Decker Giant Advisory Team
To Register With the National Rat Terrier Registry (NRTR)
The NRTA database tracks color genetics and other tell-tail genetic indicators such as NB-tails. The Decker Rat Terrier is being registered along with the percentage of Decker blood that is actually carried. We have listings up to 9 generations tracking back the history of our Rats on many of our dogs including the decker strain that goes back as far as the original Decker's Henry.
By registering your dogs through the NRTA you help insure the protection of the breed. We maintain records that clearly define the development of our breed. We record not only your dog's ancestry, but define a clear picture of the dogs that went into the makeup of the breed and how it has changed since its introduction to America.
