AKC dog-show rules allow foreign-registered dogs to be shown as listed for a 30-day period, starting with the dog’s first event. If the dog continues to be exhibited past the 30 days, the exhibitor must submit a 90-day extension form
For members impacted by CKC registration delays, AKC will allow unlimited extensions; however, extension fees cannot be waived. Members only need an extension if they show their dog beyond the initial 30-day period. Members do not
need to keep paying for additional extensions simply to retain their earned points.
Note that dogs can never be shown in the Bred By Exhibitor class unless AKC registered and may only show in the Specials class for a period of 90 days as an unconfirmed champion. (A dog can’t be a confirmed AKC champion until it’s AKC registered.)
Once members have the proper CKC documents and have successfully applied for AKC registration, any points, legs and titles earned will be applied to the dog’s AKC record.
