New York, NY — Daytime and evening tickets are on sale now for the 2014 AKC/Eukanuba National Championship (AENC), which returns to Orlando’s Orange County Convention Center this December 13th and 14th. Simultaneously, the premium list is also available today to competitors.  Both tickets and premium list can be found at www.akc.org.

Considered one of the world’s premiere dog events, AENC and its long standing Best Bred-by Exhibitor competition joins a host of special consumer attractions, breeder seminars and of course the crowning of a new National Champion. For the first time, this year’s event will also include a Veteran’s Class in each breed, culminating with a Best Veteran in Show and the North America Diving Dogs/AKC Championship.

AENC will again present the AKC Obedience Classic and AKC Breeder-2-Breeder seminars, which were introduced in 2013 to overwhelming success. Other event highlights will include the National Owner Handled Series finals, the AKC Agility Invitational, AKC Meet the Breeds® and Junior competition in Conformation, Agility, Obedience and, for the first time, AKC Rally®.

This year’s competition will enjoy the consistency of our second year in the same location of the Orange County Convention Center’s North/South Building. For those who can’t be in Orlando in person, extensive evening event coverage will once again be offered free of charge via streaming video at www.akc.org.
