I think the AKC does a LOT of good and is a decent club for what they are -- an all breed registry. They have all breed shows, specialty shows, performance events and the like. They have the CAR program, the CGC and STAR puppy programs -- all that promote responsible dog ownership. And they also try to stay abreast of and fight bad canine legislation.
They also inspect kennels, arbitrate issues, and fine or suspend people for their behavior at events or having to do with the care of, conditions of dogs, and for descrepancies of the identification of dogs and litters.
I have no complaints about the AKC.
Just because a puppy is AKC does not make that puppy breedworthy, but that is true of EVERY other registry including the SV.
