How to register your pure bred Biewer Terrier with the American Kennel Club (AKC)
whose sire and/or dam (parents) are not recorded in the AKC FSS.
Update: 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.
1. Order the new MARS 4.0 test here:
http://www.wisdompanel.com for ($84.99)
Follow the instructions and send the test back to MARS.
Wait 2 weeks for the test results to be emailed to you.
If your MARS 3.0 test result states that your dog is a pure Biewer Terrier then follow the next step.
2. Order a Canine DNA Profiling here
3. Order a coat color test for B locus (brown, chocolate, liver) and E Locus (yellow, red) here:
https://vetdnacenter.com/cart/?species=Canine&product=Disease&breedId=18 (for $58)
Wait for the test results to be emailed to you. It doesn’t matter if your Biewer carries the yellow gene or the chocolate gene. The test result for the coat colors has to mailed to BTRA with the other paperwork.
If you call or email DDC before you place your order, you might get a special offer because you are buying 3 tests. (DNA Profile, D-Locus Test and E-Locus Test)
If your dog’s MARS test result shows at least 75% Biewer Terrier (only one side of the certificate shows 1 Yorkshire Terrier). (No other breeds are allowed to appear in the test result) – then you are good to start the BTRA registration process. Once your dog is BTRA registered, it can be AKC registered.
4. Download the BTRA single dog application here:
http://www.biewerterrierregistry.com/BTRA_single_dog_registration.pdf and follow the instructions here:
Take some pictures of your Biewer Terrier and email them together with the application an the test results to the BTRA Registry.
If you have received your BTRA Registration Certificate and Pedigree for your pure bred Biewer Terrier you are good to start the AKC registration and follow the next step.
5. Download the AKC Stock Foundation Application here:

AKC will send you your Stock Foundation Registration Certificate.
