Versatility Register of Merit Application

The Versatility Register of Merit (VROM) celebrates the versatility and working aspects of our breed and rewards sires and dams for producing a specific number of Versatility or Versatility Excellent offspring. To receive this award, a BTCA member must submit the application to a designate of the Versatility Committee who will verify the record of the get and the required health clearances of the sire/dam being honored. Please note that a required percentage of the get must have achieved a field title. The owner of the VROM recipient will receive an engraved medallion and a certificate at the annual Awards Banquet.
