AKC RDO Day in Raleigh
Saturday, September 15, 2007

The 5th Annual AKC Responsible Dog Ownership Day was held at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds in Raleigh on Saturday, September 15. The free event welcomed dogs and their owners for an afternoon of demonstrations, AKC Canine Good Citizen® testing, discounted microchipping from AKC Companion Animal Recovery, giveaways, games, face painting, and much more! Over 3,000 dog lovers were treated to an incomparable educational experience and information generously provided by our sponsors.

We thank all club members for their valuable participation in Meet the Breeds and our sponsors, Nature's Recipe, Invisible Fence Company® and Best Friends Pet Care, for making this AKC RDO Day a great success.
