ADRK and RKNA share the common goals to preserve the Rottweiler in association with ADRK Breed and Performance standards.

RKNA offers the following activities to members and member clubs:

  • Scorebooks recognized and approved by ADRK (ie this means the RKNA scorebook can be used at ADRK trials and breed surveys in Germany)
  • FCI  scorebooks via the ADRK. As the scorebooks carry the FCI seal on the face, no IPO organization in the world can decline the scorebook or refuse to accept the score recorded therein. 
  • RKNA trial results can be recorded in ADRK dog data base and on ADRK & FCI pedigrees
  • Release of conformation judges licensed with ADRK, FCI to RKNA shows & breed tests
  • Release of IPO judges licensed with ADRK, DVG Germany & FCI to IPO trials.
  • RKNA is the only IPO organization in USA & Canada where trial results are recognized by ADRK and titles do not have to be redone to trial at a higher degree. For recognition, the following conditions must be met: (1) the title must be earned at a RKNA trial, (2) the dog must carry either a RKNA or ADRK scorebook, (3) the dog must be a registered Rottweiler.
