Welcome to the Alaska Kennel Club's website!
We hope you will use the information found
here to learn about purebred dogs. Whether you are looking for a family
companion, searching for a purebred show dog, wanting to meet other dog
fanciers, or deciding to enter a dog show, we can help!
The Alaska Kennel Club receives hundreds of calls throughout the year from individuals inquiring about purebred dogs. We would like to invite you to attend one of our dog shows, where you will have a great opportunity to watch the competition and talk to knowledgeable people about specific breeds. These people can help you decide if a particular breed would be the right addition to your family.
There are proper etiquettes that should be followed at dog shows:
1. Un-entered dogs are never allowed on any show grounds
2. Always ask the owner or handler's permission before petting a dog
3. Baby strollers are allowed in spectator areas but not in the aisles
4. Spectator seating will be found outside the rings away from entrances
The judging of individual
breeds is done from the morning until early afternoon, followed by
Group judging, where the dog awarded Best of Breed represents that breed
in the individual Group competition. The first place winners of the
seven Groups then compete for Best In Show at the end of the day. You
