(Wednesday, April 06, 2011)

AKC Meet the Breeds® presented by Pet Partners, Inc. and hosted by the American Kennel Club (AKC) will again return to the Jacob Javits Center in New York City. We have expanded the space to 160,000 square feet in order to accommodate the enhanced cat booths, dog booths and spectators. We are planning for over 35,000 attendees, 200 individually decorated breed booths that allow cat and dog lovers to interact with kittens, puppies, cats and dogs and learn about the history and family friendly attributes directly from top experts. 100 vendor booths will offer every imaginable product for pets and their owners. Ongoing demonstration rings will feature law enforcement K-9’s, cat and dog grooming, agility, obedience, a cat fashion showcase, free giveaways plus more special attractions. Last Year the event was a major hit with the press generating more than 700,000,000 impressions in the media capital of the world. Come join us to participate in the wonderful world of cats and dogs, have fun, and learn about responsible pet ownership as well as enjoy holiday shopping for you and your pet.
