In the Uk a dog is made up to a champion by winning three Kennel Club Challenge Certificates at three different championship shows under three different judges and gaining at least one of the CC's after reaching the age of one year old It does not matter how many they gain before this age.They must be over 1 year old to be come a champion and have the Kennel Club's official approval of this status

Here in the USA a dog needs 15 points. Points are determined by the number of enteries. Of those 15 points the dog must win 2 majors, that means winning more then one point at a time. majors are 3, 4 and 5 points. 5 points is the most a dog can win per show. It is possible to finsih a champion in 3 shows by winning three, 5 point majors. Showing begins at age 6 months. A dog must win their class(no points) then compete with each class winner to take recieve the points. Male and females compete separately and each can win points toward their championship. One dog is selected Winners Dog, Best of Winners and the other is Best of Opposite sex...one is selected Best of Breed, who then competes with all the other breed winners for Best in Show.

Here, in Lithuania, you need to get 5 CAC.
It's enough 3 CAC if at least 1 was get at international or club dog show from minimum 2 judges or 5 CAC from minimum 3 judges. One year must be elapsed between the first and the last CAC title. Young champion Lituania counts as 1 CAC, year in this case it begins from last youth winner.

Here you can find most of Europe's countries rules:

I show American Pit Bull Terriers in the USA. They need 100 points to become a Champion.

As puppies they recieve less points then the adults, these classes are seperated by gender and run in the ages of 4-6 months, 6-9 months, 9-12 months. There is a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for each class, the points are 5 for 1st place, 3 for 2nd place and 2 for 3rd place. After the puppies classes have finished the 6 first place winners compete for Best Puppy which is worth 10 points.

The adults are also broken into age groups and seperated by gender, they are 12-18 months, 18-24 months, 2-3 years, 3-5 years and 5 and Over. The points are more for adults 1st is 10 points, 2nd is 5 points and 3rd is 3 points. All of the 1st place adults (10 of them) and Best Puppy compete for Best Of Show and Best Of Opposite which are worth 15 points and 10 points.

Once they become a Champion they must compete against other CHs in the CH of CH class which is not seperated by age or gender. In this class the points are CH of CH Cup 15 points, 2nd place 10 points & 3rd place 5 points. They need 200 points for GR CH, 300 points for GR CH I, ect.

National Wins (which is once every year at the end of the year) is more points then regular shows, it is points and a half.

For weight pull its very similar. The dogs are seperated by gender and weight class. There is 1st, 2nd & 3rd in each class and they are awarded the points of 8, 5 & 3. Then there is Most Weight Pulled Per Body Pound which is an overall award worth 10 points. After the dogs reaches 100 points it is an ACE (which is a weight pull champion) and must compete against other ACE dogs in the ACE of ACE class like conformation the points in this class are worth more 10, 7 & 4 points and Most Weight Pulled Per Body Pound is 15 points. 200 will make the dog an ACE of ACE, 300 ACE of ACE I, ect.
