A Kennel Club Show Certificate of Excellence (ShCEx) will be issued on receipt of an application from the registered owner(s) at the time of qualification, in respect of a dog aged 18 months and over that has obtained 50 points at general and group open shows. A minimum of 5 points must be won in group competition at show(s) judged on the group system. Only points won after 1 January 2018 may be counted towards this award. Points and shows may not be used in applications twice. If an exhibitor is found to have claimed for both the Show Certificate of Merit and the Show Certificate of Excellence using the same points, awards will be removed.
