AKC TARGETING NON AKC SHOW BREEDERS WHO HAVE REQUESTED THEIR DOGS BE REMOVED? THE AKC IS LIKE THE HOTEL CALIFORNIA - quote "YOU CAN CHECK OUT ANY TIME YOU WANT BUT YOU CAN NEVER LEAVE" unquote

Based on my own personal experiences, I now know that the AKC is not interested in making sure their pedigrees are correct. A breeder in Wisconsin got two females from me. One was my formerly co-owned girl and the other was a girl I rescued. Both dogs died while in the possession of this breeder along with another "show" dog. All dogs were very young and the cause of death unknown to me. Just that they are dead. This same breeder got many dogs from a man who was buying dogs from breeders who would not sell to this breeder because many felt the breeder was a "puppymill". It is my belief, this man was just a puppy broker sent to buy dogs for this large high volume AKC breeder. This breeder actually placed an ad publicly for a dog they knew belonged to someone else. It turned out that the dog she sold was suspected of being the father of a litter of puppies this breeder also took. They claimed they were rescuing them for a termianlly ill man, however, DNA proved the sire the breeder listed for the puppies was inaccurate. AKC will not investigate the any farther and has let this breeder slide. This same breeder has participated in many of questionable business practices and is in a group that slanders others with lies to cover up all their fraud. The AKC won't do anything about these types of breeders, even when their own AKC judges speak their minds about these horrible breeders. I am appalled . Prayer for all the dead dogs and hope that no more will die before AKC investigates these vicious, lying breeders.

A friend of mine has been "targeted" by the AKC. AKC began "harassing" them to "sign off" on a litter despite the fact they haven't registered a dog or litter with AKC for over two years. What gives the AKC the right to do this? My friend had already requested t that all their dogs removed from the AKC registry before being threatened. Despite the request the the AKC has been threatening them with audits and fines. Why? Because they refused to sign off on a litter registration they knew nothing about? They never knew a litter was registered to "their" dog until they were told by someone that one had been registered to their male. All this AFTER the litter was registered without their signature. Why would the AKC target them and threaten them? Is it because they registered a litter to their male without their knowledge or signature? Think about it before registering your dogs with AKC. How can AKC threaten and fine someone who has asked to be removed and hadn't registered anything with them prior to the targeting for over two years? AKC has come under fire recently and is being taken to task by someone else for being defamed and targeted in the same manner as my friend.

As an owner when you register your dog with AKC; I believe you are putting them at risk to be stolen. Based on my experiences, AKC DOES determine ownership of dogs even though they say they do not. This tells me that you are basically signing your rights away as the owner of your dog when you register them with AKC. Why whould anybody want to pay for this liability?

On another occasion, AKC targeted a breeder because they were boycotting the organization. They suspended the breeder and then registered a puppy somebody bought from him; even though they themselves had suspended the breeder. The person who bought the puppy was told by the breeder that was not to be registered with the AKC. The person then registered the puppy with the UKC in order to bring it's registration back into the AKC. How can the AKC register a puppy from a breeder who they themselves have suspended. When asked, the puppy buyer said they threatened the AKC with a lawsuit. They have shown me that they will not respect me as an owner or enforce their own rules. I think they are only about the money.

Some AKC breeders often times claim they will not allow their dogs to be placed in shelters and they will take them back. I would ask them to speak to the former owner. Ask them where the dog is now. Ask to speak with it's new owner or could they have put the dog down because they did not want to have a reputation of having their dogs go to shelters? Personally, I would rather see a dog in a no-kill shelter with the possibility of them being placed in a good home than possibly put down by somebody trying to make a name for themselves. Believe it or not? Two dogs that I had in my possession went to breeder homes and one died at 3.5 years old and another died at 4 years old. My friend's dog went to a home and died in less than a year.

