Trials keep breeders honest. Trials can be stressful and some dogs don't handle that stress whether it comes from the environment or from their nervous freaked out handler. There are many breeders (and I am not saying all who don't title) don't want to put their dogs under the scrutiny of others or have them judged. Buyers can also be fickle and one must have a lot of confidence in one's breeding stock to put them out there for all to see.
And, the biggest reason is that in the USA breeders don't have to do Jack with their dogs other than make puppies, and buyers will still come. Doing it right is expensive and takes time and when breeders can still sell puppies, many don't feel the need to deal with the hassles.
