to all listed and those to come!
June 24 - The comment period for Supervising Judge application for
Toby Emo, Nunda, NY is now open.
June 8 - The NAFA Board of Directors is seeking comments on an
8-dog proposal for the multibreed class.
May 31 - The comment period for Supervising Judge application for

May 24 - We have had a number of questions about the AKC recognition of NAFA titles, primarily about submitting a title certificate for recognition of ONYX awards. For ONYX titles, NAFA awards a plaque and pin, but does not issue a separate title certificate. You may submit a photocopy of the ONYX plaque.
There have also been a number of questions about whether other titles will be recognized. At this point, the only titles that will be recognized are FDCH, FM and ONYX, but we may investigate the possibility of having higher titles recognized in the future.
Thank you for you patience as we go through this process.
May 19 - NAFA is pleased to announce that the
American Kennel Club will now recognize NAFA flyball titles for inclusion on pedigrees of AKC
registered dogs. AKC will recognize three titles – Flyball Dog Champion (FDCh), Flyball Master (FM),
and ONYX. Titles earned back to January 1, 2000 may be recorded. Owners who wish to have their
dogs’ titles recorded must fill out an application and pay a recording fee to the AKC of $20.
Applications may be submitted immediately and the AKC Performance Events Department will be prepared
to start processing application on July 1, 2012.
