AKC Wises Up

SUMMARY: Almost as if someone read my earlier post.

"While each club’s participation in the AKC Canine Partners program will remain voluntary, clubs may now choose to allow mixed breed participation at any AKC Agility, Obedience or Rally event. Mixed breeds will compete in the same classes and earn the same titles as their purebred counterparts."

Here's the complete letter in PDF.


  1. Are they letting the mutts into Nationals?

  2. Don't know. That's was my first question, and everyone else seems to be asking, too.

  3. According to the AKC agility list, they will be allowed to go to the Invitational (top 5 Mixed Breeds across all heights ... just like with any other "Breed"), so I would assume that would also be true of Nationals
