AKC Code of Sportsmanship
The sport of purebred dog competitive events dates before 1884, the year of AKC’s birth. Shared values of those involved in the sport include principles of sportsmanship. They are practiced in all sectors of our sport: conformation, performance and companion. Many believe that these principles of sportsmanship are the prime reason our sport has thrived for over one hundred years. With the belief that it is useful to articulate the fundamentals of our sport periodically, this code is presented.
