The Westminster Kennel Club (WKC) is an exciting and prestigious event for any dog show exhibitor and enthusiast.  According to the Westminster Kennel Club’s website, entries are limited annually and the opportunity to show your dog is based on award requirements and selection.  This is due to space considerations at Madison Square Garden.  Unlike regular dog shows, not every dog can enter and show and the number of entries in each breed ring is not limitless.  As much as we would love to see 30, 40, even 50, Corsi in the ring, the WKC limits the number of Cane Corso entries annually and vacant spots often fill quickly on the first day that entries are accepted.

Entry breakdowns reported by the Canine Chronicle (http://caninechronicle.com/breaking-news/2015-westminster-kennel-club-entry-breakdowns-released/) showed counts as low as 1 per breed and as high as 58 per breed.  The entry limit per breed is set by the WKC and the average entry per breed was 14.  The Cane Corso had an entry count in 2015 of 20.

The 2015 Westminster Kennel Club premium list stated the following:

“Breed Entry Limit: Entries are limited to 2800 dogs/bitches that meet the award requirements (Invited Top Five Champions in each breed/variety, Invited BOB winners of their Licensed or Member National Breed Club Specialties, Non-Invited dogs/bitches eligible for BOB/V that attained their Championship status prior to the submission of the entry, Non-Invited dogs/bitches eligible for Bred By Exhibitor, American Bred and Open classes that have won at least one 3-, 4- or 5-point major prior to the submission of the entry) within the time frames noted…”

The CCAA congratulates the Cane Corsi who were invited to the 2015 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show and the remaining limited entries who were fortunate enough to meet the requirements and be selected to fill the vacant spots.

AKC Stud Book for Cane Corso to close July 1, 2015

Dear club members and cane corso enthusiasts,

 

The board of directors would like to clear up some misconceptions about the closing of the AKC stud book.  

 

First, a little background: Formed in 1992, the International Cane Corso Federation, or ICCF, is a registry for the cane corso in the United States. (The former ICCF Club was born at the same time.) When individual owners expressed interest in participating in AKC events in the mid-1990s, they were approved through petition and, since 1996, have been recorded in the AKC’s Foundation Stock Service (FSS). Gaining full AKC recognition became a goal for the club and was voted on and passed by the membership. In 2005, the ICCF club’s membership also voted to change its name to the Cane Corso Association of America, or CCAA, to accommodate AKC’s policy regarding the titling of parent clubs. In 2008, we were approved to compete in the Miscellaneous Class, and in 2010 we became eligible for regular AKC registration. It has been possible to register a cane corso with AKC (FSS) for nearly 20 years, and in 2010 it was announced that the stud book would remain open until July 1, 2015.

 

Here’s what you should know:

  • Closing the studbook as of July 1, 2015, was established early in the process of AKC recognition.
  • Five years is the typical time the AKC will keep a studbook open.
  • Closing the studbook is not a political agenda; it’s simply part of the AKC transition.
  • To ensure the inclusion of all interested fanciers, the ICCF Registry has a duty to its registrants to remind them of the date set by AKC in 2010 and to assist in the complete transfer of their registry.
  • Leaving the studbook open longer will not make a future transition easier.
  • In order to assist with the transition, the CCAA has negotiated with the AKC to offer a substantially reduced rate for registration transfers from the ICCF. All conversions must be processed through the CCAA and be part of our final package; the amount of the discount is based on number of dogs submitted. This offer is open to members and non-members alike.

 

From the AKC FSS Facebook page:

 

When a stud book closes it is only closing to the acceptable domestic registries. The normal time-frame for open registration is 5 years. That gives folks plenty of time to move their breeding stock into the AKC. You may review the current time-frames for breeds at the below link.

http://www.akc.org/reg/open_registration.cfm

Dogs may still be imported from foreign registries that we have an agreement with.

Benefits of AKC registration:

• AKC is the largest, most widely accepted, and comprehensive registry in the US.

• AKC has the best reputation of accuracy.

• AKC offers a wide array of events and titles that are both accepted nationally and internationally.

• Conformation Shows

• Obedience

• Agility

• Rally

• CGC

• Tracking, etc.…

• AKC can issue FCI accepted export pedigrees for foreign countries.

• AKC is a not-for-profit organization and annually allocates close to 30million dollars to the following:

• Kennel Inspections

• AKC Canine Health Foundation

• Canine Search-and-Rescue
• Public Education

• Government Relations

• DNA Profiling

• AKC Museum of the Dog

 

We strive to be transparent and welcome your comments and questions regarding the stud book or any other matter. 

 

Kind regards,

 

Your friends at the Cane Corso Association of America

2014 CCAA Breeder’s Cup Invite List

The following have qualified for invitation to the 2014 CCAA Breeder’s Cup competition.  The event is being held Friday March 7, 2014 as part of the CCAA National Specialty weekend.  Entries close on February 19, 2014 at noon.  Here is the link to enter:  https://webentry.royjonesdogshows.com/

A word about the judging of the Breeder’s Cup: This event is judged by a panel of three judges and the highest combined score is the winner.  The format gives each dog time to show off individually and be viewed by the judges and the fancy.  The identity of these judges is known only to the Show Chair, Nancy Amburgey.  This levels the playing field for all participants.  The suspense of showing to unknown judges raises the stakes… this is an “ALL IN” showdown for the true players.  No guts, no glory.  This is the highest level of conformation competition for Cane Corsos in the USA and the invitees are to be commended on their hard work and success in qualifying.  New for 2014 is a People’s Choice award.  For participants and spectators alike, this is the best showcase for the top dogs in our breed.  Are you ready?
