    CH 'usually' means American Kennel Club champion. UK 'usually' means a championship awarded by The Kennel Club in the United Kingdom. INT is international, which can be used to denote multiple country champion. The other abbreviations may be from Eastern European nations.

    Also of note, in different countries, there are different requirements to earning a championship title. Including many countries and clubs that award championships when there is only one dog competing. The dog can be judged to the breed standard of that kennel club, and if no severe faults are found, the dog can earn a championship even though he has never been compared to another dog in the ring.

    I hope that helps a bit!

    If the letters are at the end of the dogs name, such as "D-Bar Twenty Grand, CGC"
    that means that the dog earned his American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen title. There are many performance titles, but I am not familiar with their meaning.
