The Office will issue a registration certificate and publish the appraisal results of a particular dog only if all documentation (e.g. birth certificate, microchip number, and DNA profiles of both parents) are in hand.

Appraisal results are also published on the web as they become available, and provide valuable information on how the offspring from various Boerboel studs performed at their appraisals.
