    Dog Registries (Legit and Bogus)

    thought this might be something to put in as a sticky....when people go looking for that registered dog, they can be more informed as to what registries are legit and which are thru puppymills.....can we make it so that anyone that knows of any others can put them in as needed, in case i forgot a few (which i'm sure i did)?



    Continental registries (real)
    AKC.....American Kennel Club
    UKC.....United Kennel Club
    CKC.....Canadian Kennel Club

    there are also breed registries such as:
    AADR.....All American Dog Registry
    ABCA.....American Border Collie Association
    ACDCA.....American Cattle Dog Club of America
    ADBA.....American Dog Breeders Association
    AIBC.....American International Border Collie Association
    APBR.....American Pit Bull Registry (can be questionable)
    ARBA.....American Rare Breed Association
    ARHA.....American Rabbit Hound Association
    ASCA.....Australian Shepherd Club of America
    ISDS.....International Sheep Dog Society
    JRTCA.....Jack Russell Terrier Club of America
    NASDS.....North American Sheep Dog Society


    Bogus Registries
    AAPBA.....All American Premier Breeds Assoc. (All American Pit Bull)
    ACA.....American Canine Association
    ANDR.....American National Dog Registry
    APRI....American Pet Registry, Inc (also, American Purebred Registry; no "I")
    APBR.....American Pit Bull Registry
    ARU.....Animal Registry Unlimited
    CKC.....Continental Kennel Club (do not confuse w/ Canadian Kennel Club)
    CRCS.....Canine Regisration and Certification Services
    DRA.....Dog Registry of America
    FIC.....Federation of International Canines
    NAMBR...North American Mixed Breed Registry
    NAPDR.....North American Purebred Dog Registry
    NKC.....National Kennel Club
    UABR.....United All Breed Registry
    UKCI.....Universal Kennel Club International
    WWKC.....World Wide Kennel Club

    Questionable registries:
    BFK/BFKC.....Bonafide Kennel Club
    IABCA.....International All Breed Canine Association of America
    SDR.....Sporting Dog Registry
    these are just a few....they keep cropping up so it's hard to keep up

    when importing from other countries, check out this site for registries of that country.....your pup/dog should be registered thru one of these in their country....

    Re: Dog Registries (Legit and Bogus)

    Actually I think that you got 2 of them mixed up...
    ADBA is a MUCH better registry than APBR[APBT] - (APBT will register any "pitbull" looking dog) ADBA registers UKC, AKC...etc.http://www.adbadog.com/p_pdetails.asp?fpid=5

    Here's the APBR

    the site that i looked at was classifying ADBA as a puppymill registry, so that is what i went by....i wasn't sure on the APBT but if you think i should i can remove that one and change as needed....

    Lol, I was gonna mention that but you beat me too it

    This is a nice resource though. A lot of new dog owners get fooled by all the fancy registries their pet is apparently part of.

    Re: Dog Registries (Legit and Bogus)

    ADBA is much better, they have shows and don't take dogs without pedigree's etc like APBR does...
    They are the big ones with the weight pulling, etc... at least for the APBT, I'm not sure how great they are for other breeds but I see a LOT of APBT's that are dual registered with ADBA and UKC/AKC...which doesn't mean anything but they do hold a lot of shows and do have standards.

    Re: Dog Registries (Legit and Bogus)

    ok, i'll go make those entries and the change (thanx on the info for Pit, i def am not up on the breed real strong , other than i think they're awesome....)

    moderator(s), any way that we can make this an open post that anyone who knows of more can enter them in?

    wabana, would that be ASCA?

    AC, should i put APBT (i changed it to APBR) under the "bogus", then?

    I don't know if it qualifies as being bogus per say since I don't deal with them...but I know their registration process is pretty lenient.

    I haven't had dealings with them either - but I'd probably be more inclined to but them under the 'bogus' category. Especially if they aren't verifying that their dogs actually are APBTs. With all the look alike and poor breeding that exists these days - registries need to be doubly careful. That means paying more attention then just checking if the dogs they register have a blocky head and muscles.

    i went ahead and put it under the "bogus" as it might be something they want to consider in registering a Pit....i can move it again if need be.....or, maybe leave it under both?

    Works for me, I do like their website and health, rescue, etc information...but the registration gets to me.

    Re: Dog Registries (Legit and Bogus)

    In Canada you can not advertise a dog as purebred unless it is registered with the Canadian Kennel Club. Just recently my sister went to look at a CKC registered Chihuahua and it turned out to be Continental Kennel Club, I don't know if the dogs registered there are even purebred.

    Rather than post a long list, here's a site that discusses a bunch of the bogus registries: http://www.winddreamer.net/labfiles/...egistries.html

    Also be aware that a lot of puppymills have AKC/UKC registered dogs and litters. So registry is no guarantee.

    Re: Dog Registries (Legit and Bogus)

    That is a GREAT list!!! Thanks for posting it - I was actually trying to find a list of the "bogus" paper registry types recently ...

    Ok, just wanted to add one for legit breed club registries - ARHA (American Rabbit Hound Association). They're mainly for Beagles but do register Bassets, Harriers, etc. They are an open registry, so you do have to be careful when purchasing an ARHA hound. But they are a great registry with good trials that represent true to life hunting situations moreso than any other registry, IMHO.

    Also, for bogus paper registries, I don't think I saw UABR (United All Breed Registry). It's one that I see growing in popularity lately ...
