OTCH: Obedience Trial Champion

Dogs that have already won the UD title may begin to compete for championship points 100 points are required for championship. This is incredibly difficult. For instance, at a recent trial there were 20 dogs in Utility B, of which six were already OTCH. If your dog won first in this class, he would win 14 points. Most OTCH dogs seem to be about five years old and have been at class three to five times a week since they were a year old, with additional home practice and shows.
