Public Education Coordinator

Lets face it; you engage in public education anytime you talk with someone about the sport or welfare of purebred dogs or take a minute to teach a child how to pet a dog correctly.

While responsible dog ownership and a love of purebred dogs are second nature to you as members of the fancy, many people in our communities don't know things such as basic care or how to buy a dog from a responsible breeder. Education is the answer that will help us build safe, dog-friendly communities while sharing the joys of the sport of purebred dogs.

The AKC does not mandate how clubs appoint a Public Education Coordinator. Check with your club regarding its policies and notify a club officer if you are interested in the position. It may be as simple as requesting the position, or your club may require a stricter nomination procedure. For more information go to AKC's website and click on Public Education.
