Would like breeders here to decipher the meaning of various terms used in dog shows and their use?

Would like breeders here to decipher the meaning of various terms used in dog shows and their use? These terms are like RCC, CC, BOB, BIS, BOG etc. Would be great if it can also be explained what constitute these champions names and the full meaning eample. Ch. Vidane Leskor, Am Ch Windy Hill Kodak Moment etc Normal dog lover may not understand the logic behind these names? why the competition is intense over the titles (RCC, CC, BOB, BIS, BOG etc.) What value it holds for them? Thanks
