Becoming a steward for dogs means becoming educated about proper care and training.  If you are looking for some resources to share with your veterinarian, your dog club, your classroom, for a homework assignment, your local newspaper, we have some things that may be helpful.  Here are just three of the helpful downloadable brochures from the American Kennel Club: 

  • Consider inviting an AKC Canine Ambassador to speak to your youth group, school, or dog club.  For Information

  • Teachers looking for lesson plans on a variety of topics from dogs in the community, to basic care, as well as introducing activities for dogs.  Lessons are tailored for elementary to junior high.

  • Does someone in your community deserve a special thank you from dog owners?  Consider nominating that person or club for the AKC Community Achievement Award.  Honorees receive a certificate of recognition, and their club or federation receives $1,000 to further public education and strengthen Government Relations efforts within their community. Nominations are accepted throughout the entire year and awards are granted once every quarter.  For more information and a nomination form.

  • Perhaps your dog club is looking for resources for public education. The American Kennel Club has a wide variety of downloadable reproducibles, brochures, and even club kits that may be just what your club is looking for.  For more information
