The AKC continues to work towards advancing our sport and our mission to protect and promote purebred dogs. It is our pleasure to share some of these developments with you.

This month we announced the launch of our inaugural AKC Royal Canin National All-Breed Stakes that will take place on Friday, December 15, 2017 in Orlando, Florida at the Orange County Convention Center, in conjunction with the AKC National Championship presented by Royal Canin held December 16-17, 2017.

This conformation competition was created specifically for puppy and junior purebred dogs ages 6-18 months. (Puppies 6-12 months/ Juniors 12-18 months). The event is open to all AKC-registered breeds including Miscellaneous Class breeds and provides an opportunity for breeders and exhibitors to showcase their breeding program.

Puppies and Junior Dogs are the future of our sport and we want to encourage their growth and success as champions. This competition gives them the opportunity to compete for the honor of being the Best in Stakes Winner and be crowned the AKC Royal Canin National All-Breed (Puppy/Junior) of the Year.

We look forward to the Stakes becoming a staple and beloved competition at our National Championship. The premium list and entry information will be available on in September. See you in December!
