    • Kangal Shepherd Dogs

    • Following a definitive decision by the Köpek Irklari ve Kinoloji Federasyonu (Turkish Kennel Club) the Fédération Cynologique Internationale has advised that Anatolian Shepherd Dogs will now be classified as Kangal Shepherd Dogs, this will have far reaching consequences for the owners of in excess of 2,000 Registered Anatolian Shepherd Dogs in Australia.

      ANKC Ltd does not intend to take any action that will disenfranchise these owners and will engage the Fédération Cynologique Internationale and the Turkish Kennel Club in discussions to mitigate the effects of this decision.
