In AKC, you list only the championship titles before the name. So his "CH" before his name means he is a show (also called bench) champion. If he were to have an agility master championship (MACH), or an obedience trial championship (OTCH), or a field trial championship (FC), those would also precede the name.
The rest of the titles follow the name. You generally list the rest of the titles in the order in which the AKC recognized the sport/title. So the obedience titles go first.
When a higher level title is earned, you drop the lower level titles from the list. So for example, in obedience, Tito has earned the Companion Dog (CD), Companion Dog Excellent (CDX), Utility Dog (UD), and Utility Dog Excellent (UDX) titles but only the highest title, the UDX, gets listed.
The VER is another obedience title, it comes from the "optional titling classes" and is sort of a lesser type of title.
RA is the Rally advanced title.
Next come the field titles, he has a Junior Hunter (JH) and a Senior Hunter (SH) title, but only the SH gets listed.
Agility titles, same thing. They're listed above, but I put only the highest level after his name.
After the AKC titles come the GRCA certifications. He has a "versatility excellent certificate" (VCX) for excellence in all 3 areas...conformation, obedience, and field. He has a "working certificate excellent" (WCX) which is a GRCA field title. Also a "CCA", another GRCA title, which is a certification of conformation assessment which means he has been certified by 3 GRCA judges to be to the breed standard.
CGC is the Canine Good Citizen award, and FFX-OG is the Front and Finish Obedience Gold award for getting all of his obedience titles in a year.
Tito has also earned several UKC titles, which I list as "also" when I list his titles since UKC is the "lesser registry". Those titles are the UCH (UKC show champion), UUD (UKC Utility Dog obedience title), R01 (UKC rally level 1), UJJ (united junior jumper dock diving title), HR (UKC hunting retriever title), and finally, UKC -HIT means he earned the highest score in a UKC obedience trial.
Hope that helps!
I was wondering the same. I don't know what the majority of those acronyms after Tito's name mean.
Whatever it is, it must be good! Congratulations!
