Contender Registration

BBCR Contender Registration™ Information


What does contender registration in the BBCR mean?

Contender Dog Registration™, with the BBCR, is a option that allows all dogs, regardless of breed, to compete in events such as; weight pull trails, obedience trials, performance, testing and working events.  Dogs competing that are of pure breed lineage will be entered into the BBCR archives as such, when proof of pedigree is provided from a accepted registry. Dogs such as “Bandogs” or any other “mix” or “composite” breeds are welcome to compete and will be issued certification, but will not be classified as a known breed. Dogs that prove pure breed lineage in other breeds but are not recognised by the BBCR, will have no conformation shows to compete in, as there will be no breed standard maintained by BBCR for conformation ring events. The BBCR will accept litters produced by documented BBCR Contender Dogs and the offspring will be issued certificate of registration, noting ancestors where applicable.  The purpose of accepting and tracking pedigrees on these Contender Litters is not to establish these breeds as BBCR conformation breeds, but more over to track the lineage and accomplishments of their sire and dam in areas of working, temperament and drive. Contender Registration Certificates, issued by the BBCR, do not imply the dog is recognized as a breed or that the dog is “purebred”.  BBCR Contender Certificates are issued for the sole purpose of tracking the achievements of individual dogs competing for titles within our organization.
