The American Beauceron Club Versatility Bronze, Silver and Gold titles are designed to spotlight the dog-handler teams who work with one another in a variety of events. Eligible dogs must be owned or co-owned by current Club members.
Titles are awarded in recognition of the accomplishments of the dog/handler in a range of activities: Conformation, Obedience, Schutzhund, Agility, Herding, and other activities in which certification or titles are earned. All titles must be earned or awarded by nationally recognized organizations.
When submitting your Application for a Versatility Award, attach copies of the relevant certification document. If you’re unable to scan and upload, documents can be mailed to the Breed Certification Chair. These will be retained in ABC’s files and will not be returned. Please do not send original documents.

|C: Tracking||TD||TDX / VST||TDX / VST|
|D: Schutzhund||SchH I||SchH II||SchH III|
|E: Agility||NA / NAJ||OA / OAJ||AX / AXJ|
|J: Temperament||(Optional) Max of 2 Points||Minimum of 1|
|K: Health||Min 1 Point|
|Versatility Points (Minimum, from at least 3 categories A-I)||10||15||20|
|Previous Award Earned||Bronze||Silver|
Points in all categories are cumulative.
So, if a dog has a UD, he has a total of 9 points: CD (2pts), CDX (3pts), UD (4pts).
Points must be earned in at least three (3) categories selected from Categories A – I.
Full points are not awarded for additional titles at the same level. These are, instead, awarded 1 additional point. (Versatility is showing the dog has mastered many areas)
So, if the dog has attained an AKC CH and then a UKC CH the dog would have 4 points for the AKC CH and an additional 1 point for the UKC CH title.
Points are cumulative from one award level to the next.
So, 10 points earned for the Bronze will be counted when assessing the qualification for the Silver Award.
