The MVCA is a not-for-profit organization
and all funds go to preserving, promoting, and improving the Mountain View
The MVCA has no membership fees and does
not sponsor hunts, but does recognize all Championship points obtained
at hunts and shows of registries that recognize Mountain View Curs as a
separate breed like IPDBA, and NKC, etc.. This way a Champion is
a true Champion and has competed against the best of all breeds, not just
a few of itís own breed.
Because of the exceptionally high reproducing
ability of the Mountain View Curs, the MVCA also awards titles for this.
If a dog keeps a 90% or better turn out (makes tree dogs) for two litters
it becomes a Reproducing Champion (RepCh), four litters a Grand Reproducing
Champion (GRepCh), and six litters a Supreme Grand Reproducing Champion
The MVCA Breed Advisors oversee the registry
to assure that the main goals to preserve and improve the breed are reached.
They also vote on special awards like the MVCA Hall of Fame inductees,
etc.. The MVCA also awards degrees to breeders for maintaing high excellence,
like Master Breeder, Grand Master Breeder and Supreme Grand Master Breeder.
All IPDBA permanently registered dogs recieve
a framable 5 generation pedigree with titled dogs in red, color picture
of dog, tatoo number (optional), and cirtification that the dog has been
Certified in the approved titles.

types of Certification for the Mountain View Cur Breed;
1. Certified Tree Dog (CTD)
|2. Certified Decoy Dog (CDD)||4. Drug Dog Certified (DDC)|
|3. Search/Rescue Certified (SRC)||5. Bomb Dog Certified (BDC)|
These are all recognized IPDBA
titles and all MVC's MUST have at least ONE or more Certifications, to
be permanently registered and used for breeding.
