Club Education Department

The Club Education Department is responsible for the AKC Information and Education Booth Program.

The booth presents an impressive selection of printed educational and informational materials for both the novice and the seasoned fancier. The materials offered include rule books, regulations, brochures on how to get started in various AKC events and how to be a responsible dog owner, to name a few. The booth is staffed by AKC employees with knowledge of the world of dogs and the AKC. They provide information and recommend materials on everything from how to find a puppy to how to join a club in your local area.

The booth travels to dog shows and educators', legislators', and veterinary conferences all across the nation. If your club would like to request the booth's presence at your show, please send your request to Barbara Ohmann, Director of Club Education, located in Raleigh, NC.

The AKC Booth Mission:

  • Represent the American Kennel Club in a professional and positive manner at all times.
  • Provide accurate information and supply educational material.
  • Encourage the promotion of AKC purebred dogs and AKC events at all levels of interest.
