AKC Parent Clubs

The AKC Canine Health Foundation's working relationships with the parent clubs for AKC recognized breeds of dogs helps us to gather information about canine health concerns from the people who know the breeds best.

Parent clubs are also a good resource for anyone looking for a dog.  Parent club websites generally provide information about the breed's temperment, physical characteristics and health concerns.  Some have breeder referral programs and rescue programs as well.
