External Links QuestionEdit

In external links is a website http://www.doogle.info/doogle/jsp/search.jsp?lang=en/ (Doogle.Info Worldwide online dog database and pedigree) that seems to be more a private project than an official database. Thoughts? (SybilleY (talk) 09:56, 15 March 2011 (UTC))

I agree with you. As far as I know, there is no official AKC database -- and thus I'd support removing that link from the page. -- Anndelion (talk) 10:13, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

I keep an eye on it for around a week and wait if somebody else chimes in and if there is consensus, I'll remove it. (SybilleY (talk) 12:29, 15 March 2011 (UTC)) There is no official AKC Public database of dogs. This is a private dog data base with no connections to the AKC. FineCaliber````

SEE ALSOEdit

List of kennel you peoples' clubs by country redirects to WP:List of kennel clubs. I am unsure how to fix it. Just delete the words "by country" or what? Please help. Also, WP:List of kennel clubs is an Orphan. It needs some Links. I do not know how to do that either. Respectfully, Tiyang (talk) 17:38, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

Why isn't the AKC a member of the FCI?Edit

This is a fairly simple question, and I don't ask it to satisfy my own curiosity: I think it a worthy topic to include in the article if reliable sources can be found. What are the reasons that the AKC has not joined the FCI? What reasons might militate in favor of doing so? Is the issue politics? Money? Some disagreement over principle? A simple distrust of "Europeans"? What is it? I think it's worthwhile to find out, if anyone knows and can give usable information. Lockesdonkey (talk) 05:32, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

HistoryEdit

This section lacks some information.

For example, it states that the club moved to New York City in 1909 and incorporated.::Where did the club move FROM? or::What city was the club founded in?

Also, has the club been at the same location/address since it moved to New York City? If not, what locations/addresses has it been at?

And, what about the AKC's involvement in World War Two with "Dogs for Defense" (aka "Dogs for Defense, Inc." and "DFD") AND the establishment of the U.S. Army K-9 Corps? (And by extension, the K-9 Corps in the other service branches?)

Just curious, but these are historical questions that I feel should be answered and included. 2600:8800:50B:6700:C23F:D5FF:FEC5:89B6 (talk) 03:01, 14 March 2017 (UTC)

Merger proposal:Foundation Stock ServiceEdit

The result of this discussion was to merge. Cavalryman (talk) 22:00, 20 December 2019 (UTC).

I propose to merge Foundation Stock Service into American Kennel Club. The only potentially notable part of the FSS page is the lead, if RS can be found (not the AKC website) I propose using this as the basis of merged content. Cavalryman (talk) 10:36, 13 December 2019 (UTC)
