The American Kennel Club Releases New 2018 Point Schedule
-Realignment of Divisions Creates Equitable Distribution of Points-
Effective May 16, 2018, the new Schedule of Championship points will go into effect with a realignment of divisions.
“While computing this year’s Point Schedule, we continued to listen to customer input and feedback and took positive action that will create a more equitable distribution of points,” said Dennis Sprung, President and CEO of The AKC.
The new Point Schedule includes modifications to eight of the fifteen divisions. “We performed a comprehensive analysis of the level of competition in each state and division. The modifications reduce the show size variance within divisions,” said Doug Ljungren, Executive Vice-President of Sports and Events.

AKC will continue to monitor the Point Schedule and make future adjustments as necessary.
