What is the AKC Canine Partners™ Program?

The AKC Canine Partners™ Program is an all-encompassing program that welcomes perfectly mixed breeds and hybrid dogs of any age to the AKC family. Dogs enrolled as an AKC Canine Partners™ pup have the ability to participate in AKC sports and events, like Agility, AKC Rally, or Obedience. 

You’ll also enjoy more practical benefits, like enrollment in optional pet insurance and a complimentary veterinarian visit through the AKC Veterinary Network.

All dogs that are not eligible for AKC Purebred Registration or the AKC Purebred Alternative Listing (PAL) can join the AKC Canine Partners™ Program—because all dogs belong here.
