Member Services Instructions

 

Members can find the necessary forms on the website www.nabba-inc.com under “Members Area”. 

Litter Announcement

Members must submit a litter announcement to receive Birth Certificates for pups produced from a registered dam and sire.  If either the dam or sire has not been appraised and registered with NABBA, SABT, EBBASA or Boerboel International,  no Birth Certificates will be issued.  Go to the website, fill in the required information.  Please review all information for accuracy before submitting.  Additional information should be entered in the “comment” section.   When the litter announcement is submitted, an invoice will be sent to the member for payment.  When payment is received, the Birth Certificates will be processed and mailed to the member from the office in North America.

 

Stud Service Certificate

 

In cases where the stud does not belong to owner of the dam, a “Stud Service Certificate” must be completed and submitted by the stud’s owner.  Natural covers and/or artificial insemination using semen from an outside male require the submission of a Stud Service Certificate.  A Stud Service Certificate must accompany the Litter Announcement in order for birth certificates to be processed.

.

If the owner of the stud is not a member of NABBA, he/she must submit via email the NABBA registered name and registration number of the stud used and the female of the breeder along with the mating date(s) to the office in North America.

 

No Birth Certificates will be processed until the Stud Service Certificate is received.

Change of Ownership

The seller of the Boerboel, not the buyer, submits the request for Change of Ownership.   Should the seller not be a member of NABBA, the office will accept an email with the name and address of seller, name and address of buyer, the Boerboel’s registered name, registry name and registration number.  

 

Video Appraisal

 

From time to time, it becomes necessary for a member to request a video appraisal.  Each appraisal video request is reviewed and, if warranted, will be allowed.  The video appraisal was established for members with hardship, not as a convenience.  After you have approval for a video appraisal, you may proceed to record the video. 

 

Once you have finished the video (following the guidelines and requirements on the website), upload the video to YouTube at www.youtube.com.    Fill out the form “Request for Video Appraisal” and add the Video URL.  At the same time, submit the original birth certificate via postal service and a PDF copy via email along with the dog’s microchip number to the office for North America.   Should the video be incomplete, you will be notified and another video will be required. 

 

A video appraisal does not eliminate the need for a proper appraisal.  Only dogs from registered parents will be allowed and must meet a minimum 75% appraisal score to receive a registration.  Members will be able to register one litter from a video appraisal.  However, at the next appraisal tour, the dog must be presented for proper appraisal.  If not, the registration for the dog that was video appraised will be voided.  If a litter was announced, those birth certificates will remain.  Without the proper appraisal, no other litters will be announced. 

 

For our members that live in the Islands (Caribbean, St. Kitts, etc.), Alaska or Northern Canada,

we understand the costs for flights is not feasible.  Therefore Video appraisals will be available to you without having to present your Boerboel(s) for proper appraisal.  Your Boerboel’s will be considered properly appraised providing the dog(s) meet the requirements.

 

 

Appraisal

 

In order to present your Boerboel for appraisal, you must be a member of NABBA.  Boerboels may be presented for appraisal from the age of 12 months.  When enrolling a dog for appraisal or reappraisal, you must submit the original Birth Certificate or Registration Certificate.   Make a copy of either the Birth Certificate or Registration Certificate for your files.

 

 NABBA will accept dogs at an appraisal venue from other registries (SABT, EBBASA, BI, AKC).  The owner must submit a birth certificate or registration. 

 

Members are notified of the location and dates of appraisal venues.  It is suggested that members pre-register and pay prior to the venue date.   Venues are determined on interest from our members.  If little or no interest in a particular venue, then that venue will be cancelled.
