AKC Expands Online Store Through Relationship With Cherrybrook, Inc.

Thousands of New Products, Simplified Navigation and Enhanced Design Make AKC Online Store the Ultimate Retail Website for Dog Lovers

The American Kennel Club (AKC®) today announced the debut of its new AKC Online Store located at www.akc.org/shop. The enhanced online shopping destination will feature nearly 11,000 new items in the "products & supplies" section, including full lines of grooming and training products, as well as a complete redesign of the valuable "reports & information" section, which offers AKC certified dog pedigrees, DNA test kits and Canine Good Citizen® materials. The "products & supplies" area will be exclusively administered by Cherrybrook Inc., a leading retailer of goods and services for show dogs and pets, while AKC will continue to manage proprietary items in the newly improved "reports & information" area.

Already a favorite shopping destination for dog lovers around the world, the expanded retail offerings, coupled with the more user-friendly "reports & information" section, will allow shoppers at the AKC Online Store to find desired products from crates, treats and canine clothing, to breed-specific items and certified pedigrees more quickly and efficiently.

"The AKC Online Store has always been a popular place for the fancy to purchase key reports and information items such as dogs defeated statistics, Canine Good Citizen® materials and progeny reports," said AKC President and CEO Dennis Sprung. "Through our relationship with Cherrybrook, we will now offer thousands of products that will not only appeal to the fancy, but to all pet owners. All dog lovers can come to our website and find not only the most pertinent information about the sport of purebred dogs, but can purchase many of the necessary products required to be a responsible dog owner."
