2007-12-03 - Special "Gazette" Deal from AKC

For those who don't need the "Events Calendar" pages, one year of the Gazette magazine section is only $19.95. That's $6.00 off the regular everyday price. To receive a year of both the Gazette and the "Events" pages, the courtesy rate is just $25.95. That's also a $6.00 saving.

To order, call the subscription center at 1-800-533- 7323 and mention the promo code "CLUB." Tell the operator if you prefer just Gazette or the Gazette plus "Events Calendar". Club members who already subscribe to the Gazette can also take advantage of this discount by renewing now and extending their current subscription.

According to publisher John Woods, "over the past year, the Gazette has been getting more and more positive feedback from the fancy. Now I want to get the word out - if you haven't seen it in a while, it's time to take another look at the AKC Gazette. Our award winning team of writers and editors supply news, insights, and analysis with a credibility that you don't always get with other dog media, print or digital."

2007-11-04 - EIC Study

Amy Chandler is a graduate student at the University of Tennessee who is interested in studying Exercise Induced Collapse (EIC) in our breed. She would like people who have had dogs collapse from this condition (which looks a lot like heat stroke, but is theorized not to be) to fill out her brief survey to help guide her research. Feel free to contact her with questions about the condition if you'd like more information, you can e-mail Amy at achandl2@mac.com or achandl2@utk.edu.  Mail your completed survey to Amy Chandler-109 McCord 2640 Morgan Circle Drive-Knoxville, TN 37996.

Thanks in advance for helping her with her project, and hopefully helping us all learn more about the incidence of this condition in our breed!

2007-06-18 - AKC Medallions for BBE Breed Championships and Performance/Companion Dog Events Championships

Information on the medallions can be found on the website under the Conformation FAQs at http://www.akc.org/events/conformation/faqs.cfm under the second question, "What is BBE?"

Beginning May 1, 1996, the AKC began awarding special medallions to breeder-owners who place championships on their dogs and to members of the fancy who have made a long-term contribution to the sport of purebred dogs.

A medallion will be awarded automatically to the breeder-owner of each dog that becomes a champion, when all points were accumulated as a result of participation in the Bred-by-Exhibitor class; and the breeder-owner of each dog that becomes a field, amateur field, herding, lure coursing or obedience trial champion, when all points were accumulated with the dog owned or co-owned by the breeder of record. Only one medallion will be awarded for either a field or amateur field championship, but not for both.

2007-06-05 - AKC Introduces On-Line Record Keeping (Free, Web-based Service Helps Breeders Manage Dog and Litter Records)

New York, NY - The American Kennel Club® is pleased to announce that Online Record Keeping, a new service for breeders of AKC® registered litters and dogs, is now available. Any breeder with a My AKC account now has access to this free service, which provides a centralized area to manage and maintain dog and litter records online.

"We are pleased to offer breeders of AKC dogs this new complimentary online feature to help them manage their dog and litter information," said David Roberts, Assistant Vice President of Registration and Customer Service. "Breeders can access their personalized breeding, ownership, and registration records from any computer with internet access at any time. This service is only the beginning of a variety of online features planned for the future."

With the new Online Record Keeping service, breeders can record mating and birth information for litters and view official AKC litter registration information including dog registration status for all puppies in a litter. There is also a handy address book function that gives breeders an easy place to store contact information for co-owners and puppy buyers. And the AKC's secure, password protected breeder record service keeps your information secure and private.

In addition to being able to record and view information, breeders can also quickly print AKC Dog Ownership, Breeding, and Litter records. If the breeder completes the necessary fields in the record-keeping system, all of the information required for AKC record-keeping rules and regulations will be pre-populated on these forms.

This new service also allows a breeder to record sale and ownership information for the puppies and to manage puppy records by adding notes about breeding and whelping.
For those breeders that have already taken advantage of online dog registration to record sale and new ownership information for their puppies, this information has been moved to the Online Record Keeping section of My AKC for easier access.

If you have an authenticated My AKC account (or want to start one - just go to the home page on the upper right hand box and start the quick process), maintaining your dog and litter records online is just a click away.

Follow these easy steps to get started:

1. Login to your My AKC account.
2. Sign up for Online Record Keeping services from the main page.
3. Go to the My Dogs and Litters section.
4. Click Breeder Records to view, create and maintain breeder records, view AKC litter and puppy registration information, and manage puppy records.
