Title KC CH English Champion """To become a champion. we are required to win 3 Challenge Certificates (CC's) under 3 different judges. The third or qualifying CC must be after the dog is 12 months of age. All class winners are eligible to challenge for the CC. and there are no separate classes for Champions. It is not unusual for unlucky dogs to have multiple Reserve CC's behind the current breed star. and not become a champion. In 2007 & 2008. CC's for each sex will be awarded at 5 shows. and a single CC for BOB at 2 shows. so making up a champion will be a considerable achievement. As the number of CC's is determined by a number of Registrations / Show entries formula. it may be several years before there is a significant increase in this allocation.""- Sue Tweedie PWD-L 2007 03 11" England
