I don't have any thing to put in this thread but for new folks did want to point out there is CKC "Canadian Kennel Club" and CKC "Continental Kennel Club"

I believe the CKC here is referring to the canadian club and not the US continental club which has a very poor reputation for registering any and all dogs, including mutts.

yes , that is why I frequently write CanKC , because before this forum I had no idea about the "other ckc" -- no relation. CanKC is part of the FCI

It's also put on by the same club lol. You just don't really see that with AKC events as there are so many more clubs that are putting on AKC events than UKC.

But that is still relative. There are pockets where UKC is hugely popular. I haven't bothered with AKC events for years because there are so many UKC events, usually closer to me and cheaper, with a wider variety of events. They also seem to have more breeds (and have more groups). It's the same with CPE agility around here, very popular. However some areas of the country have never heard of CPE.

Oh yeah, I agree, but nationally, AKC is the big dog. I think I'll really enjoy doing UKC events once I figure them out and they pop up. It would be awesome to get a championship on my boy, even if no one else cares about it. I'll be extremely proud of a Ch. in front of his name. The total dog thing would also be awesome as I'm more interested in obedience and agility events than conformation. Maybe out in Michigan there are people that ask about UKC championships and stuff but I think most regional and national breeders worry more about AKC if they're doing conformation. The GSDCA is affiliated with the AKC so more people will naturally be drawn to it.

Again it's a matter of perspective. I'm not a member of the GSDCA and don't know any Am line people/breeders so I wouldn't even know how to find an AKC show. I don't know what a "national breeder" is.

I'm sure to the public the AKC stands out because they have events on TV, but considering how many people are duped into buying "papered" dogs from the petstore that are ConKC, APRI, etc I doubt that the general public really thinks the AKC is all that superior to other registries.

Liesje, Jack Onofrio Dog Shows, LLC has all the AKC show listings.


I reeeeally want to enter a dog in a UKC show. It looks and sounds fun and more my style.

Not all, but a lot

Infodog.com (MB-F) has many listings from all over the country

Just use the event search at AKC.org
Very user friendly.
Too many show superintendents to track that way, IMO.

They seem to be based on location. I've only used three ever. MB-F. Onofrio, and Roy Jones (haven't used RJ since living in WI)
