So in my last thread someone mentioned that a beagle club is the best option to get a dog started. My dogs are not AKC registered, which makes it hard to get them into any local clubs (no one wants to take members with unregistered dogs around here.) I recently saw online the AKC Purebred Alternative Listing program. My dogs are full beagles, I just don't have papers on them. Does anyone out there know if getting a PAL number assigned to the dogs would qualify them for AKC events at beagle clubs? I appreciate any advice in this regard!
