Knowing if a person has ever been suspended by AKC and the reason for suspension can be helpful in matters of trust.
Such important information should be readily available but the Director of AKC Compliance could not provide a list nor verify any suspensions. No wonder suspended people get re-suspended.
In 1999 TheDogPress instituted the ONLY compiled, searchable record of American Kennel Club suspensions, fines, and penalties. Suspended is an intensely time-consuming service but everyone can freely view current October 2014 records at no charge.
Insiders ($19 /year) have total access to previous AKC records, salaries, Insider News features plus other non-public archives and research information. TheDogPress is not responsible for error or omission. AKC penalties may change or be rescinded by Appeal or Trial Board. If you have any questions, contact AKC.
