The National Redbone Coonhound Club (NRCC) is dedicated to promoting the Redbone Coonhound and educating the public about the breed. The NRCC is theofficial AKC Redbone parent club and, as such, is the only Redbone club or association recognized and sanctioned by the AKC. The NRCC recognizes the multi-faceted nature of Redbones and encourages their involvement in conformation showing, hunting, SAR, field and water sports, lure coursing, and other competition programs and activities. The NRCC is mindful of the fact that many Redbones are owned as companion dogs, and the club encourages the responsible ownership of them for this purpose as well.
