The future of the Spinone rests with the sires and dams who have demonstrated their ability to provide for successive generations. In recognition of their contributions to the breed,SCOA awards the Registry of Merit (ROM) Certificate to those Spinone whose offspring reflect the breed’s character and purpose as evidenced by the titles achieved.
There are four types of ROM. C-ROM for Conformation, F- ROM for Field, P -ROM for Performance Even ts and V- ROM for Versatility.
Application for a Performance Registry of Merit:
The Performance Registry of Merit recognizes the sire or dam that meets P -ROM qualifications.
P- ROM requirements :
Sire : Produced no less than five (5) progeny equaling a total of ten (10) titles from AKC obedience, rally, agility and/ or tracking .
Dam : Produced no less than three (3) progeny equaling a total of six (6) titles from AKC obedience, rally, agility and/or tracking .
How to Count AKC Obedience, Rally , Agility and/or Tracking Titles:
Each AKC obedience title counts as one title. A progeny who earns an AKC CD title and goes on to achieve an AKC CDX title wou ld count as two titles. The same progeny then earning an AKC UD would count as three titles and further earning an AKC UDX would count as four titles.
Each AKC rally title is counted as one title. A progeny who earns an AKC RN title and goes on to achieve an AKC RA title would count as two titles . The same progeny then earning an AKC RE would count as three titles and further earn ing an AKC RAE would count as four titles.
Each AKC agility title is counted as one title. A progeny who earns an AKC NA would count as one title and t he same progeny also achieving an AKC NAJ would count as two titles. That progeny continuing on in AKC a gility and earning successive titles would count each additional title earned as one title to add to pr evious titles already achieved.
Each AKC tracking title is counted as one title. A progeny who earns an AKC TD would count as one title and the same progeny also achieving an AKC TDX would count as two titles. That progeny continuing on in AKC tracking and earning successive titles would count each additional title earned as one title to add to previous titles already achieved.
An application must include sire or dam’s AKC registered name, AKC registration number and list of progeny identified by AKC registered name and AKC registration number along with earned AKC obedience, rally, agility and/or tracking titles.
