For years, dogs have been shown to "show off" their wonderful traits. It therefore became increasingly important to have uniform show rules and to document the winnings and pedigrees of the top rated dogs for "many" different breeds.

The year 1884 saw the development of the first all breed, purebred dog registry in America, "The American Kennel Club", or AKC. The AKC works with National Breed Clubs, and other organized dog groups that will serve as the Parent Club for a breed.

The breed clubs apply to the AKC (or other registry) for breed acceptance. The clubs must meet the AKC breed acceptance criteria before going into the miscellaneous group, after which it may move up to a permanent dog group.

Here is an alphabetical list of all the AKC breeds.
