Rally Trial Champion. It is a lofty title with its own bragging rights, but available to any ASCA or LEP registered dog who meets the criteria. As you might imagine, it does require more than average performances over a period of time. However, it’s not complicated to keep up with your dog’s progress, and it is its own reward for a task well done with your dog in the company of friends.
Your dog may begin earning points toward the RTCH certificate as soon as the Rally Masters (RM) title has been completed. A RTCH Certificate requires having earned a minimum of 200 points total from qualifying scores in both the Excellent B and Masters B classes in the same Trial. Overall, 100 points must come from the Rally Excellent B class, including a minimum of five scores of 195 or higher and 100 points must come from the Rally Masters B class, including a minimum of five scores of 195 or higher. Points are accumulated based on the scale below.
That’s it. Your dog has earned the right to have “RTCH” in front of his or her name… documentation that your dog is the Champion you always knew was there.
