XV HOW can I get a copy of the NEW Rat Terrier Book? See the New Rat Terrier Book
XVI. WHY does Universal verify
their Toy Rat Terriers, ? (See Verifications, Certifications and
We are the only registry that verifies our Toy Rat Terriers because:
1. It is difficult to tell the difference between a Toy Fox Terrier and a Toy Rat Terrier.
2. Only Universal has the main database of Rat Terriers in the world and can check the pedigree of any Rat Terrier litter or
any dog to verify whether it is a Toy Fox Terrier or a Toy Rat Terrier.
3.We believe, that if a registry does not verify all their Toy Rat Terriers, then there may always be confusion over the true breed of that dog. Also the registration of that dog is certainly less valuable. This is due to the fact that the Toy Fox Terrier is one of the breeds which came from the Rat Terrier.
4. We believe, unless all registries verify their Toy Rat Terriers, there is room for error in the registration process.
Improper verification and registration of any breed would diminish, divide or degrade any breed. Universal maintains many high standards, verifications, certifications and typing systems adding to the value of your dog's registration. Therefore registration papers from Universal are certainly more valuable then many other papers in the industry. This is due to the fact that Universal verifies its Toy Rat Terriers and has many other systems that maintain, build and promote the registration of all our breeds. The value of Rat Terriers everywhere has increased, due to all the many things Universal has built up and improved for the Rat Terrier. More and more people all over the world are asking for papers from Universal.
