AWC National Specialty

awclogo2024.png

Welcome to the AWC National Specialty Website. We have established this website for up to date information and details regarding our 2023 National Specialty.  We will be adding new information and details as it becomes available.

The 2023 National Specialty will be held in Topeka, KS at the Hotel Topeka at City Center from April 8-15, 2023. This is the same site as the 2019 AWC National Specialty that was nominated for top National of the year sponsored by Purina and Dog News.

 

The National week will begin with Lure Coursing and the Agility Trial on Saturday, April 8, 2023, and end after the Awards Banquet that will be held in the evening after Best of Breed judging on Saturday, April 15, 2023.

Check the section below for frequent updates.

ATTENTION

AKC has approved the AWC request to remove the table from judging of Whippets. Only the ramp or ground can be used.

This is effective March 29, 2023 so this will effect judging in April.  AWC has a good, solid ramp so it shouldn't cause concern.
