DO AKC PAPERS MEAN YOU ARE GETTING A GOOD DOG?

ABSOLUTELY NOT!

AKC AND FRAUD? BULLIES? ETHICAL? DID YOU KNOW THAT AKC MAKES IT VERY DIFFICULT FOR SOMEONE WHO SUSPECTS PEDIGREE FRAUD? IF YOU SUSPECT PEDIGREE FRAUD, YOU HAVE TO PAY THE AKC $500.00 TO INVESTIGATE. WHY IS THAT? YOU GET TO GIVE THEM $500.00 AND THEN SEE IF THEY WILL EVEN CHOOSE TO GIVE YOU THE TIME OF DAY? I HAVE TO ASK; WHY WOULD ANYBODY IN THEIR RIGHT MIND PAY THESE PEOPLE TO REGISTER THEIR DOGS? A REGISTRY OF INTEGRITY WHERE YOU HAVE TO PAY THEM TO MAKE SURE IT IS? HMMMM. WHY NOT JUST MAKE EVERYBODY DNA ALL THEIR DOGS BEFORE BREEDINGC? THINK ABOUT ALL THE MONEY YOU COULD MAKE ON DNA KITS! WE ALL KNOW HOW YOU LIKE MONEY :) .

A REGISTRY OF INTEGRITY? IN MY OPINION, NO! READ ON,

APPARENTLY I AM NOT ALONE.

MANY AKC BREEDERS USE THE STRAW MAN THEORY TO ATTACK THOSE TRYING TO EXPOSE THEIR UNETHICAL AND DEISHONEST BUISINESS PRACTICES AND WHAT SOME MAY CONSIDER DOG ABUSE. Remember AKC does not require Micro Chipping. AKC does not require DNA to be put on file before breedings. AKC does not require health testing. One might ask why? Based on my observations and experiences it encourages false pedigrees and the breeding of sick dogs because it allows for all kinds of dishonest business to take place among high volume AKC breeders. Sort of like an open door inviting unethical behavior.

A straw man is a common form of argument and is an informal fallacy based on giving the impression of refuting an opponent's argument, while refuting an argument that was not advanced by that opponent. One who engages in this fallacy is said to be "attacking a straw man".

The typical straw man argument creates the illusion of having completely refuted or defeated an opponent's proposition through the covert replacement of it with a different proposition (i.e. "stand up a straw man") and the subsequent refutation of that false argument ("knock down a straw man") instead of the opponent's proposition.

This technique has been used throughout history in polemical debate, particularly in arguments about highly charged emotional issues where a fiery "battle" and the defeat of an "enemy" may be more valued than critical thinking or an understanding of both sides of the issue.

Allegedly, straw man tactics were once known in some parts of the United Kingdom as an Aunt Sally, after a pub game of the same name where patrons threw sticks or battens at a post to knock off a skittle balanced on top.

One breeder litterally steal someone dog and then uses this theory to defend their actions. Because this particular breeder is a high volume AKC breeder, the AKC protects them based on my observations and documents I have collected.

THE AKC IS LIKE THE HOTEL CALIFORNIA - quote "YOU CAN CHECK OUT ANY TIME YOU WANT BUT YOU CAN NEVER LEAVE" unquote. Try having your dogs removed from their registry.

FOLLOW THE MONEY! AKC HANDLERS - EACH HANDLER PAYS A $250.00 TO BE REGISTERED ACCORDING TO THEIR WEBSITE: http://www.akc.org/handlers/links.cfm IT ONLY MAKES SENSE THAT AKC REGISTERED DOGS HANDLED BY REGISTERED AKC HANDLERS WILL MOST LIKELY WIN EVERYTIME. Here is an example of what AKC handlers may charge:

Best in Show………….……$450
Reserve Best In Show.........$270
Best In Show National…….$470
Best in Specialty…………..$250
Group I.……...………………$95
Group II……....………………$90
Group III………....……………$80
Group IV………...……………$75

