Awarding of A2OCS CAC:-
The A2OCS CAC is to be awarded to the Best Dog & Best Bitch (BOB/BOS) OR Dog CAC & BITCH CAC at a Championship Show organized according to the rules of the NCO. The show does not have to be a CACIB/International Show and the awarding of the A2OCS CAC will follow the rules of the NCO with regards to the awarding of the Best Dog & Best Bitch OR Dog CAC & Bitch CAC.


Qualification for the FCI International Champion Title

The only dogs/bitches which can be taken into consideration for the CACIB are those which have been awarded “EXCELLENT 1st.” A CACIB can only be awarded if a said dog/bitch has been assessed as being of superior quality.  The CACIB is not automatically and compulsorily linked to the “EXCELLENT 1st.

The RESERVE CACIB is awarded to the second best dog/bitch, which was given the grading of “Excellent”.  However, it is compulsory to award the Reserve CACIB. The Judge awards the CACIB and the RESERVE CACIB, according to the quality of the dogs.

Only one Judge for each sex and breed carries out the granting of all awards, including the CACIB and this Judge shall be appointed in advance.

The Dog/Bitch must have earned, under 3 different Judges, 4 CACIB’s (Certificat d'Aptitude au Championnat International de Beauté) no matter the number of competing dogs.

Between the first and last CACIB, a minimum period of one year and one day must have elapsed.
