Promoting AKC’s Good Works, plus Shows Closing May 22, 2013

Senior Editor Bo Bengtson discusses the need to promote public awareness of the good work that AKC does for dogs in the aftermath of a recently televised exposé. When a “Today Show” report attempted to link AKC-registered dogs with puppies raised in deplorable conditions, it was enough to make “any right-thinking dog fancier’s blood boil,” as Bo says. Find out what Bo thinks is needed in the PR battle for the support of American dog lovers.

“Woofstock” has become a model for kennel clubs looking to inject some fun into their events. The Northern California cluster welcomes exhibitors and spectators to a festival of “Peace, Music and Dogs,” but it also provides health clinics, fundraisers and Meet the Breeds. Get the tie-dyed details from Senior Editor Christi McDonald, and discover the offerings for upcoming shows in Arizona, Connecticut, Florida and Virginia.
