IT'S SAD FOR ME TO SAY BUT AFTER MY EXPERIENCES WITH AKC AND SHOW BREEDERS WHAT I ONCE THOUGHT WAS A CERTIFICATE THAT MEANT QUALITY NO LONGER MEANS THAT TO ME. I COULD BE WRONG BUT THIS IS MY INTERPRETATION. BASED ON MY EXPERIENCES AND IN MY OPINION, THE ONLY REASON TO REGISTER WITH THE AKC IS TO PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR DOGS FROM THE ORGANIZATIONS CONFUSING RULES. EXAMPLE IF I SUSPECT A PEDIGREE IS NOT CORRECT I WOULD HAVE TO BEG THE AKC TO INVESTIGATE. IF THEY AGREE I WOULD HAVE TO PAY THEM $500.00 TO INVESTIGATE. OR IF I SUSPECTED AN OFFSPRING OF MY DOG WAS USED AS A STUD AND THE LITTER WAS REGISTERED UNDER A DIFFERENT SIRE; I WOULD HAVE TO GET PERMISSION FROM THE PERSON WHO USED THE DOG IN QUESTION IN ORDER TO COMPARE DNA. DOES THAT MAKE SENSE TO YOU? WHAT ARE YOU PAYING FOR? IF THEY REALLY ARE A REGISTRY OF INTETGRITY WHY DOES IT COST SO MUCH AND WHY TO THEY MAKE IT SO HARD TO VERIFY PEIDGREES THAT MAY NOT BE CORRECT? IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE TO ME. A LITTER WAS REGISTERED IN MY NAME WITHOUT MY KNOWLEDGE. SUBSEQUENTLY, I WAS BLAMED BY A RESCUE WHEN A PUPPY WOUND UP THERE. THE AKC HAD REGISTERED THE LITTER IN MY NAME WITHOUT TRYING TO CONTACT ME ABOUT IT. I ALSO BELIEVE YOU MUST INCLUDE "VOLUNTARY" DNA PROFILES, HEALTH TESTING, AND MICROCHIP IDENTITY. AKC DOES NOT REQUIRE THIS WITH REGISTRATION THEREFORE, ALLOWING FOR MANY DECEPTIVE PRACTICES THAT LEADS TO DOGS BEING REGISTERED UNDER DIFFERENT NAMES AND PEDIGREES. IT'S SAD BUT THAT HAS BEEN MY EXPERIENCE.

WHAT I HAVE FOUND IS THAT THIS ORGANIZATION IS FULL OF ELITISTS WHO THREATEN OTHERS WHEN THEY ASK LIGITIMATE QUESTIONS. WHY DO SOME OF THESE PEOPLE WANT TO INTIMIDATE AND HURT THE "LITTLE GUY" SO THEY CAN BE TOP DOG AND WHY IS THE SYSTEM RIGGED TO ALLOW IT? I DON'T KNOW. BUT I FIND IT TO BE AN ORGANIZATION FULL OF PEOPLE WHO ROUTINELY CONJURE UP STORIES RUINING REPUTATIONS WITH UNFOUNDED ACCUSATIONS. WHY ANYBODY WOULD WANT TO PART OF THAT IS MIND BOGGLING TO ME. WHY ANYBODY WOULD WANT TO BREED KNOWING THEIR DOG COULD BE STOLEN, BRED, AND REGISTERED WITHOUT THEIR KNOWLEDGE? IT DOES NOT SOUND APPEALING TO ME. MAYBE THAT IS WHY GOOD PEOPLE DO NOT WANT TO GET INVOLVED. DO WHAT YOU WANT BUT BE EDUCATED BEFORE YOU DECIDE.

FRAUD? BULLIES? ETHICAL?

A REGISTRY OF INTEGRITY? IN MY OPINION, I AM NOT SO SURE! READ ON,

CORPORATE PUPPY MILLS?

