Please visit our "Mars Test Results Explained Page" for a detailed explanation.
The BTCA, Inc., Biewer Terrier Club of America, Inc. has been named the parent club for the Biewer Terrier by the AKC.

|Biewer Terrier Registry Information|
The Biewer Terrier Registry of America was established by the founding officers of the BTCA to maintain a reliable, accurate data base for the verification and registration of purebred Biewer Terrier dogs and puppies in America. In order to have and maintain a respectable registry, free of political complications we have opted to use an established independent firm to hold and maintain all records and pedigrees.
We are passionate about building a solid foundation for the advancement and betterment of the Biewer Terrier. For this reason all breeders submitting an application to BTRA for registration of their Biewer Terrier shall be deemed thereby to have read and agreed to be bound by the BTCA code of ethics. This code of conduct will be used to evaluate a person's right to register their dogs/puppies with BTRA.
Our goal is to give our breeders better tools to help them create superior Biewer Terrier Puppies.... the best in health, temperament, structure, and overall quality. Achieving this goal will result in those wishing to add a Biewer Terrier to their lives, having a greater chance of receiving a Biewer Terrier Puppy that will live to be a ripe old age and free from long term health issues from any of our top quality BTRA Biewer Terrier Breeders. For more in information please visit the the Biewer Terrier Registry of America website.
If you do not have a BTRA registered Biewer and wish to register with BTRA, you will have to submit to the following guidelines, to see if your dog is a purebred Biewer Terrier. Because of the registering of splitters and mix breeds by various registries, plus the lack of DNA profiling, we have had to require a testing procedure to protect the integrity and purity of the purebred Biewer Terrier.
BTRA will require your Biewer undergo the Wisdom Panel cheek swab test 4.0. This test can only be purchased at the Wisdom Panel website: http://www.wisdompanel.com/wisdom-panel-4-0/ and must be the 4.0. During the activation process, you will state you are testing for the purebred Biewer Terrier. The Mars 4.0 test will also give you a coat color analysis, so it is no longer necessary to have one done with DDC.
Once receive your Wisdom Panel results and you meet the qualifications of the BTCA, stating you have a “Biewer Terrier” you must get a DNA profile done with DDC. Click here "DDC" to go directly to the DDC site. You will need to have a DNA profile done as we require DNA profiling on all breeding dogs. Having a DNA profile is also a great identifier in case you lose your dog and need to have a positive form of identification.
DDC phone# is 1-800-625-0874
If you have any questions about this procedure, please email: BTregistryHelp@yahoo.com.
