A new and updated one-page Economic Benefits of AKC Dog Events flyer is now available in the AKC Government Relations Toolbox. The new one-pager is designed to help you provide community leaders and lawmakers with a tangible, economic reason why they should support AKC events and the breeders and dog owners who make these events happen.
This flyer is a companion to another general brochure about the economic impacts of dogs shows published earlier this month. The information contained in these new materials was summarized from a 2015 AKC survey that assessed the economic impact of AKC dog events in all regions of the U.S. The survey revealed that participants spend an average of $685 per trip in communities that host AKC events, and provides additional data about the significant economic contributions of AKC dog events.
