Working Dog Sport

Highlights from the November 9 & 10th, 2009 AKC Board Meeting

New York, NY – Highlights from the November 2009 meeting of the AKC Board of Directors are as follows:

  • Effective December 31, 2009 – The AKC will record Working Dog titles earned in events held by existing organizations, if requested by a breed Parent Club. The organization must be approved by the AKC Performance Events Department. Titles to be recorded require Board approval. The recording of the title on an AKC pedigree will be done at the request of the dog’s owner for a fee set by the AKC. In addition, AKC clubs will be permitted to invite the other organization to hold its Working Dog event in conjunction with the AKC club’s AKC event, as long as it is clear in the publicity that the former is being held under the auspices of another organization.
