AKC

The American Kennel Club set the standards by which other kennel clubs could be founded the CKC, for example. But unlike so many other clubs, the American Kennel Club has a long and complicated history of coming together into the organization it is today. Founded in the 1884 as a sort of conglomeration of smaller United States kennel clubs, the AKC began its mission of creating standardized guidelines for 157 breeds and partially recognizing 4 other breeds. With some of the looser standards among breeding and registry organizations, it clear to see why its popularity and its reach have continued to grow. [...]

ANKC

The Australian National Kennel Club is a kennel club that's fairly new in the dog breeding and showing world. But while they might be new in structure, they have made up for it in the spread of the organization in Australia. By encompassing the Australian Capital Territory Canine Association Inc., Royal New South Wales Canine Council Ltd., the North Australian Canine Association Inc., the Canine Control Council (Queensland), the South Australia Canine Association Inc., the Tasmanian Canine Association Inc., the Victorian Canine Association Inc., and the Canine Association of Western Australia Inc., all of the major portions of Australia are covered. But what does this mean to dog owners and breeders? [...]

CKC

Created in approximately 1888, the CKC, or Canadian Kennel Club, strives to help maintain the integrity of dog breeds across the Canadian borders. Like other dog clubs, the CKC works hard to set guidelines for breed qualifications as well as to preserve the registrations of dogs in the country and provinces. As a national club, the Canadian Kennel Club is a non-profit organization and is incorporated under the Animal Pedigree Act of Canada. By providing registration for 174 recognized dog breeds, the CKC lets members know about the latest news in the dog world, about other members and their particular dog breeds, as well as helping to continue clean lines of breeding. [...]

FCI

Founded in 1911 on May 22 by the Netherlands, France, Austria, Germany, and Belgium, the FCI, or Federation Cynologique Internationale, strives to help maintain the integrity of dog breeds across these various European borders. Like so many other dog breeding clubs, the FCI works diligently to set guidelines for breed qualifications as well as to preserve the registrations of dogs in the 80 member countries. As an international Kennel Club, the Federation Cynologique Internationale is an organization that is available for members that speak four different languages French, Spanish, English, and German.

NKC

Created in 1969, the National Kennel Club is a dog breed registry that helps to register and to recognize all dog breeds. Within the United States, it tries to maintain integrity among dog breed lines, while also helping members learn more about dogs, how to care for them, and what makes for a strong breed representation. However, unlike many other kennel clubs and dog registries, the National Kennel Club has been under fire for being too loose in their standards of course, it may also be that other dog registry organizations are too rigid. This discussion may never be resolved to anyone's satisfaction, so here is some basic information on the National Kennel Club, what it does, and what others are concerned about. [...]

NZKC

The New Zealand Kennel Club, or NZKC, is an international registry of dog breeds, but began as an organization of many societies, rather than just a simple single-minded construction. These 300 other societies, organizations, and affiliations all help the New Zealand Kennel Club in some way to spur on their commitment to the maintenance of recognized dog breeds. The associated clubs that the NZKC works with include: [...]

Specialized Events For Different Breeds

Each type or breed of dog has been bred and developed to fill a particular niche for humans. This may be a very general job such as a companion dog's role, or it may be very practical such as a breed that has been developed as a gun or hunting dog, as a working dog or as a herding or flock guardian. Each breed, regardless of its size or abilities, has a special type of event or competition that they could, with work and practice, start to compete in. Some competitions will require that the dog be a registered purebred, while other events, typically the hunting and working trials, will be open to all dogs regardless of registry or lineage. Other events may be sponsored completely by one breed association and may be restricted to dogs that are registered through that group, club or association. [...]
