    DefaultExplanation of terms? BIS BISS?

    I admit I don't know anything about showing/obedience dogs and I wouldn't ask for a full explanation because I'm sure it's involved. I was wondering though if someone could explain what BIS BISS means to me. Yukon's father was (or is) a champion and I was wondering what that denoted. I tried googling and it just brought up specific dogs.

    Thank you!

    kate got it right, and both of those are BIG accomplishments, particularly the BISS.
