Record Of Merit Program

USASA recognizes those sires and dams that have produced titled offspring through the Record of Merit Program. It consists of three sections:

Record of Merit (ROM) recognizes sires and dams that have produced titled offspring in Conformation, Obedience/Rally, or Performance. There are three levels based on the number of titled offspring from one category.

Record of Merit Excellent (ROMX) recognizes sires and dams that have produced titled offspring in all three categories: Conformation, Obedience/Rally, and Performance. There are three levels of ROMX based on the number of titled offspring in each category.

Hall of Fame Excellent (HOFX) recognizes sires and dams that have completed all six categories (ROM I, ROM II, ROM III, ROMX I, ROMX II, and ROMX III). There are three levels of the HOFX program. Level one, or HOFX I, requires the sire or dam to have earned ROMX III as well as one category of ROM III. Level two, or HOFX II, requires the sire or dam to have earned ROMX III as well as two categories of ROM III. Level three, or HOFX III, requires the sire or dam to have earned ROMX III as well as all three categories of ROM III.
