AKC RDO Day in New York City
Saturday, September 15, 2007

The 5th Annual AKC Responsible Dog Ownership Day was held at Madison Square Park in Manhattan on Saturday, September 15. The free event welcomed all of New York City's dogs and their owners for an afternoon of demonstrations, AKC Canine Good Citizen® testing, discounted microchipping, giveaways and so much more! Over 20,000 dog lovers were treated to an incomparable educational experience and information generously provided by our sponsors.

We thank all Parent Clubs 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.
