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.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE CCAA?

What is the Purpose of the CCAA?

  • What is the CCAA? The Cane Corso Association of America (CCAA) is a national nonprofit organization, incorporated under the laws of the State of Florida. The Club encompasses several hundred members, representing most of the 50 states as well as several other countries. The CCAA is the parent club for the American Kennel Club (AKC) and therefore is the only Cane Corso breed club which is recognized and sanctioned by the AKC. The CCAA is dedicated to preserving the conformation, working ability, soundness and intelligence of the Cane Corso in its purest form. The Club strives to promote the Corso in a positive way and educate the public on the Cane Corso. The CCAA is the largest, most progressive Cane Corso Club in North America.

 

  • What does the CCAA do for the Cane Corso? As the AKC parent breed club, the CCAA is at the forefront of the Cane Corso breed. The CCAA promotes the breed in a positive light, showcasing all of the wonderful attributes of the breed, while providing education to the public about the breed. The CCAA helps to guide breeders, novice and veteran alike, in the preservation of the breed. The CCAA, with the use of member volunteers, attends public events such as Meet the Breeds. The Club provides information to help combat BSL (breed specific legislation) and donates funds to 501(c) Cane Corso rescues. The club and its members showcase the amazing versatility of the Cane Corso breed from loving, loyal family companion, to agility competitors, to dock divers, to service/therapy dogs, to protection trained dogs; the CCAA displays the flexibility of the breed for the world to see.

 

  • Why do I want to become a CCAA member?Membership in the CCAA affords many benefits, both tangible and intangible.
    • An opportunity to help preserve and promote the breed by supporting the largest, longest-standing group deduced to this sole purpose.
    • An opportunity to vote on proposed changes to the CCAA Constitution.
    • A vote in the election of judges for the Annual Specialty Show and Regional Shows.
    • A vote in the annual election of the Board of Directors.
    • An opportunity to purchase a listing in the CCAA Breeders Directory.
    • An opportunity as a breeder to participate in the Futurity Stakes.
    • The opportunity to compete for annual CCAA conformation and obedience awards.
    • The opportunity to attend Annual Membership Meeting held in conjunction with the National Specialty.
    • A free copy of each issue of the Chronicle (published quarterly).
    • Special discounts on merchandise, banquets, as well as contests, exclusively for CCAA member.
    • A new member packet containing free copies of pertinent information concerning the CCAA and the Cane Corso, including a welcome letter, the AKC standard and a gift from the CCAA.
    • The opportunity to engage in close association on both a fraternal and professional basis with other Cane Corso fanciers in a welcoming, positive atmosphere.

 

  • What do my dues pay for? The CCAA counts on the funds raised to pay for and supplement all areas of the club, including but not limited to: Keeping the CCAA website online and as up to date as possible, National & Regional Specialties (locations, judges, awards, superintendents), Breed Education (printed brochures and guides, seminars, educational materials), Meet the Breeds (set decoration, banners, brochures), Elections (Parliamentarian) and postage, Welcome Packages (materials and postage), Performance Events (locations, judges, AWDF dues, scorebooks, awards, mailings), Club gatherings, Contests/Giveaways, as well as 15% of membership dues are donated to approved 501(c) Cane Corso rescues.

 

  • What does the CCAA do for the average household who doesn’t show? The CCAA helps to promote the breed nationally, ensuring the quality of the breed for the future and helping to prevent discriminatory legislation and practices that would jeopardize ownership of a Cane Corso.

 

  • How do I get involved at the Member level? The Club is organized and operated on a participation basis, and maximum involvement in the affairs of the CCAA by the members is vigorously encouraged. Every member is encouraged to get involved in Corso activities and CCAA functions.  We welcome all newcomers to read through our website, get to know our breed and visit us on our Facebook Page (https://www.facebook.com/CCAAOfficial). There are opportunities to be as involved as you desire, ranging from attending a Regional or National specialty, to short term (event) participation or joining a committee.

 

  • How do I become a member?The CCAA has a variety of membership options, including:
    • Regular Membership is open to all persons eighteen years and older who are and remain in good standing with the American Kennel Club, who are interested in the breed, and who subscribe to the purposes of the Club. This type of membership pays full dues of $45 per year and offers all Club benefits and participation. Regular members may vote and hold office.
    • Household Membership is open to a family whose members reside at the same address, in which the adults would otherwise qualify for Regular Membership. This type of membership pays full dues of $70 per year and offers all Club benefits and participation. Household Membership entitles the two primary adults to cast votes and hold office.
    • International Membership is open to all persons eighteen years and older who reside outside of the U.S., who are interested in the breed, and who subscribe to the purposes of the Club. This type of membership pays $55 US per year. Persons who were members prior to January 31, 2007, as long as they remain members in good standing, are “grandfathered” in with full voting privileges and may hold Board positions. Persons living outside of the US who join after 1/31/07 may not vote or hold a board position. They will receive the newsletter and be able to participate on committees.
