If you’re planning to enter a conformation dog show, you’ll need to register in advance. Typically, entries must be received by the superintendent or show secretary approximately two and a half weeks prior to the event date. Use the AKC Event Search to find upcoming events.
An AKC dog show entry form can be found in a show’s premium list, which contains all the information about the event, including judges panel, classes offered and entry fees. You can fill out a blank AKC dog show entry form too. Shows can be entered by mailing the printed form or online on the dog show superintendent’s website.
Here is a short overview to help you fill out your first AKC entry form for a dog show. Just select the tooltip in each section and the pop-up will tell you all you need to know to correctly enter the required information.
