Register of Merit
The Akita Club of America grants the title “ROM” Register Of Merit to current ACA members that are owners/co-owners (and as of 2014 breeders will too) of the dog/bitch that has achieved ROM status. This means that a bitch which has produced five (5) champion progeny, and a dog who has produced ten (10) champion progeny will receive their ROM. The owners can use the letters ROM after the name, although this is not an official AKC title.
The ROM database currently resides on the computer of the ROM person. The ROM database is currently in the process of being changed but questions about ROM status can be sent to:
