The AKC Gazette was a tedious tiny-type source of information when TheDogPlace.org began reporting Board Business in 1999. In 2002, there was still no AKC website so TheDogPress.com staff took over preserving and presenting American Kennel Club Minutes, Chairman's Reports, and Archives.
Searchable AKC records from 1999 through current are available to paid Insiders. They are the only such resource. Period. AKC records are a treasure chest of history, mystery, and reference, and our data collection is unique. One example is the Director Salaries and how they relate to AKC's reported loss of revenue and ever-increasing fees for dog owners and clubs. The New AKC Mission Statement shifts focus to ALL dogs, non-purebred dog events, and the bottom line.
