Official joint supplement of the AKC

Supporting canine athletes has always been a top priority for YuMOVE. Over the last 15 years, we have already supported over 2 million dogs globally*, including Crufts winners and agility champions, and we’re now thrilled to be able to support even more canine athletes in the United States as the official joint supplement of the American Kennel Club (AKC).

From the very beginning, YuMOVE was created with canine athletes in mind. From jumping to weaving, we developed our dog joint supplements to support their movements through the course. Because of this, we ensured that our joint supplements were scientifically proven* to support and maintain their dog’s joint health and mobility.*



United for a Cause

Establishing this relationship allows for both YuMOVE and the AKC® to educate and help US dog owners maintain and support their dogs’ joint health and mobility, at every age.

“The health and well-being of dogs is a key priority for the AKC, as well as responsible dog owners who only want the best for their dogs,” said Dennis B. Sprung, President and CEO of the AKC. “We are thrilled to work with YuMOVE and to highlight the commitment dog owners have to the wellness and joint health of both canine athletes, and dogs everywhere.”
