Soon, owners of the top five ranked dogs for each breed will be receiving their invitation to the Sixth AKC Agility Invitational and FAST class event warm-up to be held in Orlando, Florida on December 16-18, 2011, as the invitations were mailed today.

Owners are encouraged to use the AKC Agility Online Entry Service to enter the event without any additional service fee. To do so, please log in to your MY AKC account (or create a MY AKC account for free and add your dogs to your account). Then from your MY AKC account select "Enter Agility Events" in the menu on the left side of the screen.

From the next screen, scroll to the bottom of the page and select the link for "Enter an Event(s) That Is Currently Accepting Entries Online." When the screen loads with all the events, you may sort the events alphabetically by clicking on the "Event Name" heading. Select the American Kennel Club, Inc. event, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the "Enter Event" button and then follow the on screen directions to enter the event.

If owners prefer to enter via mail, they should mail in the entry form enclosed with the invitation, with a check or money order payable to the AKC Agility Invitational, in the reply envelope provided with the invitation.

Although owners have until 4 PM EDT on August 29, 2011 to RSVP, they are encouraged to reply as soon as possible. If you are unable to attend the event, please RSVP as soon as possible to allow another top-ranked dog the opportunity to receive an invitation to attend this prestigious event.

We are in the process of working out the final details as to the best available rates and accepting dogs with several of the large Hotels that surround the Convention Center as well as some of the smaller hotels along nearby I-Drive. Some of these Hotels do not normally take dogs, but they are making an exception for our event week. Or if they do normally take dogs, perhaps there is a weight restriction, and they are making an exception for our event week. Until these room blocks are available in the Hotel's reservation system- anyone calling the Hotel will get that Hotel's standard response as to their "pet policy".

Watch AKC's website for the list of hotels and rates to be posted as soon as they are available.
