The owners of Hall of Fame producers are not recorded as they may change over the lifetime of the dog, and the ASDCA has no means of determining the ownership of an untitled top producer. Breeders are also not listed. The titles (such as championship or performance titles) of Hall of Fame producers are not recorded as new titles can be achieved throughout the lifetime of the dog. Induction into the Hall of Fame is for all Anatolian Shepherd Dogs, whether or not they are owned by ASDCA members, but award certificates are issued to ASDCA members only.
