The Rottweiler Club of Canada – Awards Systems

Jan. 29, 2015 – Please Note: Only dogs owned by RCC members in good standing will be eligible for Rottweiler Club of Canada Awards or recognition for notable achievements.

In an effort to recognize outstanding individuals in our breed, The Rottweiler Club of Canada has implemented a Hall of Fame award, Versatility award and Top Producer award to begin Jan. 01, 2002. These awards will be open to all Rottweilers residing in Canada who are alive on Jan. 01, 2002 with the exception of the Top Producer stats, which will be open to all such Rottweilers, living or dead, which have distinguished themselves by their titled offspring.

All awards must be applied for and copies of applicable titles and/or health clearances must be submitted by December 31st of the year being calculated. Award winners will receive documentation of their award, and be included in our newsletter and on our website.

Guidelines for each award system are outlined below. All systems will utilize a common point schedule which is at the bottom of this page.

Points for working titles are cumulative ie. CD (1) + CDX (5) = 6 points. Each Championship or working title will be awarded points, as will each BIS/Sieger title etc.

Points for health clearances will be honored regardless of the system used (ie. OFA/OVC) however, if an owner is submitting for points earned for tests not passed, copies of failing results must be submitted as well. In addition, the RCC board, at its sole discretion, may nominate a dog or person to the RCC Hall of Fame based on a single outstanding contribution to the breed.

Dogs with PEN numbers are eligible for the RCC Hall of Fame Award, RCC Honour Roll Award or the RCC Versatility Award.

RCC Hall of Fame/Honor Roll

  • Points required for RCC Hall of Fame = 15
  • Points required for RCC Honor Roll = 7

Rules:

  • Owner must be an RCC member for three consecutive years.

 For Hall of Fame only:

  • 1 discretionary point may be given for ONE of the following: CGC, TT, HIC.
  • 2 points will be awarded if dog is tested for all health (hips/elbows/heart/eyes) items.
  • 1 additional point will be given if dog has PASSED all health screens.
  • 1 point will be awarded if dog is Spayed/Neutered and has never produced a litter.

RCC Versatility Award

  • Dog/Bitch must earn at least three points in at least three of the main categories: (conformation, obedience, rally, herding, tracking, drafting*, schutzhund, agility, barn hunt (BHA titles only), chase ability, scent detection) and have 12 points in total.

  • *Drafting Titles – Other Organizations

The other drafting titles will be eligible towards Honour Roll, Hall of Fame, Versatility and Top Producing Awards. For Top Producing Awards, the RCC will not go back and retroactively adjust prior top producing years to account for this award.

 Top Producer Awards

  • Dog/Bitch will receive stated points for every title their offspring earn.
  • Awards will be given to the top producing dog and bitch each year.
  • Points will be cumulative and the Top Producers of all time will be listed on the RCC website.

  • All dogs are eligible, and dogs may be nominated posthumously.
  • Owner must be a RCC member in good standing! Dog must have resided in Canada.
  • To qualify for cumulative awards, the sire or dam must produce at least ONE litter.  One offspring must be a Champion of record and one must have obtained an advanced working title (CDX, TDX, IPO1 etc.).)
