The survey can be taken by clicking www.akc.org/ad_clubsurvey
and should take less than 10 minutes to complete. Please forward the link to students, friends and colleagues. When you click the link, you will navigate to a non-AKC website called Zoomerang. This is an official AKC survey. Zoomerang is the tool AKC uses to collect survey data. The survey must be completed by February 18, 2008
per the AKC e-mail I received.
From the survey site:
Dog Owner Survey
At the American Kennel Club, we understand the importance of the bond between man and his favorite family companion, the dog. For centuries, dogs have served humans in a variety of vital roles – protector, hunter, herder – and most importantly, loyal companion.
Today’s dog lovers rarely need their canines to perform any job other than to be their best friend, and AKC knows that is the most vital part dogs play in our lives. AKC wants to help dog owners celebrate the love their canines bring to their families.
AKC is considering a new program, offered by an AKC affiliate, for mixed breed dog owners. The new program, a club possibly named the All American Dog Club, would give members access to an interactive website. The website would include fun features like forums, dog care video downloads, picture contests, multi-media scrapbooks, multi-media games, access to expert advice, and more. Additional benefits would include round-the-clock recovery services to help reunite lost pets with their owners, a free initial veterinary visit, a trial offer of pet health insurance, and the latest information on dog care and training. Members also would have the opportunity to earn the Canine Good Citizen certificate and AKC titles in Rally, Obedience, and the fast-paced sport of Agility!
Prior to making a decision to move forward with this new idea, AKC wants to learn more about you and your needs as a dog owner. This survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete, and the answers will help the AKC better serve you.
