AKC SUSPENDED, penalty, fine, reason for suspension searchable records only at TheDogPress


June (only) - No July 2017 Suspensions


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


We were told by a former American Kennel Club Officer that our records are more complete, up-to-date, and searchable than AKC's own records. TheDogPress.com is not responsible for errors or omissions as AKC corrections, changes or suspensions may change after the fact. If you have any questions, please contact the American Kennel Club. 


AKC reduced serious sentences by nearly 100% in 2009 as compared to previous years.  Jack Norton was Director of AKC Compliance for many years.  Wanda Forlines is the highly regarded current Director.


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. is or has ever been suspended by AKC.
