How Much Does AKC Registration Cost?

The AKC, or American Kennel Club, is a registry for purebred dogs in the United States.  Aside from registering dogs, the club also promotes events such as the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show and the National Dog Show.  This club is the largest registry in the United States and is the only not-for-profit registry.  For a purebred dog to be registered with the AKC, the dog’s parents will have to be registered with the AKC as the same breed.

    WAY TOO MUCH. legal scam for breeders. as they place limited registration upon you in a legal scam that protects lying breeders.. sure they will sell you a 5000.00 champion pup, “never informing you of this legal loophole ” this is how it works .. they never mention the nasty words “limited registration to you” this way you buy the pup from them and they gain all control over you .. yes breeders..they place that unknown to you,, they do not want you to buy that expensive champion bred dog from someone else..breeders want your money.. “now they will end you and any potential future threat with the legal loophole of limited registration” now you cannot show your new champion pup,, you can never register a future pup you bred.. your future is destroyed and there selling ability is never challenged by your accomplishments.. which keeps the money flowing for them. and this limited registration is added on the sly and gives them the power with a legal document…BE Careful because the AKC will protect them with this screw job and will do nothing to help you in any way shape or from akc. they are just there to collect the second part of the screw job.. they even state boldly they will have no involvement in your dispute.. and why don’t they make registration papers flagged with information on this limited registration.. inform and educate the public on this scam.. oh no way …the AKC scammers want your cash worse than the crooked breeders and their B.S. scams.

    Was it worth it? Yes
