Dam Merits

When a bitch sires a certain amount of champions, it receives a merit for the accomplishment.  Dam merits are only calculated once per week and the title isn't awarded immediately after a bitch has reached it.

Gold Dam

Dam of 20 champions.  This is one of the highest honors a bitch can achieve on Showdog.com.

Silver Dam

Dam of 10 champions.

Bronze Dam

Dam of 5 champions.
