How many extra dogs can you have when adding a kennel slot? Is it 1 dog per slot?

It's 1 dog per slot - $5/dog, $25 gets you 5 extra dogs for a total of 35 instead of 30.

Yep, it is expensive but you have to consider that it's $5 once and the expansion is permanent as long as the kennel stays subscribed. Plus it is reinstated if you have gone Basic and re-subscribe.

Now, that said, my thoughts have always been, give me an extra 5 and I'll fill it up and still be chronically over limit at 35 instead of 30. I need the extra room periodically when I have several litters hit 14 days at the same time that I want to show, but I can't. I might have an older dog just a few points short of a title but it's run out of entered shows and I can't enter anymore. (I'd like to see the show entries excluded from the over limit restrictions myself but have been criticized for asking. Entering shows has little to do with population, in my opinion but "whatever" . . .)

A better solution in my view - Let me buy an extra 5 or even 10 (or more) spots at $1 each good for 30 days. (Think of it as boarding my overflow with someone for a few days.) It can be renewable for another 30 days if needed. It buys me time to deal with the issue because sometimes I just don't have time or motivation. This would actually generate more revenue for Admin over time I believe.

Or perhaps better yet, let me buy a waiver that allows me to to continue showing but still prevents breeding/buying. It stops continued growth but allows legitimately acquired dogs to show.

Did you know?
In the American Kennel Club, a dog needs 15 points to become a Champion, with each win gaining anywhere from zero to five points depending on the number of dogs competing and the area where the show is held.
