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.

Did you know?
The figure 8 exercise requires the team to heel in a figure 8 pattern either on or off leash. Generally two of the ring stewards will assist the judge with this exercise by acting as "posts", standing 8 feet apart, that the team walks around to form the loops of the figure 8.
