has done. We want people to know that this is your association and
offers you the opportunity to participate. The Rat Terrier Community is the organization
and play a vital role in the success of it at all levels. From cabinet
members, Regional Directors, State inspectors, whether
you have one Rat Terrier or many. The bottom line is to promote the breed
for what it is, A loving creature.

instilling fairness by having established a standard for how the breed
is and was. Keeping the breed in a form as it now exists, with its variations
and variety's always in mind. There are two Body Styles. Class A for the square long leg type and Class B for the
short legged longer body type (See Standards)
We believe the hunters need this type for their important functional qualities
not to mention the great companions they make.
will also be on recording backgrounds to further good lines and to offer
or written pedigrees through the ( NRTR) National Rat Terrier
Registry, on your dogs as their Breed Club. We

the breed in its pure form.
Great consideration is taken to listen
to community input and transfer it out to the public, whether they agree with
us or they chastise us. You will see the results.