YOUR AKC REGISTRATION IS ABSOLUTELY WORTHLESS IN OUR OPINION BASED ON OUR VERY OWN EXPERIENCES! DID YOU KNOW That THE AKC DOES NOT REQUIRE MICRO CHIP? DID YOU KNOW THAT THE AKC DOES NOT REQUIRE HEALTH TESTS? DID YOU KNOW THE AKC DOES NOT REQUIRE DNA? SO WHAT GUARANTEE DO YOU HAVE THAT YOUR AKC DOG IS HEALTHY OR THAT IT'S PEDIGREE IS ACCURATE? WE HAVE FOUND OUT THAT THEIR POLICIES ARE ACTUALLY DESIGNED TO PROTECT THEIR HIGH VOLUME CORPORATE PUPPY MILLS. IF YOU WANT TO BE SURE YOUR PUPPY'S PEDIGREE IS ACCURATE YOU HAVE TO PAY THE AKC A $500.00 DOLLAR FEE TO LAUNCH A DNA INVESTIGATION (IF YOU ARE LUCKY THEY WILL AGREE). THEY HAVE TOLD ME I CAN'T CHECK MY DOG'S DNA UNLESS I HAVE THE PERMISSION OF THE PERSON WHO "ALLEGEDLY" COMMITTED THE PEDIGREE FRAUD!!!! THEY DO NOT EVEN VERIFY OR REQUIRE SIGNATURES ON REGISTRATIONS, MAKING IT EASY FOR ANY DOG TO BE STOLEN AND REGISTERED! THAT HAS BEEN MY UNDERSTANDING BASED ON WHAT I HAVE EXPERIENCED.

I HAVE BEEN TOLD BY WHAT I ASSUMED WERE HIGHLY ETHICAL AKC SHOW BREEDERS MANY THINGS THAT I HAVE FOUND NOT TO BE TRUE. IT "SEEMS" TO ME THAT THE "RULES" ARE DESIGNED TO GIVE THESE CONDESCENDING SHOW ELITISTS THE FALSE SENSE OF HAVING BETTER DOGS. WHEN YOU ASK THEM FOR ANSWERS THEY BEHAVE LIKE POLITICIANS. THEY TWIST YOUR WORDS, ACCUSE YOU OF ATTACKING THEM, AND THEN BLOCK OR TELL YOU NEVER TO CONTACT THEM AGAIN. CASE IN POINT: ON MANY OCCASIONS I HAVE BEEN TOLD BY SOME WEALTHY AKC SHOW PEOPLE WHOM I THOUGHT WOULD BE HONEST AND ETHICAL TO SHOW ME PROOF OF SOME OF THE ACCUSATIONS THEY HAVE MADE AGAINST A BREEDER THEY DO NOT LIKE . SOME OF THESE SHOW BREEDERS USE THIS BREEDER'S DOGS IN THEIR BREEDING PROGRAMS. THE RESPONSE I GOT WAS SURPRISING. I WAS TOLD NEVER TO CONTACT THEM AGAIN. WHEN ASKED WHY THE AKC WOULD DID NOT SUSPEND ONE BREEDER FOR WITHOLDING INFORMATION IN A DNA INVESTIGATION WHILE SUSPENDING ANOTHER BASED ON LIES PEOPLE MADE. THE DNA INVESTIGATION PROVED A PEDIGREE WAS INCORRECT. AKC WAS LOOKING FOR A DOG THAT WAS "ALLEGED" TO BE THE FATHER OF A LITTER WITH A DIFFERENT SIRE LISTED. THERE WAS AN AD SHOWN TO THE AKC OF A BREEDER SELLING THE DOG IN QUESTION WHO WAS NOT THEIRS TO SELL IN THE FIRST PLACE. WHY DID THE AKC NOT SUSPEND THE BREEDER? I HAVE NO CLUE BUT DO KNOW THAT THE BREEDER WHOM I THOUGHT WAS EHTICAL AND HONEST GOT VERY UPSET WITH ME FOR ASKING. ARE THE AKC RULES DESIGNED TO MAKE IT EASY FOR THESE CONDESCENDING, WEALTHY SHOW PEOPLE TO POOP ON HONEST SMALL HOBBY BREEDERS TRYING TO ENSURE THEIR PEDIGREES ARE CORRECT AND THEIR DOGS ARE HEALTHY? I DON'T KNOW BUT IT SEEMS THAT WAY? YOU HAVE TO GET PERMISSION FROM A PERSON WHOSE PEDIGREE IS THOUGHT TO BE INCORRECT IN ORDER TO COMPARE DNA. WHY DON'T THESE SNOOTY SHOW PEOPLE PUSH HARDER FOR THE AKC TO INCLUDE MANDATORY DNA AND MICROCHIP ON ALL DOGS REGISTERED IN THEIR REGISTRY? I COULD BE WRONG BUT SO MANY OF THE THINGS I HAVE BEEN TOLD BY THESE WEALTHY, CONDESENDING SHOW PEOPLE HAVE LED ME TO THESE CONCLUSIONS.

