These awards are intended to recognize those dogs who have made valuable contributions to the breed through their involvement in a breeding program, by producing multiple offspring that have excelled in various events and competitions. Since we are a Canadian Club, our focus is on offspring which excel within Canada, however we understand and value the contributions our dogs make to breeding programs around the world.
Achievement awards are presented annually. To be eligible for an award, the owner or breeder of the dog must be a member of the Chinese Crested Club of Canada at the time the award is presented. These titles are Chinese Crested Club of Canada designations, and are not officially recognized by the Canadian Kennel Club, or any other national club.
Offspring may only be counted once, regardless of how many titles they have achieved. Proof of parentage (eg scan of registration certificate showing sire and dam) and/or proof of titles may be requested with your submission.
