In some countries, the most difficult Conformation title for an
Italian Greyhound to obtain is the Grand Championship Excellent.
In Canada, a dog is required to get at least 1 Best in Show or Best
in National Specialty Show, 3 Group 1s, and 100 points (with a BIS = 10, Gr 1 = 5, Gr 2 = 4, Gr 3 = 3, Gr 4 = 2)
PLUS they have to get a non-conformation CKC title.
The Australian one, as of Jan 2010, they have to get 1000 points
PLUS a BIS or 4 X Best in Group or 4 X 25 point Challenges. Challenges are awarded points by 5 points for
winning the Challenge, plus 1 point for every dog of that sex defeated. The BOB dog also gets 1 point for
every dog of the opposite sex as well. They have no Specials class, only dogs and bitches, so there is only
potentially 2 dogs to get CC points.
Canadian and Australian GCh can take years to achieve. They
are not to be confused with American Kennel Club Grand Championships which can be obtained in one circuit (with the
right competition!) AKC GCh titles are definitely achievements to be proud of, but are not nearly on the same
We are so very proud to have bred, owned and/or handled the
following Grand Champions! Posh is the first Grand Champion IG in Canada! Wyatt is the first (and still
ONLY) Canadian IG to get an Australian Grand Championship!
