Activities at the 2018 AKC Responsible Dog Ownership Day include:

  • AKC Canine Good Citizen® testing. This 10-step test certifies that dogs are well-mannered members of the community. Trick Dog testing will also be available. These tests will be open to the public for just $10 each.
  • Action packed dog demonstrations including Scent Work, Rally, “O”gility, Obedience and more. Try outs for the Rally, “O”gility and Obiedence runs are only $2 per run.
  • Four Fast Cat trials, 2 on Saturday and 2 on Sunday. $25 prior online signup & $28 day of event. Additional info available on MADTA.org
  • Reduced fees to enroll a mixed-breed dog in AKC Canine Partners: $20, a 57% discount. This is good for the life of the dog.

Attendees will also have a chance to meet various dog breeds that will be on hand for AKC Meet the Breeds as well as speak one-on-one with experienced breeders, owners, handlers and trainers that are active in AKC events, clubs, and rescue groups.
