Due to impending inclement weather, the Museum and Bryant Park have made the difficult decision to CANCEL Paws on Parade scheduled for Saturday, September 23rd. We are sorry for any inconvenience.

Identity & Restraint Opening Reception

Tuesday, April 4

AKC MoD Members at all levels and VIP guests are invited to join us for the opening reception for Identity & Restraint: Art of the Dog Collar. Members and VIPs will have the first look at the exhibition before the exhibition opens to the public on April 5. Join as a Member or renew today to attend!

Invitations are for two adults per Membership and light refreshments will be served. While we love dogs at the AKC MoD, we kindly ask that they not attend this reception.

This exhibition was organized in partnership between the National Sporting Library & Museum and the American Kennel Club Museum of the Dog and was made possible through the generosity of Dr. and Mrs. Timothy J. Greenan, Garth Greenan Gallery, and Mark Anstine and Marianna Lancaster.
