Dedicated to showing what makes the Plott hound "a breed apart" from other hunting dogs.
The American Plott Association, Inc. was founded May 24, 1987 in Sweetwater, Tennessee. In forming this organization, charter members sought to return to the original and accurate breed standards, recognize the buckskin as a true Plott, give big game hunters a more active role and voice in breed matters, and make the hound-owning public aware of past inaccuracies and misconceptions regarding the breed.
Today, APA is going strong and growing by leaps and bounds. The Plott has again found widespread popularity, due to its talent as a hunting breed and because of its usage in a variety of law enforcement and public service fields.
