    You are going to have to go back a long way, maybe 20 years or more, to find such a dog. Here's the first and most famous one:

    He died in 1927. I'd be curious to know who the last FC Ch dual champion was.

    This was actually discussed not long ago in the conformation section.

    You'll find more Champion/Master Hunters than you will Dual champions.

    Here's some Australian dual champions. This is the kennel both my dogs' sires come from. http://www.blackboykennels.com.au/dualchampions.html

    But not by much. In the U.S. there are/were 37 Dual Champions plus 3 AFC/CH for a total of 40. These are American dual champions and if we added British dual champions (several Banchory dogs, Knaith dogs, Staindrop Saighdear, etc.), the number would go over 50 at least. I believe there are 44 CH/MH. I calculated once (and posted on JL) and we have about 2 new CH/MH each year, so that number hopefully will continue to increase. Unfortunately, many believe that there will not be another Dual CH Labrador; last one was achieved in 1984 (the more I learn, the more I agree with that belief).

    I hope that I'll have more time in the future to compile photos from old books and magazines of Dual Champions. They were certainly amazing animals.

    I don't think there will be another Dual in this country. For one thing, getting a FTC is very very expensive. Plus most do not feel that FT serve a purpose, unlike hunting tests. This is why most people with show champions will do HT but never FT.
