Rottweiler Club of Canada


The Rottweiler Club of Canada
Awards Systems

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 March 31st of the following year.  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.
