That wouldn't happen in UKC.
True. You can finish a crappy dog yourself in UKC for a lot less money
I have seen some GREAT examples of GSDs finish in UKC that wouldn't get a look in AKC (and wrongly so). I've also seen some absolutely horrid examples that are obviously "Just pets".
It happens in both rings, but it seems to happen a lot more in UKC, IMO.
