AKC Welcomes All Dogs!!!

Yes that's right. We said all dogs. Purebreds, mixed breeds, goofy-looking ones, ones that shed... you get the idea. We love 'em all. In all seriousness though, we think of ourselves as the dog's champion, and by being more inclusive we're making the world a better place for ALL dogs and the people who love 'em. That's really why we launched the AKC Canine PartnersSM program. Enrolling in the AKC Canine PartnersSM program makes the most of life with your dog by offering these terrific benefits worth more than $100, for only $35!
