Dear AKC RDO Day Event Coordinator:

Thank you for holding an event on behalf of AKC Responsible Dog Ownership Day. This year, we have designed an online program to allow you to register your event with the AKC – and make any updates between now and your event day – via your own user ID and password. We encourage you to include as many event details as possible, and add additional information as soon as it becomes available. Events will not be posted to the AKC web site until all fields have been completed and approved by the AKC Communications Department.

To create your event coordinator account, please click on the link below and follow the directions to “Create an Account.”

Once you designate a user ID and password, you will receive an e-mail from asking you to activate your account. Just click the provided link and your account will be activated! You will then be able to enter your AKC RDO Day event details. You may return to your event entry form at any time to add additional information – simply visit the "Event Coordinator Log In" on the left-hand side of the AKC RDO Day main page and log-in using your user ID and password. Click “Edit an Event” to add details to your previously entered event.

The AKC Communications Department will review all events prior to posting, including any changes made to previously approved events. You will receive an e-mail notification when your event has been approved.

The listings will “go live” on the web site on July 1 and be updated weekly. Resource kits with brochures and promotional items will be sent the first week of August to the first 500 organizations whose events have been approved and posted on the AKC website.

Best of luck with your event!

AKC Communications Department
