Clubs that host American Bulldog Shows now have the option of hosting a Junior Champion Class.
A win will be awarded for this class and dog of the year points will be awarded.

Effective immediately any American Bulldog that is being single registered must have either been previously registered by another registry or it must be inspected. Any dog that does not meet the requirements for registration can petition the NKC office for registration by submitting a completed application along with several pictures front, back and both sides.  Those applications will be forwarded to the American Bulldog Board for verification of breed and possible registration.

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.

As of September 22nd 2003, NKC will only register dogs that meet the 7/8 purity requirement.  If the NKC finds any person (s) has registered any dog (s) that do not meet the 7/8 requirement, the papers on those dogs will be pulled and the registration nullified.  Any repeat offender of this policy will be barred from all NKC Events and will no longer be given registration privileges.  From this date forward all dogs with questionable or unverifiable lineage must be  physically inspected by an authorized breed inspector to be considered for registration.  The National Kennel Club has no intention of going back and investigating all dog previously registered; however, several dogs have been brought to our attention.  If those dogs are bred back into the bloodline decreasing the Purity percentage we will refuse to allow those dogs to be registered.
