AKC - The American Kennel Club: The American Kennel Club (AKC) is involved in a wide range of activities relating to purebred dogs in the United States of America including a registry of millions of purebred dogs and their pedigrees. Dog shows began in America in 1874 but there was not a consistent set of rules in relation to dog showing, pedigree standards and field trials.

On September 17, 1884, a group of twelve American gentlemen attending a meeting of the Philadelphia Kennel Club and agreed to start a national kennel club. The National American Kennel Club was born to address the issues regarding dog showing and the organization  was soon renamed the American Kennel Club (AKC).

In 1886 The American Kennel Stud Book was published detailing the constitution and codes for the club and its rules for both bench shows and field trials. The American Kennel Club (AKC) continues its work with the registry to the present day, registering over 250,000 pure bred pedigree dogs and crossbreed dogs each year, advising on training, breeding and advancing canine health and well-being.
