BIO: Phil Guidry – Director, Policy Analysis, AKC Government Relations
Phil gained his first experience with AKC as a summer intern in 2002. After receiving his law degree from Loyola University-New Orleans, he returned to AKC in early-2006 as a member of the Internal Consulting Group. Before entering his current role, Phil served as Government Relations’ Sr. Policy Analyst for six years. Other positions he previously held with AKC include Legislative Analyst and Director of Registration Development.
Phil’s involvement in purebred dogs dates back to the early 90s, when he started competing in junior showmanship, and claims handling his first Bred-by Exhibitor Champion Cocker Spaniel as his proudest achievement as a purebred dog fancier. He currently owns a mixed breed cuddle monster called “Phoebe” and a very naughty 14-week old PBGV puppy called “Tabasco”.
