This month, millions of families across the nation will celebrate the American Kennel Club’s Responsible Dog Ownership Day at events held by nearly 400 AKC-affiliated clubs and other organizations. These events are free for dog lovers and designed to teach the importance of being a conscientious dog owner and celebrate the deep bond between humans and their canine companions.
Two flagship events will be held. The first is Sept. 20 in New York City at Madison Square Garden. The second is on Sept. 27 in Raleigh, N.C., at the Carolina State Fairgrounds.