ON ONE OCCASION I WAS SENT AN EMAIL FROM ONE OF THESE SHOW PEOPLE. IT READ FOLLOWS:

"XXXX, I thought maybe you do not understand XXX X;X DNA issue. He bought HXXXr, everything was fine until a man breed XXXXXs brother and HXXXX had a few sick puppy's.  This man breed his Gold GXXXXX (HXXXXs Brother according to XXX X) to produce XXXXk KXXXX a gold male owned by XXX XXXX and XXXX XXXXXX.(X XXXXX used him for stud this year) All that is fine except someone noticed that XXXXX a XXXX, has a Black and Tan Mommy, and a Black and Tan Daddy, so they are unable to produce a Gold offspring. .Many people including XXXXXX X took note of that. No one has ever known of that to happen in any county EVER. So either XXX X or the science of men is wrong. XXX X may argue with schooled individuals about that, but a reasonable person may ask the following? If you had 4 litters born in as many weeks could a hired caretaker give the wrong puppy to someone? Or maybe that caretaker could have given the right puppy, but wrong papers? Since all 4 litter were in the same pen could a mistake have taken place? I know of a litter where the Vet chipped the puppy's but somehow the chip # got mixed up? So one could ask ????? about all puppy's that were born in year 2006. XXXXX, XXX X X CCXX and XXXCC, XXCXh and XXXXg were all born in 2006. Could XXXXX and XXXh be brother and sister if XXXXX has black and tan parents? XXXXXr and XXXh ARE half siblings to start with but could one mistake a black and tan puppy's if they mistook a Gold for a Black and Tan?  XXX X could for very little money prove if XXXXr and XXXn are full brothers. He could prove if XXX X did or did not made a mistake. I have asked XXX X to be like me, and listen to XXX X . and ask what would this prove? All dogs born in 2006 are still born in 2006. This could not change the fact that all 4 litters were XXXX XXX TIBETAN MASTIFFS NOT AKITA'S. ZXXXX is still a OFA Excellent and XXXX IS his OFA Good son. XXXXX and FXXX DID produced two puppy's I own and XXXXXr fathered XXkX and XXXXia who are OFA Good. Just as sick baby's are born sick litters are born, proving that XXXXr and X XXh may have produced a bad litter even if they are not full siblings, only proves the above. One thing is for sure, no one knows how many times TM breeders have made mistakes in paperwork or parentage,that went unnoticed because they owed no Golds. I would like to think that mine, yours, XXXX and XXXX are right and it will cost someone something to prove differently. I do not want to prove that GXXXn could not have 2 B&T parents anymore than I want to prove that HXXXXr and RXX are litter mates. I do not want to make matters worse by 'defriending' or defending anyone. XXX X is upset because this reflects bad on XXXXer. "

I HAVE BEEN TOLD MANY TIMES BY THESE AKC SHOW PEOPLE THAT THE AKC IS ONLY A REGISTRY. WELL IT SEEMS TO ME IF THAT IS THEIR ONLY JOB; WHY NOT BE MORE SERIOUS ABOUT IT'S INTEGRITY? AS YOU CAN SEE THE SHOW BREEDER WHO SENT ME THIS EMAIL WAS NOT TOO CONCERNED ABOUT THE ACCURACY OF THE PEDIGREE BECAUSE QUOTE:
" XXX X could for very little money prove if XXXXr and XXXn are full brothers. He could prove if XXX X did or did not made a mistake. I have asked XXX X to be like me, and listen to XXX X . and ask what would this prove?" UNQUOTE. COMBINE THIS WITH HOW I WAS TOLD I NEED PERMISSION FROM SOMEONE TO COMPARE DNA AND IT'S NOT LOOKING GOOD FOR ACCURACY IN MY OPINION. SO WHAT DO YOU GET FOR YOUR REGISTRATION DOLLARS? WHY IS IT THAT THESE CONDESENDING SHOW PEOPLE ARE NOT SO CONCERNED ABOUT THE ACCURACY OF THE PEDIGREE? IT CERTAINLY DOES NOT SEEM LIKE A GOOD ORGANIZATION TO ME. IT DOES NOT APPEAR TO ME THAT THE REGISTRY IS ACCURATE OR THAT PEOPLE CARE IF IT IS. SO WHAT IS THE VALUE OF THE PAPER YOU GET? IT'S LOOKING LIKE ABSOLUTELY "NOTHING" TO ME.

