No TraumaMamma, I did not get them there. That is terrible! How could anyone do that? I would feel terrible if I ever did that, wich I would NEVER do. I hadn't thought about therapy dogs. That is a really good idea! Have you done obediance or something like that? I need to get my pups in obediance first. Well, thanks! That helped a lot!
no, I dont think any registry will accept the CKC registration, the high quality registries will cross register with each other, but this one is a low grade, register anything type place, that why alot of low grade breeders use it.
Anyone have any information on APRI? I have my girls breeder pedigree which has her parents AKC numbers on it, but the litter wasn't registered with AKC. I received a registration form for APRI and am still wondering whether I want to bother.
I like APRI. If I am correct they are a non profit organization and will register your dogs for free. I only registered a dog there once. I don't know if they are good or bad though. I guess good or bad depends on the person just because one person says it is bad does not mean it is. Not every person that uses ACA or CKC are bad breeders or lower class. You have to make that decision for yourself what one registry works best for you. I have heard of AKC breeders getting caught because they are puppy mills so it goes both ways.
I believe this is American Pet Registry? They just give you a certificate saying, yep this is your pet, and whatever breed you enter for it to be, really depends on what you want to do with your pup. If you simply want a wonderful pet, i wouldnt bother personally, but of course I like to show conformation.
Where did you get your pup, it may be possible to get AKC papers on the pup if both parents were registered, unless it was a breeder that AKC suspended.
I got them from a breeder. She said they could be registered in AKC when I called about them but I don't know if it is true. I am going to call her to get the scoop. I called 2 days ago but she is out of town and wont be back till Mon. I will call then.
yes dear, we did obedience with her! We started her in April and she just finished last week.
We did it at petsmart...It was the only thing that worked with my hours.....
She is as smart as a whip. Hell, the last day she learned roll over in 5 min. But she is very food motivated, so its very easy. She does all commands either by voice or hand signals. When we come up on strangers we make her sit before they can pet her. When we cross the street, we make her sit before hand....she is very well mannered!
Stitch's weakness is children and elderly. She honestly has a strange attraction to them. I have never seen a dog who loved kids so much.
I am in the process of getting her therapy trained next, and hope to be able to take her to Rainbow Babies and Childrens hospital for most of her therapy visits.
andbooker In my opinion they are the same as AKC (CKC) I know people on here probably think I am some jerk for liking them but I don't care. AKC is more strict than CKC. AKC started with open book registry when it first came about and now CKC is doing it. When they are done they will not allow anyone to just register a dog with some pictures and signatures. Just like AKC started out doing which I think people have forgotten. That does not make them a bad registry. All the rules that AKC has and is trying to do now has ticked off a lot of breeders. I get e-mails from my AKC registerd breeder friends and they are always getting upset at how something is changing and AKC is just not being the best for them. AKC is great if that is what you like. CKC works for me that is what I like. Again it does not make anyone a bad breeder or lower class just because you have CKC dogs. That is just a prejudice that needs to stop.
ACA is also nice to have. APR is free and ok to have, but if you have APR I would also have ACA or CKC.

I have seen dogs registered with CKC (continental) , APR, ACA, etc. Some resemble closely enough the breed standard, but many are terrible examples of the breed, some are even mixed with a bit of somethng else, but since the pic was "close enough" and "my friend signed a paper and said it looks ok", well, Congrats, you have registered dog!
But, unless you are intending to show in conformation shows, it doesnt really matter the regitry, its still your pet, just love it!
