Canine Ambassadors contribute to their clubs' public education efforts by making presentations to groups of children in classrooms or other venues. Often Ambassadors bring their AKC-registered, PAL or AKC Canine Partner dog to the presentation.
Once you decide you want to become a Canine Ambassador, complete the onlinesignup form, and ask a club officer to email their recommendation to email@example.com. Canine Ambassadors must be members in good standing of an AKC-affiliated club. As a Canine Ambassador, you represent your club; you are not a direct representative of the AKC. We will add your name to a state-by-state directory of Ambassadors and send you tips on how to get started. The AKC Canine Ambassador directories can help you establish contact with people interested in the program.
WHAT IT IS
The Canine Ambassador Program is a network of volunteers from local AKC-affiliated clubs who are interested in making presentations to children — in classrooms, at libraries, in after-school programs, at Boy/Girl Scout meetings, etc. — on various topics related to the world of purebred dogs.
HOW CAN I SIGN UP?
Any AKC-affiliated club member in good standing with the club can volunteer to be placed in the Canine Ambassador Directory. Because you will be representing your club, it is important that your club’s officers are aware of your participation in this program.
Please fill out the online signup form and have a club officer email a recommendation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
