AKC Canine Partners

Clubs may now apply to accept mixed-breed dog entries at their Agility, AKC Rally® and Obedience trials!


Clubs may offer competition for mixed-breed dogs at events held on or after April 1, 2010. Trial applications have been updated to allow clubs to indicate whether competition will be offered to mixed-breed dogs at AKC Agility, Obedience and AKC Rally® trials.

If you already applied for an event that will take place on or after April 1, 2010, your club may still open its entries to mixed-breed dogs by contacting the Event Operations Department at eventplans@akc.org or calling 919-816-3579.

The new AKC Canine Partners program offers clubs an opportunity to increase entries for events that do not typically fill and an opportunity to increase your membership.
