The German Coolie World Registry is not a club; it is a scientifically based, incorporated association dedicated to the preservation of the genetic diversity and health of the German Coolie/Australian Koolie as they become more popular worldwide. The registry assists breeders by keeping databases of pedigrees and DNA records as well as issuing reports on the coefficient of inbreeding (COI), relatedness, ancestor loss coefficients (AKV) and other computations to assist breeders with projected or hypothetical crosses. Certificates of Registration are issued to approved breeders or owners with a Certificate of Record from an approved breeder.

Breeders seeking to join the GCWR are reviewed by an advisory board and those found to be dedicated to the mission of the registry will be eligible for the services offered. All dogs of coolie decent from Australia which are owned or bred by our breeders may be recorded and registered with the association. The association promotes scientific research and supports breeders and owners who desire to use science to preserve and promote the breed.

This Association encourages all coolie owners to seek out and join a C(K)oolie Club which promotes the breed and hosts educational events, social events and competitions. The Koolie Club of Australia is a membership kennel club and a native registry. Charters and activities are currently being planned for the Koolie Club of America and the Coolie Club of Canada. See the Club activity page for links and information about these groups who educate and promote the breed. All coolie owners and those interested in the breed are welcome to join the FB group for the registry at https://www.facebook.com/groups/500690320113832
