The American Kennel Register (AKR) was published by James Watson in the years 1883-1887.
Not only was it the first U.S. magazine devoted exclusively to dogs, but it served as the very first all-breed registry. Each month’s issue contained the particulars on dogs being registered and assigned them a registration number. It also contained a produce register, stud register and a sales register and furthermore interesting articles, and reports on dog shows in the US and in England.
