Westminster Links

What does it all mean? CD, Ch., AKC... Go to this Great Website for terms and definitions of many dog related stuffs done by BlackHills Sporting Dogs. Another one from Cindy Tittle Moore lists all titles that a dog can earn and their meanings. There is also a great article called "Points and Championships" by Julian Prager. All dogs shown at Westminster must be AKC Champions. Find out what it takes to get this title.
