Events

The first Akita Club of America's National Specialty show was in 1976 in Southern California with the San Fernando Valley Kennel Club's AKC licensed All-Breed show.

Akitas in all their glory are showcased at the Nationals competing in Conformation, Sweepstakes, Obedience, Rally, and Futurity/Maturity. The Top 20 dogs in conformation, go head-to-head to determine their Top 20 winner and most recently added the People's Choice Award.

Entries come from all over the United States as well as several foreign countries. The show is held in conjunction with the Akita Club of America Annual Meeting and includes educational programs, special events and festive activities, which take place throughout the week.

Along with our Annual National Specialty we have several Akita Clubs through out the United States that hold Regional Akita Specialties. Be sure to visit the Regional Specialty page for more information regarding these upcoming Regional Specialties.

The Akita Club of America encourages everyone to attend at least one National Specialty and/or a Regional Specialty where you will gain a wealth of information from it's club members, exhibitors, meet breeders, and most importantly see a great deal of beautiful Akitas... what more could you ask for!
