AKC Responsible Dog Ownership Day is a month long celebration sponsored by Motel 6 during the month of September.  It includes more than 500 organizations around the country which will be holding free events.  These events are filled with fun and engaging activities for dog owners and future dog owners.  Some of the different activities include trying a new dog sport activity, getting training, care tips and grooming tips.  Of course these are just a few of the activities provided.  Not only can you participate in the activities but you can also connect with the network of dog lovers in your community. If you own a dog or will be a dog owner in the future, and one of these days is planned in an area near you, you should check it out!

Each AKC Responsible Dog Ownership Day event is different.  Included are AKC Rally, Obedience and Agility demonstrations, breeder referral and breed rescue information, 10 step test that rewards dogs with good manners which is the Canine Good Citizen test, AKC CAR microchip clinics, therapy dog/service demonstrations, activities for juniors, programs for safety around dogs, face painting, food, giveaways, and much more!
