AKC Gazette



For more than 125 years the AKC Gazette has been the American Kennel Club’s official monthly journal about the sport of dogs, filled with news and expert information. If you have a keen interest in dogs and canine events and want to learn more, the Gazette is an invaluable source of knowledge and inspiration. Published since 1889, the magazine's look and content have undergone a continual evolution with the times — and today we're reaching a wide audience with a sleek, new design and digital-friendly features.
