Dog Show Entry Services
While most people complete entries online, there are instances when using an entry service is beneficial—perhaps computer access is limited or some other reason.
The two major registries in North America are the American Kennel Club (US) and Canadian Kennel Club. These clubs maintain registries, stud books, and approve clubs to give shows in which dogs may earn titles at. While there are other registries that offer dog shows, these two clubs are the “gold standard” clubs among canine enthusiasts.
