Miscellaneous Group


There are several hundred distinct breeds of pure-bred dog. The Miscellaneous Class is made up of those breeds that the AKC has admitted into their Stud Book

The requirement for admission to the Stud Book is clear and categorical proof that a substantial, sustained nationwide interest and activity in the breed exists. This includes an active parent club maintaining a breed registry, with serious and expanding breeding activity over a wide geographic area.

Once such interest and activity exists, the breed may be admitted to the Miscellaneous Class. The breed may then compete in AKC obedience trials and earn obedience titles. They may also compete at conformation shows, but are limited to Miscellaneous Class competition and are not eligible for championship points.

Once the AKC Board of Directors is satisfied that a breed is continuing a healthy, dynamic growth in the Miscellaneous Class, it may be admitted to registration in the Stud Book and the opportunity to compete in regular classes.
