AKC and Mixed breed dogs.

I just found out that the AKC will be letting mixed breed dogs compete in some of their events at the end of this year!  Rally, Agility and Obedience will be open to mixed breed dogs as long as they are fixed.

That means Marley and I can compete!  We have been working very diligently on re-focusing his basic obedience in a wide variety of distracting situations.  Over the summer we will continue to train and hopefully be ready in the fall to show off our new skills!

Here are some pics of Marley enjoying some of the snow we have gotten recently.  Three feet by tomorrow!!!

Emily and the Labradors said...

Very cool (and progressive?) of them! It always irked me that mixed breed breed dogs weren't welcome in their events.
