ACKCSC National

The American Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club (ACKCSC) is our AKC national or "parent" club for our breed. Every year, the ACKCSC holds a National Specialty in conjunction with a Specialty show with one of the AKC sanctioned breed clubs or may hold an independent specialty after the National. 

This specialty is typically held in April and is a wonderful time! Even if you do not show your cavalier, this is an event not to be missed, especially if it is in your regional area!

Besides the conformation shows, sweepstakes and parades, there even may be performance activities to compete in such as obedience, rally and agility. There are health clinics, seminars, vendors, multi day silent auctions, raffles and much more! And the last evening is the special banquet and live and silent auctions to benefit the ACKCSC Charitable Trust for cavalier health research and funding.
