Yes......I hope it is pretty common knowledge that titers DO show immunity but lack of titers does not mean the dog is susceptible. The body can still have a rapid and effective immune response without circulating antibodies.
That said, I know government agencies accept titers for humans and I have mine on file for the dog if I am challenged for immunization status. I went back to college with my rubella titer in hand because I did not want to get the shot and my daughter got her chickenpox titer to go back to school because now they want THAT or they want to immunize you for a disease you already had. FWIW my titer from a 1960 case of German Measles was still high in 1990.
