  • A survey was conducted by ANKC Ltd earlier this year to ascertain the feedback from any Member of a Canine Control affiliated with the ANKC Ltd and who was the owner of a registered Anatolian Shepherd Dog or Kangal Shepherd Dog to the following questions:

    1) Do you agree to the renaming from Anatolian Shepherd Dog to Kangal Shepherd Dog?
    2) Do you agree to the FCI Standard for FCI CACIB shows?
    3) Do you agree to an Australian Kangal Shepherd Dog Standard for non-CACIB shows?

    The response received indicated support.

    As this was an amendment to current regulations, the result of the survey was referred to the ANKC Board of Directors for consideration at their October 2020 Special Board meeting where it was resolved that the status quo remain where there will be two breeds with the Anatolian Shepherd Dog using the current Anatolian Shepherd Dog breed standard and the Kangal Shepherd Dog using the FCI Kangal Shepherd Dog breed standard and that owners may transfer the affected dogs from one breed to the other up until the 30 June 2021.

    The ANKC urges those owners who want to take advantage of the transfer moratorium to ensure that they are satisfied that the dogs they are moving to the Kangal Shepherd Dog Register comply with the requirements of the Kangal Shepherd Dog Standard.

    As a consequence, the following new clause will be added to Regulations Part 6 – The Register & Registration:

    6.2.4.9 Anatolian Shepherd Dog/Kangal Shepherd Dog

    The status quo will remain where there will be two breeds with the Anatolian Shepherd Dog using the current Anatolian Shepherd Dog breed standard and the Kangal Shepherd Dog using the FCI Kangal Shepherd Dog breed standard.  Owners may transfer the affected dogs from one breed to the other up until the 30 June 2021.
