What are those initials in front of and in back of the names?

The letters that you may see in front of a dogs registered name indicate an AKC title.  Here are a few: 

CH Champion - Dogs must acquire 15 points in conformation dog shows to receive the title of Champion.
FC Field Champion - A prestigious award for doing what Labradors do, retrieving.
AFC American Field Champion - A prestigious award that designates that the award is "American".
DC Dual Champion - A dog with CH can obtain a DC after is has also been awarded the title of FC.
TC Triple Champion - A dog with DC who has obtained Obedience Trial Champion (OTCH), Tracking Champion (CT), or Agility Champion (MACH).

Here are a few suffixes that you might see behind a Labrador's registered name.

CD Companion Dog - An Obedience title won after receiving qualifying scores in at least three "novice" obedience trials.
CDX Companion Dog Excellent - An Obedience title won after receiving qualifying scores in at least three "open" obedience trials.
JH Junior Hunter - The dog must receive qualifying scores at 4 licensed tests.
SH Senior Hunter - Must receive qualifying scores at 5 licensed tests. If the dog already has received a JH, the dog need only qualify 4 times.
