must be earned by four or more progeny.
c) Two of the progeny must achieve the AKC title of Champion or the Parent Club designation of ROM.

The top ROM sires and dams along with all inactive and new candidates are listed each year in the RedBook and in the GSD Review.
