an In t he Company of Kings event
MARCH 30 & 31, 2016 
Welcome to the offical site of the 2016 Afghan Hound World Congress.  This site will be your reference for all of the World Congress events, including the Agenda, Speakers, Special Events, Registration, Raffles and more.  This site will be updated as more details become available - so be sure to check back frequently for the latest information.   
The Afghan Hound World Congress is held infrequently.  The last time it was held in the United States was 1995, in California.  The 2016 edition will offer the rare opportunity to learn from some of the world's great breeders, historians and enthusiasts of our beloved hounds.  Also, the 2016 AHWC is part of In the Company of Kings, a multi-day celebration of the Afghan Hound.  Events include Judge's Education, the Afghan Hound Club of America Breeder's Cup and 3 regional specialties  to see some of the finest examples of the breed in action.  And the venue is second to none - with hotel, meeting space and a beautiful event center all under one roof. 
As you can see, this event will offer something for everyone interested in the history, breeding, training, showing and judging of the Afghan Hound.   We truly hope you'll join us for this historic event!
