AKC Canine Partners Team Bringing “My Dog Can Do That!” to Houston

The AKC Canine Partners team will bring their attraction – My Dog Can Do That! – to the Reliant World Series of Dog Shows in Houston on Saturday-Sunday, July 21-22.

The public is invited to bring their dogs and try some beginning-level agility obstacles with the help of trainers. The attraction runs from 9 a.m.. to 3 p.m. and will be located near the Agility rings (between agility and vendors).

The team also will offer discount enrollments in the AKC Canine Partners program for mixed-breeds, rescues and rare breeds. Enrollment gives the dogs eligibility to compete in AKC Agility, Obedience, Rally and Coursing Ability and to apply for the AKC Therapy Dog title. In addition, AKC now recognizes three NAFA Flyball titles.

The AKC staff is seeking trainers who can volunteer to assist in the My Dog Can Do That! ring, and also dogs that are enrolled in AKC Canine Partners to participate in three demonstrations taking place over the weekend (in the demonstration ring). These demos will be held from 9 to 9:30 a.m. Saturday; 4:15 to 5 p.m. Saturday; and 3 to 3:30 p.m. Sunday.

If anyone is interested in helping and/or participating, please contact akccaninepartners@akc.org or call 919-816-3749.

Thank you!

Program Manager, AKC Canine Partners
