Sponsorship and Vending
"Do good with what thou hast, or it will do thee no good." -William Penn
The Afghan Hound Club of America National Specialty is not just a dog show, it is an annual gathering of those interested in perpetuating the Afghan Hound as well as a social and competitive event.
An event of this scale would never happen without the yearly contributions from the AHCA members and the Afghan Hound Community at large. As a personal donor we want to insure that each of our contributors are appropriately recognized for their generosity. As a donor, you'll not only receive heartfelt thanks from the Show Committee, but also a donor gift appropriate to your contribution.
Shipment of logo item gifts and catalogs will be available. Contact Erica with any questions or to find out more information. Note that the deadline is October 5, 2019 for inclusion in the show catalog and website (of course we'd still happily accept contributions after that date — we just want you to get the credit you deserve!). Also packages are limited. Once they are gone, they are gone!

Applications are now being accepted for Vendors at this year's National. All vending spaces at the Founder’s Inn will be inside in view of the ring. Overflow spaces may be offered in the lobby if demand is high.
Rates are 150.00 for FIVE days of conformation judging. Electric will be available. All vendor spots are awarded on a first come, first served basis; with members of the AHCA and those who have previously vended at a Parent Club event given preference.
The first Evening Community event at the 2019 National will be the Meet and Greet-Trick or Treat? Attendees and Exhibitors will enjoy visiting the vendors as they “Trick or Treat”, filling their welcome bags along the way. Vendors will be given the option of providing their own “Treats” or having them provided.
