Showing Dogs from the US and Other Countries
Here are the current AKC Rules:
1. For dogs from the US, they must have a permanent registration by
the start date of the show or they cannot be entered.
2. Dogs that are registered in a foreign country (all countries have
the same rule) can enter a US show using their foreign registration
number. But, you must register the dog with the AKC within 30 days
of the beginning date of the first show. If not, you will
loose any show points or titles you have earned in that 30 days.
A. For show purposes only, you
will need to fill out the AKC form for a foreign application, submit two pictures of
the dog, submit a copy of the certified pedigree in your name from
the country the dog is registered in. The AKC
will also need proof that the dog is physically in the US by
submitting a copy of the show records or a veterinarian statement on
their letterhead stating that they saw the dog on a certain date,
dog's name and tattoo number/microchip. The Fee is $50.
B. The same rules apply for show as
well as entering field and performance events.
