March 2017 Suspensions


American Kennel Club suspensions; search by name, state, charges, penalty.  The first (1999) and ONLY compiled quick-find source is TheDogPress. 


When AKC reduced serious sentences by nearly 100% in 2009 as compared to previous years, we contacted Jack Norton, Director of AKC Compliance.  He could not offer any reason, nor could he provide a list of people previously suspended.


Given the difficulty in obtaining and compiling this information, we are not responsible for error or omission. Suspensions may change after the fact. If you have any questions, please contact the American Kennel Club. 


We present only the current month of AKC Suspensions.  You must be an Insider Subscriber in order to go further back to see if someone you are about to buy a dog from, co-own with, admit to your club, etc. If you do not find the person you are looking for, click the book to go back to the Index or try another time period, links below.
