    DefaultDifferences in registries...AKC, UKC, CKC (Canada), CKC (US), and others?

    I'm kinda confused in what the different registries represent. I've heard that AKC is what you want if your in the US (which I am, and have an AKC yellow lab), but I'm confused why some believe other registries are not as good. I'm sure that there are alot of different reasons why, but I'm really curious as to the differences, and would love to learn more.

    Thanks,
    Chancie

    UKC and AKC are legit and so is CKC (Canada). Anything else in the US is not.

    most other registries are puppymill registries or ones that will register mixed breed dogs. There about 25 of them.

    I think the main reason they are not as respectable is that they don't require any proof of a dogs lineage they will register about any dog based on the "breeder's" word where as the other require further authentication such as DNA and pedigrees both parents have to be registered...etc.

    Actually, not all registries are created equal. Some even register mixed breeds like lab/poodle mixes and that sort. AKC is the American Kennel Club, UKC is the United Kennel Club, and CKC is the Canadian Kennel Club: all very reputable registries that register only purebred dogs. Now on the other hand there are plenty of bogus registries out there: CKC (US) the Continental Kennel Club, UKCI the Universal Kennel Club International, and a host of others that are geared more toward Puppy Mills and "Designer" dogs. They will register just about anything!

    Here is a good webpage on registries: http://www.wonderpuppy.net/kc.htm

    Hope that helps some, and I hope I didn't offend anyone!!

    In New Zealand it is the NZKC.

    In N.Z it is the registered breeder who give the pup a kennel name. It must then be registered with the NZKC and they send out the certificates. I guess it is the same as other countries. Except I have read you give your pup the kennel name.
