Events for Non-Registered Dogs
AKC's My Dog Can Do That! After a successful run at the 2011 show, the Houston World Series of Dog Shows will be offering the AKC® My Dog Can Do That! event for non-registered dogs. The event invites all dogs of different breeds and mixes to test their skills in agility without the pressure of a real competition! With the help of professional coaches, attendees can have their dogs run a condensed version of the agility courses that “professional” agility dogs face. There is no additional cost beyond paying admission to the Shows and event is open to all dogs as long as they are 6 months old and on a regular 4-to-6 foot leash. No prior registration is needed; however, in order to maintain a healthy and safe environment at the dog show, proof of rabies vaccination is required. As an added bonus to participating in the My Dog Can Do That! events, the American Kennel Club offers participants a discounted registration in its AKC Canine Partners℠ program. The program is for ALL dogs, including mixed-breeds, and allows them to list with AKC and compete in many events, including agility. With the AKC Canine Partners listing, dog owners will also receive other perks including a lifetime enrollment in AKC CAR Pet Recovery Service and a complimentary 60-Day Trial AKC Pet Healthcare Plan.
