So reads the title of the American Kennel Club Website.
There’s a wealth of information for all dog lovers, whether you’re a first time dog owner, or a lifer like me. You’ll find it all in one place on the American Kennel Club Website at akc.org
I’m one of those people who goes into a library or bookstore and gets lost in thought while browsing titles on my favorite topics. On finding a book that grabs my interest, I find a spot to sit, read, and literally lose complete track of time. Hours can pass. Well, get ready, the American Kennel Club (AKC) Website is just like a giant library/bookstore where you will find information on endless topics relating to man’s best friend. When I log on, I give myself the gift of time to peruse a few select topics… no way can I look through everything on their Menu in one sitting!
Seriously, you ask, Could it be that good, that interesting? Absolutely! You can find answers and information on every dog related topic.
One of my favorites for people wondering what type of dog is best for their particular lifestyle is the quiz you can take to help guide you in making the right choice. Once logged onto AKC’s Webite, click on Choosing the Right Breed and take a little quiz that can help send you in the right direction. English Setters are my forever breed, have been for 28 years, but I still find it fun to take the quiz and check out the different breed profiles. I love dogs and find it fascinating to read about all kinds.
You can sign up for AKC Newletters on topics like Training, Health, and Senior Dogs. You can sign up for the digital version of the bi-monthly Family Dog magazine or the monthly AKC Gazette magazine.
You can click the tab for Event Alerts, Breeder Information, Federal/State/Local Dog Legislation, and more. When I logged in today and clicked on Expert Advice, there was a Featured Article entitled Heal, Fido: Acupuncture Could Help an Ailing Dog. I also clicked on Events and saw this upcoming event in January 2020: Meet the Breeds, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York running January 25-26. What a fun trip that would make for those living not too far from NYC!
I have cited just a few examples here in this post. I leave the rest to you.
As I said, going through the entire site could take the whole day. Best to enjoy in bite, like savoring a small slice of your favorite dessert. Have fun learning about the world of dogs. Those of us who love them cannot image life without them.
