forwarded to the American Bulldog Board for verification of

Memo Concerning Hog Competitions
The National Kennel Club
does not sanction Catch Dog events, nor will it sanction Conformation Show in
conjunction with these event.
Any Club wishing to hold
an NKC sanctioned Show must summit proof of insurance along with the show
application for the show to be scheduled.

will only register dogs that meet the 7/8 purity requirement. If the NKC
