To be listed in the Stud Register, a dog must have been appraised at 85% or higher. SABBS will include dogs in this prestigious register free of charge on application, and the following original certification must accompany applications:
- Females must be examined by registered veterinarians or veterinary institutions for signs of vaginal hyperplasia. Grade 1 or better is the criterion.
- Hip and elbow dysplasia: A certified radiologist must certify that the Boerboel (male or female) has a hip status of between 0:0 and 1:1 or an FCI hip status of between A1 and C2, and an elbow status of 1:1 maximum. (Contact Head Office for Penn Hip / BVA and other classification requirements.)
- Entropion/Ectropion: The dog must have been assessed by a SABBS appraiser as having either correct (+) or acceptable (o) for its eyelids.
- DNA profiles are required for all Stud Register dogs.
