A.  Competition for the Champion title: 
Competition is defined as more than one male/female entered and shown in any one of the regular classes (Puppy I, Puppy II, Junior, Senior or Veteran classes).

If a judge withholds a first-place ribbon and awards a dog a second, third place ribbon in a class of one, this dog will count as having competed and shall count as competition.

If a judge withholds all awards from the dog, then it shall not count as competition.

Dogs that are excused or disqualified do not count as competition.

A dog that is judged in a class, but whose entry is subsequently determined to be invalid, shall count as competition.

1.  Earning a competition win by going Best Male or Best Female:
If only one male or female dog is entered in the regular classes, that dog may earn championship points, but such wins do not count as wins with competition.

However, if a class winner is selected as Best Male or Best Female, that counts as a win with competition.

2.  Earning a competition win by going Best of Breed:
A Best Male or Best Female who has no competition of the same or opposite sex in the regular classes may still earn a win with competition by defeating a Champion or Grand Champion of either sex for Best of Breed.

3.  Earning a competition win by winning Best in Show:
At shows where Best in Show (multi-breed) competition is offered, a Best Male or Best Female with no competition in its breed may still earn a win with competition by winning Best in Show at a Multi-Breed Show.

Requirements for Grand Champion title:

To earn a UCA Grand Champion (GR. CH.) title, a dog must:

1.  Win the Champion class at least three times with competition,

2.  and Win the Champion class under at least two different UCA-licensed Judges.

A. Competition for the Grand Champion title: 
Competition is defined as at least three dogs correctly entered and shown in the Champion class of either sex.


Order of Judging:

Regular class Males are judged before regular class Females.

Regular class males:  Puppy I, Puppy II, Junior, Senior, Veteran, Best Male

Regular class females: 
Puppy I, Puppy II, Junior, Senior, Veteran, Best Female

After Best Female is determined the Best of Breed, Champion, Grand Champion and Best of Show (if applicable) classes are judged.