HERE IS MY CONCERN. THE EMAIL ALSO SAID QUOTE: "He bought XXXr, everything was fine until a man breed XXXs brother and XXXr had a few sick puppy's" UNQUOTE. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? IF SICK PUPPIES WERE PRODUCED; WHY WOULDN'T THIS BREEDER WANT TO KNOW IF THE PEDIGREES WERE CORRECT? I WOULD WANT TO KNOW BECAUSE THEN I COULD TRACE HEALTH AND KNOW WHAT LINES MAY "PRODUCE SICK PUPPIES". SO ONE HAS TO ASK, WHAT DOES AN AKC CERTIFICATE GUARANTEE YOU? YOU CAN'T COMPARE DNA WITHOUT PERMISSION, NO ONE SEEMS TO CARE IF PEDIGREES ARE GOOD AS LONG AS A DOG LOOKS GOOD AND WILL WIN IN THE SHOW RING. WHY WILL NO ONE PRODUCE THE RECORDS OF ABUSE THAT THEY CLAIM OTHERS HAVE COMITTED? AT LEAST THESE HAVE BEEN MY EXPERIENCES. SO MAYBE A LITTLE NON SHOW HOBBY BREEDER JUST MAY BE A BETTER CHOICE THAN A SEEMINGLY ETHICAL SHOW BREEDER?

I WAS ALSO TOLD BY ONE OF THESE SHOW BREEDERS THAT MAYBE THE JUDGES DID NOT KNOW THE STANDARD, THEY HAVE RUN INTO JUDGES THAT HAVE NEVER SEEN A TM BEFORE. OR THINGS LIKE THEY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO LOOK LIKE OTHER THAN A FEW PICTURES THEY HAVE SEEN. THEY HAVE ALSO SAID THERE ARE JUDGES WHOSE "OPINIONS" THEY DO NOT RESPECT BECAUSE OF THEIR EXPERIENCE WITH THE BREED, AND JUDGES WHOSE OPINIONS MEAN NOTHING TO THEM BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE A CLUE. "

WHAT DOES THAT ALL MEAN ? IS THE IMPRESSION OF SHOWING DOGS REALLY ABOUT ELITISTS? I THOUGHT THIS PERSON WAS KIND. THESE PEOPLE ARE MEAN AND LOOK DOWN ON "REGULAR" ORDINARY PEOPLE BASED ON MY EXPERIENCES. YOU SEE PEOPLE CAN BE VERY MEAN IN "SUBJECTIVE COMPETITION". BASED ON MY EXPERIENCES IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT KIND OF DOG YOU HAVE IN THE SHOW RING I GUESS. IT'S ALL ABOUT OPINONS, SUBJECTIVE STANDARDS, AND MONEY. SO COULD YOU BE PAYING A SHOW BREEDER MORE MONEY FOR A NOT SO GOOD DOG? OR COULD IT BE YOU ARE JUST PAYING FOR THE OVERHEAD OF THEIR EXPENSIVE HOBBY? THAT IS FOR YOU TO DECIDE. THESE ARE JUST MY CONCLUSIONS BASED ON MY EXPERIENCES WITH THE AKC AND ITS SHOW BREEDERS. ARE YOU GETTING A HEALTHY DOG BECAUSE IT HAS AN AKC CERTIFICATE? I DON'T KNOW BECAUSE BASED ON THE EMAILS I HAVE GOTTEN; HOW WOULD I KNOW IF THE PEDIGREE WAS ACTUALLY CORRECT AND THE PUPPY DID NOT COME FROM LINES THAT PRODUCED "A FEW SICK PUPPIES"?

