Sporting Dog Update: Four Southeastern States Provide COVID-19 Accommodations
April 29, 2020 by AKC Government Relations

Sporting dog trainers and hunters in Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, and South Carolina may benefit from increased access for hunting and fishing under COVID-19 restrictions, the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation reports.

Certain restrictions have been eased to allow for participation in sporting activities, subject to social distancing requirements. Click here for more information and links to hunter education options in Kentucky and North Carolina. 

The American Kennel Club encourages and strongly supports the interaction and mutual enjoyment of owners and dogs in sporting activities such as hunting and field trials; in working circumstances such as herding, tracking, and pulling; and in competition events such as dog shows, obedience trials, agility trials, and other performance events and tests. The AKC believes that dogs should be properly cared for, humanely trained, and not pushed beyond reasonable limits for which they were bred.
