Sanctioned Conformation Match
The Ann Arbor Kennel Club holds a Sanctioned Conformation Match once a year, usually in the early spring. The AKC defines the Sanctioned Match as "an informal event at which neither Championship points nor credit toward an Agility, Rally, or Obedience Title are awarded. They are events at which dog clubs, judges, stewards, and exhibitors and their dogs gain experience needed for licensed events." The AAKC Sanctioned Match is a great place for dogs and their owners to become accustomed to conformation show procedures, as well as to get used to the noise and environment of a dog show.
