The AKC Obedience Top 25 Ranking System

There are a number of ranking systems for Obedience dogs. The "OTCH System" is based on Obedience Trial Championship points earned in AKC competition. Rules for the assignment of OTCH points can be found on the AKC Website (use their search engine for the phrase "Obedience Regulations").

The lists below are either the top twenty-five Tervuren or all the Tervuren (if fewer than 25) who earned OTCH points in the given year. There is also a lifetime OTCH honor roll.
