|Los Angeles, December 1, 2010 – Animal Behavior College (ABC), as an advocate for responsible dog ownership now proudly promotes the American Kennel Club® (AKC®) Canine Partners Program to its students and graduates. The program opens up the world of the AKC to all dogs by offering their owners an opportunity to connect with other owners as well as reaping the benefits of Canine Partners enrollment. One of the most important benefits is lifetime enrollment in AKC Companion Animal Recovery Inc.’s (AKC CAR) Pet Recovery Service; which provides dog collar tags with their unique listing number as well as AKC CAR’s toll-free number. The AKC CAR program has reunited more than 380,000 animals with their owners since its inception in 1995.
Other perks of the Canine Partners program includes a complimentary 60-day trial policy in AKC’s Pet Healthcare Plan,* a one-year subscription to AKC Family Dog magazine, and the ability to participate in AKC-sanctioned Companion events such as AKC Rally®, Obedience and Agility.
“For many years AKC programs have been inclusive of mixed-breed dogs such as the Canine Good Citizen® program and our affiliated organization AKC Companion Animal Recovery,” said Mark Dunn, Assistant Vice President for AKC Canine Partners. “Expanding AKC competitions to include mixed-breed dogs through the AKC Canine Partners program furthers our promotion of responsible dog ownership and training for all dogs.”
"Steven Appelbaum, President of ABC says, “Animal Behavior College is excited to be educating our students and graduates about the AKC Canine Partners Program. The AKC has been a tremendous resource for dog owners for more than 125 years. That’s where Animal Behavior College can help. In spreading the word to our students and graduates about Canine Partners, these students and grads will, in turn, go on to share this with their clients which means the numbers of people who learn about Canine Partners grows exponentially. This has the potential to affect the lives of hundreds of thousands of dog owners yearly.”
