IABCA Titles Info
The title requirements listed below are set forth and awarded by International All Breed Canine Association of America (IABCA).
The requirements for Puppy Titles are different than that of the adult dog Titles. The puppies must earn three certificates in order to receive the (appropriate for age) National Title. If the puppy receives one additional certificate (appropriate for age), the puppy may apply for the International Puppy Title (appropriate for age).
All levels of Championship Titles require 3 (three) award certificate cards (Orange Cards) of the appropriate rating for the Titles to be issued. It is possible to complete the International Title before completing the National. If an adult dog enters all three days of shows, and does well (V-1) all three days, the International Title will be earned. (The club assures the proper mix of three different judges, from at least two countries to all who enter the three days.) Title Fees: $40.00 adult or $25.00 puppy.
A National Championship title is achieved after receiving three (V-2) "NatCH" certificates.
An IABCA International Championship title is achieved after receiving 3 (three) "IABCA Award Certificate" from an IABCA International Dog Show. These certificates must be awarded by three different judges, with at least two of the judges licensed in different countries, for example: 2 Americans & 1 Canadian.
Having received either a National or International Championship a dog will be entered into this class in order to finish receiving the necessary NatCH or IntCH to have both championships, thereby, qualifying it for entry into the next higher class (Honors Class). After receiving both National and International Adult Championships a dog may move up and compete for additional higher) championship titles. Also, note that the necessary certificates for a particular championship must be filed with IABCA before entering the next highest class.)

*The dog must have earned the required Champion title in order to be shown in the class with the same name. In that class the dog works towards earning the next highest title. For Example, a dog that has earned the Honors Champion in Bronze title enters the Honors Champion in Bronze class. (In the Honors Champion in Bronze class the dog works towards earning the Honors Champion in Silver Title, that is why in the proper rating in the Honors Champion in Bronze class is HnrCH-S).
