Don't have an AKC registered purebred?
Discover the fun of competing with your dog and earning titles in AKC events.
AKC Canine Partners Program allows ALL dogs to join in the fun, mixed breeds, and non-eligible AKC registered dogs. Participate and earn titles in all kinds of dog sports, such as AKC Rally, Obedience, and Agility.
Purebred Alternative Listing (PAL), is a program that also allows unregistered dogs of registrable breeds to compete in AKC Performance and Companion Events.
The Club generally holds an AKC sanctioned match each year in Sierra Vista, during March or April. A match gives people, and their dogs, puppies and inexperienced dogs, an opportunity to practice conformation, obedience and rally. Owners may also bring out their old 'friends' for the Parade of Champions.
For more information on AKC B/OB/RALLY matches, please visit the American Kennel Club web site.
Our 2023 AKC-sanctioned Match will be held on Saturday, April 29 at Veterans' Memorial Park, in conjunction with Sierra Vista's Celebrating Animals event! Registration will open at 7 AM. Download the entry form and mail to:
