Not trying to start a sparing match, but since I can now resume training (treatment done and cancer free) I'd like to hear the advantages and disadvantages of both. If I understand USA's bylaws correctly, I cannot be a member of both. In Michigan, USA seems to be predominate. Any thoughts?

Re: WDA vs USA

I know that for WDA you can participate in their events without being a member (or at least they are changing this). You only have to me a member to go to nationals.

I'm currently a member of both. My USA will be due in a few months so I'm waiting to see what happens. If this thing sticks, I guess I'll have to go with WDA because even though I'm in MI I go to shows and trials in the Chicago/IL/lower-WI areas and there are several clubs there that offer shows and trials. I haven't researched it enough to have any real allegiance to one or the other; it's just a matter of which offers more shows and trials. Also my dog has a WDA scorebook, has his tat and chip certified by the WDA, and the WDA will be doing his a-stamps so it's cheaper for me not to have to buy another scorebook and re-register my dog with USA.
