There is no comprehensive directory of all AKC registered dogs. In 1998, there were more than 1.2 million dogs and 555,000 litters of pups registered with the AKC and 2 million dogs competing in over 15,000 events.
There is a comprehensive directory of AKC recognized breeds, which, for the year 2015, includes 184 registered dog breeds. As an organization that wants to champion all dogs, the AKC offers a Canine Partners program, which permits any mixed-breed dogs or dogs ineligible for AKC registration to compete in AKC-sanctioned events. Canine Partners dogs are breed-designated "All American" and are eligible for AKC events, such as agility, obedience and tracking.
