Register of Merit Award Criteria

These awards are open to all Beaucerons, living or dead, that have distinguished themselves by their titled offspring and are owned or co-owned by current American Beauceron Club members. As production points accumulate (based on the get’s accomplishments), the individual sire or dam may apply to be upgraded to the next higher award.
