AKC in the News
Every year, the American Kennel Club honors five outstanding dogs with the Award for Canine Excellence (ACE). This is our 16th year honoring our canine heroes and the winners are amazing as usual. The announcement was covered by the Boston Globe, among others.

PR/Social Tips
You can increase press coverage throughout the year by hosting a stand-alone special event to raise awareness of your club. Having events or continuing activities outside your club's annual dog show demonstrates your value to the community. Many clubs host AKC Responsible Dog Ownership Days and successfully draw a large crowd of local dog owners. Remember -- AKC clubs are now welcome to host an AKC RDO Day at any time during the year, and will receive free materials as a thanks for signing up.
