About the Designer Breed Registry
The Registry started taking form in 1977 and was established in central New Jersey in 1979 by a small group of dedicated breeders who had an
interest in exploring the possibilities of creating new and exciting breeds of dogs. Many of that small group had several breeds and saw the potential
of combining the breeds and creating magnificent working dogs, talented herding dogs, vigorous retrievers and smaller non shedding companions.
The breeding efforts attracted more breeders with other breeds who had similar interests. With ethical guidelines for breeding in place, reliable
breeding records were collected and saved. The next important step was to name the registry and in 1979 The Dog Federation was officially born
to those under 20 individuals who were pioneers into what would become the greatest dog digression in many years from the "acceptable
establishment breeder behavior".With many more breeders showing interest in developing new breeds The Dog Federation went public in 2007 and
took the name of Designer Breed Registry. Competition in all venues began but in a very different way,by video, dogs were being judged by three
licensed judges who rate the dogs not against one another but on the dogs' own merit in conformation and obedience, this was a totally new
process but very promising in that it was fair and unbiased.

that particular breed. Dogs that are shown in the conformation/show ring are judged on their conformation and movement.
DNA TEST- the mouth swab or hair sample collected to establish and record the genetic identity of the dog. Breeders registered in our Blue Ribbon
and Elite Programs have their dogs DNA profile # in our data base

testing is not HEALTH TESTING. More Information