IN ENDING, I CHOOSE TO GO TO SOMEONE WHO TREATS ME AS AN EQUAL, NOT TALK DOWN TO ME AND DEMEAN MY DOGS BY EXCUSING THEIR THEIR WINS BECAUSE THE JUDGE DOESN'T KNOW THE STANDARD. I HEALTH TEST MY DOGS, I HAVE DNA ON FILE FOR THEM. ANYBODY CAN COMPARE THEIR DNA IF AND WHEN I CHOOSE TO BREED. I HAVE NOTHING TO HIDE. SO WHY DON'T THESE ELISTIES SHOW PEOPLE PUT MORE PRESSURE ON THE AKC TO REQUIRE HEALTH TESTING, DNA PROFILES, AND MICROCHIP, AND THE ABILITY TO COMPARE DNA WITHOUT PERMISSION, IN ORDER TO REGISTER A DOG? I DON'T KNOW, I CAN ONLY ASSUME WHY BASED ON THE EMAILS RECEIVED. IT IS MY BELIEF DNA PROFILES SHOULD BE REQUIRED AND POSTED PUBLICLY LIKE OFA HEALTH TESTING. IT WOULD ELIMINATE A LOT OF QUESTIONS, TRASHING OF BREEDERS, AND MAKE IT EASIER TO ENSURE YOU ARE NOT BREEDING DOGS WHO MAY JUST "PRODUCE SICK PUPPIES".

Based on my experiences with AKC and their show crowd; I have determined that AKC is only interested in the money, not the dogs. I have heard of cases where the AKC "RETALIATES" against breeders who do not agree or support them. A friend of mine and longtime breeder was threatened with audits and inspections because he refused to sign papers and because they stopped registering litters and dogs through the AKC registry. All my dogs and this breeder's dogs are now registered with the UKC. According to articles they do not investigate whether a signature is authentic nor the person registering dogs and litters online. This has resulted in fraudulent registrations.

MY PERSONAL EXPERIEINCES WITH AKC SHOW BREEDERS AND JUDGES HAS LED ME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT I DO NOT TRUST ANY OF THEM. MY ADVICE IS 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. YOU ARE NOT GETTING A BETTER DOG. ANYBODY CAN WIN BY CAMPAIGNING THEIR DOG.

I BELIEVE THE AKC IS NO DIFFERENT THAN ANY CORRUPT GOVERNMENT. THE JUDGES/BREEDERS ARE LIKE THE IRS. THEY CONTROL. THEY ARE IN POWER. POWER CORRUPTS PEOPLE. PRETTY SIMPLE. THE AKC SHOW CROWD ARE THEIR MINIONS; DOING EVERYTHING TO STAY IN "GOOD GRACES". CORRUPTION IS EVERYWHERE. THAT IS WHY I THINK YOU ARE FAR BETTER OFF GOING TO A LITTLE GUY; WHAT THE AKC CROWD CALLS HOBBY OR BACKYARD BREEDERS. THEY DON'T HAVE THE MOTIVES AND THE MONEY BEHIND THEM. I WISH I DID BEFORE I GOT MIXED UP WITH ALL THE POLITICS OF AKC AND IT'S BREEDERS. LIKE I SAID; THE PEDIGREES ARE THE SAME EVERYWHERE YOU GO. I AM JUST TRYING TO SAY PEOPLE THE MONEY AND HEARTACHE I HAD TO ENDURE AT THE HANDS OF THESE PEOPLE. I HAD TO LEARN THE HARD WAY.

EXAMPLES OF COST TO SHOW A DOG IN AKC - WORST IN SHOW?

IF YOU BRING THE DOG TO THE RING FOR THE HANDLER - $100.00

IF THE DOG TRAVELS WITH THE HANDLER - $100.00 PLUS HANDLER EXPENSES

COST TO SHOW AS SPECIALTY - $250.00 +

COST TO SHOW AT A NATIONAL SPECIALTY - $500.00+

BEST IN SHOW UP TO $500.00

RESERVE BEST IN SHOW $200.00-300.00

AS YOU CAN SEE THE COST FOR ONE OF THESE PROFESSIONAL HANDLERS IS QUITE A BIT FOR "PRANCING" THE DOG AROUND THE RING FOR A VERY SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. THE HANDLERS CAN BE MEMBERS AND PAY A FEE TO THE AKC.

