Happy 135th Birthday, American Kennel Club!

(View Online)

September 17, 2019

Dear Friends,

Congratulations are in order to our entire community as we recognize an important milestone in the history of the American Kennel Club. Today we celebrate the 135th anniversary of our organization, an honor not many companies can claim today. Despite the many ways in which our society has changed since AKC’s founding one hundred thirty-five years ago, there has been one abiding constant that has allowed our organization to stand the test of time and thrive, and that is our shared love of purebred dogs.

A famous CEO once said, “An organization is nothing more than the collective capacity of its people to create value.” In our case, that is true; our American Kennel Club is comprised of each of you who live, lead and act on behalf of the dogs we breed, exhibit and cherish. As responsible breeders, Delegates, exhibitors, judges, owners, volunteers and staff members, you will always be the integral part of our mission.

Thanks to your passion, dedication and devotion to dogs, AKC has led the way in improving and enriching the lives of dogs across our country and around the world since September 17, 1884.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, we personally appreciate your support on each and every level and congratulate you with heartfelt gratitude for everything that you do for AKC.

As ever
Dennis Sprung
President & CEO
American Kennel Club

Hello Everyone,

Below is the link to the summer class schedule for Namastay Training ….. I have worked with Jennifer to train Finn and highly recommend her for your fur babies. The club has no association with Jennifer, other than hiring her occasionally to do classes for us – this is just our recommendation for well-run and helpful training classes. They are also listed in our Resource List, under trainers on this website with full contact information.
