AKC Mixed Breed Participation Survey
22 Feb 2007
The AKC is conducting a survey to try to gauge interest in allowing neutered and spayed mixed breeds to compete in Companion Events (agility, obedience, rally and tracking).
Personally, I think the AKC should allow mixed breeds to compete in these events with the same titles and opportunities (including invitational, national and international competitions) as pure bred dogs. I think it would make for better competition and (contrary to the AKC’s stated goal of increasing the desire for pure bred dogs) will show the benefits of adopting rescue and shelter dogs.
So let the AKC know what you think: here is the survey and information packet. The survey is open until March 31st 2007.
