Litter / Dog Registration
Any TDR registered breeder who has bred a litter of Tamaskan puppies from a registered sire and dam can have that litter registered with the TDR. After the litter registration process is complete, the puppies' new owners will receive their puppy's TDR Registration paperwork directly from their breeder. The registration paperwork includes the dog's personal information (date of birth, gender, microchip number, etc.) as well as a 3-generation pedigree (parents / grandparents / great-grandparents) along with the health test results for every dog listed. The type of registration depends on certain conditions:
Unrestricted / Full TDR Registration
Full Registration is issued to all Tamaskan offspring born from registered Tamaskan parents, which have met the following TDR breeding requirements:
- Both Dam and Sire must be DNA profiled by Neogen to prove parentage.
- Both Dam and Sire must be microchipped.
- Both Dam and Sire must be hip scored and elbow scored (Elbow Scoring required only after April 17, 2015) and have passing scores.
- Both Dam and Sire must have had eyes examined by a veterinary ophthalmologist and have passing scores.
- Sire must have been examined and signed off by a licensed Veterinarian that the sire was found to have two normal testicles fully descended within the scrotum.
- Both Dam and Sire must be DNA tested for Degenerative Myelopathy (DM) or cleared by parentage. At least one parent in every mating must be (DM) Clear.
Only dogs with a Full Registration, that meet the TDR breeding requirements, should be used for breeding.
Conditional TDR Registration
Conditional Registration is issued to all new outcross/foundation dogs as well litters produced by a outcross/foundation dog. Tamaskan offspring born from Full Registered Tamaskan parents, which have NOT met the aforementioned TDR breeding requirements. (For instance, in the event whereby a full registered sire and/or dam were not completely health tested prior to litter registration.) Conditional Registration can be amended, and become Full Registration. (For example, if the sire and/or dam becomes fully health tested up to the TDR breeding requirements or if the dog from a outcross/foundation dog in question meets the established TDR requirements for amending a conditional registration and pending a review by the TDR Committee.
Limited TDR Registration
Limited Registration is issued to any Tamaskan offspring, born from registered Tamaskan parents, that fails to meet the Tamaskan Breed Standard. It is also given to puppies of registered sire and/or dams where one or both dogs do not meet the TDR breeding requirements.
- Blue Eyes.
- Heterochromia (having two different color eyes).
- Piebald coat.
- A physical deformity identified prior to registration.
OR has other highly undesirable qualities that deem the dog unsuitable for breeding, as decided by the breeder and/or the TDR Committee.
All puppies from an outcross litter are given conditional registration. These puppies are registered as Tamaskan Dogs but they have an extra set of requirements to fulfil in order to qualify as breeding dogs. The first step towards becoming eligible for breeding is to obtain full registration. This can be done once the dog has reached 12+ months of age and this entails completion of the following two evaluations:
- Offspring from an outcross litter are required to undergo a third party evaluation for temperament by a dog–training professional who specializes in canine behaviour / psychology. Specifically, the dog’s temperament will need to be evaluated in relation to that of the Tamaskan Dog breed standard. The dog–training professional who conducts the evaluation will need to provide a written statement (in English) declaring that the dog is of sound temperament. The written statement must appropriately identify the dog by registered name and microchip number, and it must be signed and dated by the dog–training professional.
- Offspring from an outcross litter are required to undergo a third party evaluation for conformation by a judge or breeder who specializes in conformation. Specifically, the dog’s conformation will need to be evaluated in relation to that of the Tamaskan Dog breed standard. The judge or breeder who conducts the evaluation will need to provide a written statement (in English) declaring that the dog is of sound conformation. The written statement must appropriately identify the dog by registered name and microchip number, and it must be signed and dated by the judge or breeder.
Once these evaluation statements have been sent to the TDR, the dog may complete the mandatory health testing that is required of all breeding dogs; the full list of requirements for a TDR breeder are listedhere. Once the dog has satisfactorily passed all the required health testing (in addition to the two evaluations listed above) the dog will qualify for full registration and, as such, will be eligible for breeding.
