Calling all AKC Canine Ambassadors and Public Education Coordinators, (PECs), to a summer of fun and service to your community. The summer is a great time to get involved with the youth groups in your community. The opportunities may present themselves in a number of ways; 4-H events, scouts' activities, summer camps, library reading programs, and day-care and other youth group programs. The important thing is to get involved!

Many of you are already planning summer education programs and we encourage you to let us know what you're doing so we can share your ideas with others. Also, please remember that the AKC Public Education department can help you with your programs by supplying educational materials, including kits featuring lesson plans and DVDs about "Safety Around Dogs" and "Best Friends," (how to be a responsible dog owner).

For more information please contact the AKC Public Education department at publiced@akc.org or Larry Sorenson, AKC Director of Public Education, at (919) 816-3722. And if your AKC club has not appointed a PEC or Canine Ambassador, don't hesitate to contact us and we can get you started. We look forward to working with you!
