**FCI/CFC CHAMPIONSHIP SHOWS**
Following the Championship class, a dog can move up into the Elite level of competition (similar to the Grand Championship class in the CKC) where more stringent requirements apply, including the need for 4 CACSC cards with an Excellent rating. Unlike Open, for a Elite Championship (CACSC) award, only one CACSC card is awarded per Champion class bitch, and Champion class male in the breed, no matter the number of entries within the breed. Echo moved into Elite on the last show class of the weekend, and was awarded her first CACSC card at only 26 months of age:
April 20, 2014: CACSC #1 (Excellent rating/Elite) under judge Cathy Delmar (Ireland)
[Note: To achieve a Championship in Open, there must be 3 ratings of "Excellent", and 3 cards called CACS (Certificate of Aptitude for excellent Conformity to the Standard - CACS) to qualify under FCI regulations].
