4 to 6 Month Puppy Beginner Competition

About the Competition

The 4 to 6 Month Beginner Puppy Competition is intended to introduce new exhibitors and their puppies to the show world in a stress-free and relaxed environment. It also provides an opportunity for puppies to socialize with people and other dogs at an optimal time of their development. Puppies may earn points towards a Certificate of Merit at these competitions.

If you have not already spayed or neutered your puppy or if your puppy has been registered with a Full Registration you are eligible to enter this competition. If your puppy is already spayed or neutered or has been registered with a Limited Registration, you can participate in other exciting AKC events.
