Booth Kit: This “booth in a box” includes a 4’ x 4’ AKC logo banner, an AKC logo table runner, and a literature rack to help your club create an attractive and professional display. Kits cost $199 each and may be purchased by contacting the AKC Orderdesk at 919-233-9767 or orderdesk@akc.org.

Certificates of Appreciation: Has your club held a great meet-the-breeds event, hosted informative dog show tours or created an outstanding public education booth? Do your members participate in library read-to-dog programs, visit classrooms and youth groups, or educate the public at pet fairs? The AKC Public Education department would like to recognize the superior efforts of clubs and their members that promote AKC purebred dogs and responsible dog ownership with a Certificate of Appreciation.

The AKC Public Education department will send certificates to club presidents so that they may be presented to the club or club member(s) at their meetings. Email your nominations to jxb@akc.org.

PEC Kit Feedback Form: AKC Public Education would like to hear your thoughts on the amount and type of materials we supply for your shows, so we can determine how to best meet your needs. Simply fill out the feedback form included in each PEC kit shipment, fold, and mail it to the AKC Public Education department. You may also download the form here.

Public Education posters for PEC booths: Need help attracting people to your public education booth? Beginning in April, each PEC kit shipment will include a 2' x 3' full-color poster with graphics portraying responsible dog ownership and AKC events. There is space for clubs to customize these posters by placing their club’s name on the poster. The posters will be on heavy paper and folded similarly to the AKC’s Guide to Purebred Dogs poster.
