Dogs can achieve the level of champion once they have been awarded Three Challenge Certificates (CCs) under three different judges (a minimum of one must be won as an adult – ie over 12 months of age). The requirements to become a Champion are listed in the Reg. K.2 Kennel Club Year Book.
Being a Champion is the highest award a dog can gain and they are awarded to the very best of healthy dogs, and a dog must always be Fit for Function: Fit for Life.
