- Premium List Available Now -

 

Entries are now open for the 2017 AKC National Championship Presented by Royal Canin, which returns to Orlando’s Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) North/South Concourse this December 16 and 17. Entries are also open for the inaugural AKC Royal Canin National All-Breed Puppy and Junior Stakes, which will take place on December 15 at the OCCC. Both premium lists can be found at www.akc.org.

The largest dog show in the United States and the only show hosted by the American Kennel Club, the AKC National Championship is considered one of the world’s premiere dog events. The National Championship is held in conjunction with the AKC Agility Invitational, the AKC Obedience Classic, the National Owner-Handled Series finals, AKC Meet the Breeds® and Junior competitions in Conformation, Agility, Obedience and Rally®, and showcases more than 5,000 of the top national and international canine athletes.

Hotel room blocks are now open for those traveling to the event. Visit the AKC National Championship Hotel and Travel page for more information.

For those who can’t be in Orlando in person, full event coverage will once again be offered free of charge at both www.live.royalcanin.com and www.akc.org.
