Various organizations like the AKC, breed clubs, and other societies issue titles for dogs to note their achievements. Titles are designated by abbreviations listed before or after the dog’s name. The titles for the most difficult accomplishments, like championships, are listed before the name, and the rest afterwards.

This section lists the various titles mentioned elsewhere on this site (it’s not meant to be an exhaustive list of all possible titles). See the list on the right. For each title abbreviation, a brief description is given along with one or more links to more information on the topic.
