Did you know??

Did you know that you can register your mixed breed (or purebred dog without papers) with national recognized kennel clubs and earn performance titles with them???

AKC has a Canine Partners Program.  This program allows any mixed breed dog to participate in performance events at AKC events!  This means that you can earn titles in Obedience, Rally, Agility and Therapy with your rescue dog!!  It's easy to sign up! 

If you have a purebred dog (like Sarah), but do not have AKC papers, you can register in AKC with the Purebred Alternative Listing!  This allows you to earn titles with your purebred dog in AKC!!

For more information visit AKC Canine Partners

ALSO!  You can obtain a tracking number from ASCA (Australian Shepherd Club of America) for any type of dog and earn Rally, Obedience and Agility titles from ASCA!!

For more information visit ASCA

Lastly, UKC (United Kennel Club) allows mixed breed dogs to register and participate in UKC events (Obedience, Rally and Agility) as well!  You can register under their "Limited Privilege Registration" and start competing!  UKC also allows deaf dogs to participate!!

For more information visit UKC

Need a place to train for these events??  Visit Joshica's Planet Canine for classes in Obedience, Agility, Therapy and Rally!  Training your dog is a great way to bond with your dog!  Both Ann and Lacey participate in different events - Ann does Conformation, Obedience, Canine Freestyle and is dabbling in Agility.  Lacey does Conformation, Obedience, Rally,  and Agility.  They both work with rescue dogs (with the exception of conformation)!