HOW LONG DO YOU THINK AKC REGISTERED HANDLERS WILL CONTINUE TO PAY THE AKC FEE IF THEY DO NOT WIN? I HAVE PUT THE PIECES TOGETHER AND FOLLOWED THE MONEY TRAIL. REGISTRATIONS, ENTRY FEES, AKC "SO-CALLED" BREEDERS OF MERIT, AND FINALLY THE AKC HANDLERS. WHEN YOU HAVE A REGSITRY WHO WILL REGISTER ANYTHING, REGARDLESS OF HEALTH AND OWNER'S SIGNATURE IT CAN ONLY MEAN ONE THING IN MY EYES. ANYBODY CAN WIN WITH THE RIGHT AKC HANDLER, AND ANYBODY CAN REGISTER ANYTHING WITHOUT REGARD FOR HEALTH OR OWNER'S PERMISSION. BASED ON MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCES AND WATCHING THE DOGS "WINNING" IN THE RING; I HAVE COME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT THERE ARE FAR SUPERIOR DOGS THAT NOBODY HAS SEEN BECAUSE THEY DO NOT WISH TO THROW THEIR MONEY AT AN ORGINIZATION WHO WILL NOT PROTECT THEM OR THEIR DOGS. AKC REGISTRATION TO ME IS LIKE THE "KISS OF DEATH" ! You do not have to be a rocket scientist to "follow the show money in AKC", Based on my observations; I have come to the conclusion that winning in the AKC ring has nothing to do with conformation, only money. Old, snooty, condescending AKC show breeders will give all their excuses; buy seriously, just follow the money!. I heard all the excuses like I am sickly and can't show my own dog. Yup, heard a lot of them. HOWEVER, YOU WOULD HAVE TO BE BLIND NOT TO SEE IT!

And while I am on the topic, I would like to mention how they will brag about the B.O.W.s., B.O.B, etc. etc. Really? This is very funny. So many times they are the only dog entered in their class. Wow, they beat themselves. Hey Congratulations! Do your research. Don't believe their big marketing. I have seen people post photos of these fancy "worthless" ribbons such as Best of Breed etc., and laugh so hard because they were the only Tibetan Mastiff entered. Even though they were the only dog, they still get those fancy meaningless ribbons!

WHAT IS THE TOP WINNING DOG MEAN? BASED ON WHAT I HAVE SEEN PERSONALLY, IT MEANS YOU HAVE SPENT THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS TO SEND YOUR DOG IN A CRATE WITH A BIG TIME HANDLER ALL OVER THE COUNTRY TO COMPETE AT EVERY POSSIBLE SHOW TO RACK UP POINTS. MOST OF THE TIME IF YOU DO THIS WITH A TIBETAN MASTIFF, THERE IS NO COMPETITION, SO YOU GO TO GROUP, AND GET A JUDGE THAT LIKES THE HANDLER , YOU RACK UP WHAT I REFER TO AS "UNEARNED" POINTS. BASED ON WHAT I KNOW AND SEE WITH MY OWN EYES, THIS DOES NOT MEAN YOU HAVE THE "BEST" DOG. ACTUALLY, BASED ON WHAT I HAVE SEEN, THE DOG IS USUALLY A DOG I WOULD NEVER WANT, BOTH FOR HEALTH AND STRUCTURE. I AM THINKING THE OWNER HAS JUST WASTED A BUNCH OF MONEY CARTING THE DOG AROUND THE COUNTRY, ONLY MAKING THE BREED WORSE BECAUSE PEOPLE WILL BUY THE MARKETING AND HYPE. DON'T BUY INTO THE AKC "GAME". FIND YOURSELF A DOG YOU LIKE FROM A NORMAL "REPUTABLE" PERSON AND I THINK YOU WILL BE MUCH HAPPIER. YOU WILL PROBABLY GET A MUCH HEALTHIER AND ALL AROUND BETTER DOG. THESE ARE MY OPINIONS BASED ON MY EXPERIENCES, WHAT I HAVE SEEN, AND BY COMPARING DOGS OUTSIDE THE RING TO THOSE TROLLED AROUND BY A HIGH PAID AKC HANDLER.

Winning in the AKC show ring isn't about the merit or quality of the dog based on what I have seen. It is very subjective. It's not like soccer or baseball where a win is defined on performance. It is based solely on the judge's subjective opinion which can be influenced by all the ourside factors and money trail I have described above. I have found most of the show scene to be filled with nasty, catty, and vindictive people. I think it is a big waste of time and money and has no real value when seeking out a puppy .

WHY DOG SHOW ENTRIES DECLINE 
AND CLUBS SUFFER - "VENDORS"

To sum it up IN MY OPINION BASED ON MY DIRECT EXPERIENCES;
AKC showing is not about structure; it's all about the money, politics, power,
and I think it is a huge waste of time and money!
