Registered Breeders Criteria

 

MAKE A COMMITMENT TO BREEDING RAGDOLLS

 

Please do not apply to become a probationary breeder until you have attended a full day at a TBRCC breeders seminar. TBRCC hold one two day seminar each year. These are the topics that are discussed:

 

  • Good husbandry and rearing kittens
  • Ragdoll genetics – colour, pattern, health
  • Choosing a breeding queen and stud boy
  • Pedigree tracing
  • Ragdoll type and assessing for breeding and/or show
  • Ragdoll registration policy, code of ethics, GCCF and club rules, contracts
  • Grooming
  • DNA testing
  • Taking your queen to stud
  • Selling your kittens.

 

Once you have attended at least one day of a breeder’s seminar you can apply to become a probationary registered breeder with TBRCC.

 

  • The Honorary Secretary will now sign off your GCCF prefix application form
  • Please complete the Registered Breeders Application form. Remember to have it proposed by a current registered breeder with TBRCC and countersigned and stamped by your vet to confirm that you have registered with them.
  • Attach the following documents: Copies of your breeding cats registration cards and pedigrees, a recent photograph of each cat for the archives, a copy of the registration document for your first litter of kittens, the appropriate fee.

 

Once you have completed a second day of the seminar and raised a litter of kittens you are then a full registered breeder with TBRCC. If you decide to attend both days of the seminar in one session you will remain as a probationary breeder for a period of 12 months.

 

     

     

ONCE YOU ARE A FULL REGISTERED BREEDER YOU MAYBE ASKED TO MENTOR SOMEONE STARTING OUT ON THEIR BREEDING OF RAGDOLLS.
