This page is dedicated to dogs who are resident in Scotland, who have achieved their Champion title in the UK. 

To achieve this title in the UK a dog must win 3 Challenge Certificates under 3 different judges - this may sound easier than it actually is considering the number of Ridgebacks shown in this country and the limited number of Championship Shows per annum.

Please send us a photograph(s) if your dog meets the above criteria to have your dog included
