COVID-19: Impacts on Dog Events

The novel coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus is affecting our lives in many ways. We encourage everyone to follow local, state and federal mandates to help mitigate the impact of this disease. Please consult the US Centers for Disease Control and World Health Organization web sites for the latest information on the disease and methods for keeping you and your families (human and canine) safe.

Many American Kennel Club events are being cancelled due to the closure of sites and mandates against mass gatherings. Please check the AKC Events Cancellation page for the latest information, which will be more up-to-date than the listings on this page.

The event calendars were updated on DECember 4, 2020.
