Hi, I wasn't logged into this sight but was looking at some questions and saw the discussion on AKC and ACA. I have a female pug that is AKC and a male that is ACA. I had to double register female under ACA and her litter of puppies as AKC will not except a ACA registered dog. Not sure why but ACA will and my daughter has both and has had to register under ACA. Neither one of us has had any trouble selling the puppies. ACA gives a tag to your dog when you register them with an 800 Number and can sign them up with tag number and if lost they are in their register. It also costs less to register them at ACA. They are pure bred it is just a different club. Check out the web sight www.acainfo.com
ACA, along with Continental Kennel Club, APRI, APR, etc. are the puppymillers and backyard breeder's friend. They will register anything with a pulse. All the Amish millers in PA use ACA. It is nothing but a papermill to "register" poorly bred puppies.
i like how you can get a "high quality" printable version of this form...AND the contact e-mail address is an AOL address, not to say anything bad about AOL, as I have it, but usually most businesses have another account set up with thier website. This "registry" looks pretty shady.

how much cheaper does akc have to get for these other registries ...if you cant pay 20 to 25 bucks to register a litter you dont need to breed then...
there are more registries but they are all junk..my view is AKC, UKC and Canadian KC and the like are the only ones worth a darn...you got stuck when you bought one..and now your breeding more you can only register that way...you can transfer AKC any where..but others cant say the same...
This is my first ever messaging, so hear it goes. We have bred Bischon Friese's AKC in the past. No problems. We just bred our AKC Reg. Min Schnau. to a ACA REG. Min Schnauzer, only to find out that the AKC will not recognize the Male or the litter. I have a problem with that. The male is Pure bred and the owners have the generational charts. It just makes no sence. And to reply to a previous message I do not believe the ACK recognizes the UK or the Canadian Reg, either
lenots-it makes a lot of sense. the pedigree is just scrap paper. this is one of those registries that accept dogs you find and claim as purebred right? So that male could have paperwork but his grand sire came from a pound and god knows what he really is? You just can't be sure. They allow any dog into the gene pool and let them claim it as purebred-that makes the whole registry junk,its polluted.
