Finnish Show Champion

To gain the title of Finnish Show Champion, a dog must be awarded with at least three certificates from dog shows in Finland under three different judges. At least one of these certificates must be obtained at the minimum age of 24 months, regardless of the class in which the dog has competed. In addition, there are possible breed-specific trial result requirements.

However, if a dog has obtained a Show Champion title at the minimum age of 24 months in some other country, only one certificate from Finland as well as possible additional breed-specific requirements are required for the Finnish Show Champion title. A certificate which the dog may have achieved in Finland while under the age of 24 months counts towards the title of Finnish Show Champion.

Nordic Show Champion

A dog that has obtained national show champion titles from three Nordic countries (Finland, Sweden, Norway, Iceland or Denmark) will be awarded the Nordic Show Champion title (NORD CH).

The new Nordic Show Champion title (NORDIC CH)

The new Nordic Show Champion title NORDIC CH replaces the former Nordic Show Champion title (NORD CH) which requires three national champion titles from Nordic countries. The old and the new regulations for the Nordic Show Champion title are used in parallel, and as of 1st January 2020, only the new regulations apply.

To become a Nordic Show Champion (NORDIC CH):

  • The dog must be a national show champion in the country where the dog is registered.
  • The dog must have obtained three Nordic Show Certificates from three different Nordic countries, awarded by three different judges. At least one of the Nordic Show Certificates must be received at the minimum age of 24 months.

The application for the title Nordic Show Champion must be submitted to the kennel club of the country where the dog is registered. If the dog is registered outside the Nordic countries, the application is addressed to the kennel club in the country where the last certificate was received.

Until 1st January 2020, a dog can gain both the title NORD CH as well as the title NORDIC CH.