BASED ON MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCES WITH AKC SHOW BREEDERS AND JUDGES I HAVE COME TO MY OWN PERSONAL CONCLUSION THAT I DO NOT TRUST ANY OF THEM. IF I COULD GIVE ADVICE BASED ON MY EXPERIENCES; I WOULD SAY TO STAY AWAY FROM THESE PEOPLE. BY HAVING AKC BEHIND THEM, I Think IT GIVES PEOPLE A FALSE SENSE OF SERCURITY. REMEMBER; FOLLOW THE MONEY. MONEY IN MY OPINION DRIVES PEOPLE TO DO THIINGS THAT PERHAPS THEY SHOULD NOT. I SINCERELY BELIEVE WITH ALL MY HEART BASED ON MY EXPERIENCES IT IS ALL ABOUT THE MONEY AND NOTHING ELSE MATTERS. IT WOULD TAKE A LOT TO GET ME TO BELIEVE ANY DIFFERENT FROM WHAT I HAVE EXPERIENCED WITH THEM.

FOLLOW THE MONEY! AKC HANDLERS - EACH HANDLER PAYS A $250.00 TO BE REGISTERED ACCORDING TO THEIR WEBSITE: http://www.akc.org/handlers/links.cfm IT ONLY MAKES SENSE THAT AKC REGISTERED DOGS HANDLED BY REGISTERED AKC HANDLERS WILL MOST LIKELY WIN EVERYTIME. Here is an example of what AKC handlers may charge:

Best in Show………….……$450
Reserve Best In Show.........$270
Best In Show National…….$470
Best in Specialty…………..$250
Group I.……...………………$95
Group II……....………………$90
Group III………....……………$80
Group IV………...……………$75

HOW LONG DO YOU THINK AKC REGISTERED HANDLERS WILL CONTINUE TO PAY THE AKC FEE IF THEY DO NOT WIN? I HAVE PUT THE PIECES TOGETHER AND FOLLOWED THE MONEY TRAIL. REGISTRATIONS, ENTRY FEES, AKC "SO-CALLED" BREEDERS OF MERIT, AND FINALLY THE AKC HANDLERS. WHEN YOU HAVE A REGSITRY WHO WILL REGISTER ANYTHING, REGARDLESS OF HEALTH AND OWNER'S SIGNATURE IT CAN ONLY MEAN ONE THING IN MY EYES. ANYBODY CAN WIN WITH THE RIGHT AKC HANDLER, AND ANYBODY CAN REGISTER ANYTHING WITHOUT REGARD FOR HEALTH OR OWNER'S PERMISSION. BASED ON MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCES AND WATCHING THE DOGS "WINNING" IN THE RING; I HAVE COME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT THERE ARE FAR SUPERIOR DOGS THAT NOBODY HAS SEEN BECAUSE THEY DO NOT WISH TO THROW THEIR MONEY AT AN ORGINIZATION WHO WILL NOT PROTECT THEM OR THEIR DOGS.

Based on what I have seen AKC promotes "puppy mills" and even gives them the "breeder of merit" status. It is all about the registration and show dollars and with so much money being exchanged the dogs are the last step on the ladder. Politics and money. I recommend supporting registries like the UKC and FCI. I have found them to be ethical unlike what I have experienced with the AKC. AKC treats those who disagree with them like any mob member does with people who do not go along with them. A great non show breeder who has been around for years has just been targeted by the AKC because they stopped registering their dogs with AKC several years ago. The AKC threatened the breeder with audits and fines which they had no jurisdiction over. If this isn't racketeering; I do not know what is. In an other industry, the AKC would face penalties and fine for this type of action. Perhaps that is why members and show entries are declining with AKC.

Winning in the AKC show ring isn't about the merit or quality of the dog based on what I have seen. It is very subjective. It's not like soccer or baseball where a win is defined on performance. It is based solely on the judge's subjective opinion which can be influenced by all the ourside factors and money trail I have described above. I have found most of the show scene to be filled with nasty, catty, and vindictive people. I think it is a big waste of time and money and has no real value when seeking out a puppy .

WHY DOG SHOW ENTRIES DECLINE 
AND CLUBS SUFFER - "VENDORS"

To sum it up IN MY OPINION BASED ON MY DIRECT EXPERIENCES;
AKC showing is not about structure; it's all aboutthe money, politics, power, and I think it is a huge waste of time and money!
