Introducing the American Stock Dog Registry Award of Merit Program.

Sondra and I have been planning the Award of Merit for the last year.  We have written and re-written; added and subtracted and finally believe we have a created a great program to fully recognize the hard work our competitors are pouring into their dogs and kennels.

Your awards will be sent out as they are approved and there will be acknowledgement on our website,  as well as at the year end dog show.  You will also receive a logo to add to your website and on your breeders listing.  If you don't currently have a breeders listing on our website there is a special available to get one set up.  We do get thousands of hits weekly. 

Below you will find all the information needed as well as the application form.  If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask us.
