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.

See it here:

“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.
