Record of Merit (ROM) Requirments

 

ROM Requirements

To be nominated for the RECORD OF MERIT (ROM) all dogs and bitches must be registered with AKC, and only AKC titles will be recognized. The progeny must reflect the versatility of the breed by acquiring titles from both field and bench. Points will be awarded for the various titles reflecting the degree of difficulty in attaining said title. It will be further noted that OFA Hip Certification will be required for ALL dogs or bitches whelped after January 1, 1995, including the nominee.

DOGS:

1) The nominee must submit a list of at least 10 titled offspring having titles from both bench and field.

 The list of 10 or more, shall contain a minimum or 8 bench champions (CH), and 3 of the 10 must have field titles (FC,AFC,MH,SH,JH).

OR

2) 3 of the 10 offspring must have field titles (FC,AFC,MH), and 3 of the 10 must have bench titles (CH,CD,OA). 1 of the 10 must be a bench champion (CH).

 AND

3)The points must equal 50 or more for either option 1 or option 2.

BITCHES:

1) The nominee must submit a list of at least 7 titled offspring having titles from both bench and field.

 The list of 7 or more, shall contain a minimum of 4 bench champions (CH), and 2 of the 7 must have field titles (FC,AFC,MH,SH,JH).

OR

2) 1 of the 7 offspring must have a field title (FC,AFC,MH), and 2 of 7 must have bench titles (CH,CD,OA). 1 of the 7 must be a bench champion (CH).

 AND

3) The points must total 35 or more for either option 1 or option 2.

 

SUPERIOR ROM:

A dog or bitch is eligible for a Superior ROM if in addition to the fundamental requirements of the ROM, if he or she has produced both field and show champions (FC,AFC,MH,CH) or a BIS.

BIS: Verification for a Best In Show shall be a photo of the dog or bitch, winning the award, sent in either hard copy or digitally to the ROM Coordinator, with the nominee’s application.

SUPREME ROM:

This title is reserved for those outstanding dogs or bitches that in addition to attaining their ROM, have also produced a Dual Champion (DC).

Point Values: Please note that once an animal earns a greater title than the one he or she previously held (ie: from JH to SH or MH…SH to MH…JH to MH…or from CD to CDX , etc) AKC DOES NOT recognize the lesser title anymore: therefore an animal IS NOT “Champion Jolly Good Lad JH, SH” he becomes “Champion Jolly Good Lad SH.” And, since an animal can go straight to these more complex titles, without passing through the lesser titles, no points shall be given for these lesser titles, once the greater title is received. In other words, Champion Jolly Good Lad SH, in the example above, would only be awarded 5 points for the bench championship, and 5 points for the Senior Hunter…he would not be allowed to accrue the additional point for the prior Junior Hunter.