WHAT DO YOU THINK IF THESE AKC "CONNECTED" HANDLERS DID NOT WIN? WHY WOULD PEOPLE HIRE THEM? YOU DECIDE. ARE THEY REALLY THE BEST DOGS OR THE DOGS SHOWN BY "CONNECTED" PROFESSIONAL HANDLERS? HOW LONG DO YOU THINK THEY COULD STAY IN BUSINESS IF THEY DID NOT WIN. IS THIS ONE HAND WASHES THE OTHER?

THE COST TO "CAMPAIGN" A DOG CAN RUN THOUSANDS PER MONTH, WHO DO YOU THINK PAYS FOR THAT? YOU DO. THAT IS WHY SHOW BREEDERS WILL SLANDER AND DISASSOCIATE THEMSELVES FROM SMALL NON SHOW HOBBY BREEDERS WHO MAY JUST HAVE DOGS BETTER THAN THEIRS. THAT IS WHY CORRUPTION RUNS RAMPENT IN AKC. WIN AT A ALL COST NO MATTER WHO YOU HAVE TO HURT TO GET THERE. THEY DO NOT EVEN CARE IF THE PEDIGREES ARE CORRECT IF THEY HAVE TO "FUDGE" IT BY USING STOLEN OR DOGS THEY SHOULD NOT HAVE BRED. AT LEAST THIS IS WHAT I HAVE SEEN GO ON AND MY EXPERIENCE HAS SHOWN ME THAT AKC DOESN'T CARE. SO WHY PAY FOR SOMEONE SICK HOBBY OF SHOWING DOGS? MOST DOGS, ESPECIALLY TIBETAN MASTIFFS HATE THE SHOW RING!

DOG WORLD POLITICS

MAKING YOUR OWN MAJOR and CHAMPION

SOME BREEDERS WILL "MAKE THEIR OWN MAJORS". THIS MEANS THEY BRING ENOUGH OF "THEIR OWN" DOGS TO "MAKE A MAJOR". FROM WHAT I UNDERSTAND A MAJOR CONSISTS OF BEATING 3 OR 5 OTHER DOGS OF YOUR OWN BREED. IN ORDER TO "MAKE A MAJOR" YOU NEED AT LEAST FOUR DOGS. AS AN EXAMPLE, A BREEDER WOULD NEED TO BRING AT LEAST FOUR OF THEIR OWN DOGS IN ORDER TO GET A THREE POINT MAJOR. YOU NEED THREE "MAJORS" TO GET A DOG A "CHAMPIONSHIP". THIS IS A MUCH MORE ECONOMICAL WAY TO "CHAMPION" YOUR DOG. THEY WILL BRING SOME OF THEIR "PET QUALITY" DOGS THAT THEY KNOW THE DOG THEY WANT TO "CHAMPION" WILL BEAT. INSTEAD OF HAVING TO SHOW AGAINST DOGS THAT MAY BEAT THEIR DOG BECAUSE THEY MAY BE A BETTER EXAMPLE OF THE BREED OR HAVE A WELL CONNECTED HANDLER; THEY CAN "CHAMPION" THEIR DOG IN A LITTLE AS THREE SHOWS SAVING THEM TIME, AND LOTS OF MONEY!

BY BRINGING FOUR OF YOUR OWN DOGS 4 X $25.00 ENTRY = $125.00 YOU are GUARANTEED a major in one show for the price of paying a highly connected

THIS SAVES THEM LOTS AND LOTS OF MONEY!!!!!! (RESULTS ARE POSTED PUBLICLY ON ONOFRIO.COM AND JIM RAU DOGS SHOWS LTD.)

IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING SHOWING DO YOUR HOMEWORK. THESE SHOW PEOPLE WERE VERY NICE TO ME AT FIRST. AS LONG AS I WAS NAIVE. ONCE YOU LEARN HOW THEY "PLAY THE GAME" THE FANGS COME OUT! WHEN YOU NO LONGER BECOME A PAYING VEHICLE TO ENABLE THEM TO MAKE MAJORS WITH THEIR HANDLERS OR THEY GET SOMETHING THEY WANT FROM YOU; THEY WILL DEGRADE YOU AND INPUNE YOUR REPUTATION. BUT DON'T TAKE MY WORD FOR IT. GO AHEAD AND TRY IT BUT MAKE SURE YOU RECOGNIZE WHAT IT IS THEY ARE DOING TO YOU. IN THE END I FOUND OUT IT ISN'T ABOUT THE ACCURACY OF THE REGISTRY, OR THE HEALTH OF THE DOGS. IF IT WAS HOW WOULD YOU KNOW THE HEALTH OF THE DOG IF YOU YOU ARE NOT SURE OF THE PEDIGREE?

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. AKC REGISTRATION TO ME IS LIKE THE "KISS OF DEATH" ! You do not have to be a rocket scientist to "follow the show money in AKC", Based on my observations; I have come to the conclusion that winning in the AKC ring has nothing to do with conformation, only money. Old, snooty, condescending AKC show breeders will give all their excuses; buy seriously, just follow the money!. I heard all the excuses like I am sickly and can't show my own dog. Yup, heard a lot of them. HOWEVER, YOU WOULD HAVE TO BE BLIND NOT TO SEE IT!

And while I am on the topic, I would like to mention how they will brag about the B.O.W.s., B.O.B, etc. etc. Really? This is very funny. So many times they are the only dog entered in their class. Wow, they beat themselves. Hey Congratulations! Do your research. Don't believe their big marketing

WHAT IS THE TOP WINNING DOG MEAN? BASED ON WHAT I HAVE SEEN PERSONALLY, IT MEANS YOU HAVE SPENT THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS TO SEND YOUR DOG IN A CRATE WITH A BIG TIME HANDLER ALL OVER THE COUNTRY TO COMPETE AT EVERY POSSIBLE SHOW TO RACK UP POINTS. MOST OF THE TIME IF YOU DO THIS WITH A TIBETAN MASTIFF, THERE IS NO COMPETITION, SO YOU GO TO GROUP, AND GET A JUDGE THAT LIKES THE HANDLER , YOU RACK UP WHAT I REFER TO AS "UNEARNED" POINTS. BASED ON WHAT I KNOW AND SEE WITH MY OWN EYES, THIS DOES NOT MEAN YOU HAVE THE "BEST" DOG. ACTUALLY, BASED ON WHAT I HAVE SEEN, THE DOG IS USUALLY A DOG I WOULD NEVER WANT, BOTH FOR HEALTH AND STRUCTURE. I AM THINKING THE OWNER HAS JUST WASTED A BUNCH OF MONEY CARTING THE DOG AROUND THE COUNTRY, ONLY MAKING THE BREED WORSE BECAUSE PEOPLE WILL BUY THE MARKETING AND HYPE. DON'T BUY INTO THE AKC "GAME". FIND YOURSELF A DOG YOU LIKE FROM A NORMAL "REPUTABLE" PERSON AND I THINK YOU WILL BE MUCH HAPPIER. YOU WILL PROBABLY GET A MUCH HEALTHIER AND ALL AROUND BETTER DOG. THESE ARE MY OPINIONS BASED ON MY EXPERIENCES, WHAT I HAVE SEEN, AND BY COMPARING DOGS OUTSIDE THE RING TO THOSE TROLLED AROUND BY A HIGH PAID AKC HANDLER.

Based on what I have seen AKC promotes "corporate 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. WHAT TO LOOK FOR WITH WHAT I REFER TO AS AKC "CORPORATE" BREEDERS. (MY OPINION). HOW MANY LITTERS A YEAR? DO THEY HAVE "CO-OWNERS" DO THE BREEDING SO THEY DO NOT APPEAR TO HAVE AS MANY LITTERS. FOR MANY OF THIS HIGH VOLUME BREEDERS; THEY USE CO-OWNERS TO BREED LITTERS, THEN TAKE ONE OR TWO PICKS. I LEARNED THIS LESSON THE HARD WAY WITH MY FORMER CO-OWNERSHIP.

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 about
the money and I think it is a huge waste of time and money!
