This is possible right? I mean can I compete in akc events with a dog who isn't akc registered? Or are there other venues I can use?

You can get a limited registration on any dog in AKC - mixed or purebred - any age. The Canine Partners program allows any dog to be registered to compete in the performance events like agility, Rally, obedience...

If your dog is a purebred (or looks close enough to one) you can register for a PEN, which will allow your dog to compete in AKC/CKC events. I'm Canadian, so I'm not sure, but I think you can apply for a number from the AKC even if your dog looked like a complete mutt as long as you can provide proof that he or she is desexed. I'm fuzzy on the details.

However, you can compete in sports without the AKC/CKC. APDT and CARO offer Rally. USDAA and AAC offer Agility. I'm not sure about obedience - I'm sure there's a non KC group out there who holds OB competitions but I don't know a name.

So, regardless of whether your dog is registered or not, the world is your oyster as far as trialing is concerned.

Desexed? As in neutered, because he isn't and I don't plan on doing it until later, if ever. I will check out all the orgs that were listed though, thanks for the info. He is purebred his breeder just turned out to be... Well a bit dishonest. So I can't register him like was originally planned.

There is so much more to the world of dog sports than the AKC. There is the Australian Shepherd Club of America (ASCA) where you can get a tracking number to compete in agility, herding, obedience, or rally.

If you want just agility I know that there is also CPE, NADAC, and USDAA (& some other venues depending on your area).

I also know that UKC has programs...but seeing as how I don't know anything about them I can't help.

C-WAGS does obedience, Rally and Scent Detective games.

Many venues offer Rally and agility besides AKC. And most welcome all dogs.

And then there are a ton of other sports that don't require purebred registrations.

Look around and see what fits your schedule and location.

I don't know where to look, I will try some of the other clubs listed, but other then that I don't know a website to look at to list these events for me. There will be nothing in my town, so ill have to travel. Which is fine. I know there are other orgs I just used the akc as an example.

All dogs have to be registered with the organization you're competing in. In AKC, you can get a PAL (Purebred Alternate Listing) number for purebreds who aren't registerable through AKC (for whatever reason). In other organizations, lack of pedigree doesn't really amount to much. They simply register dogs to compete in performance events (though some other registries do offer conformation events as well).
