    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I just purchased a beautiful little beagle puppy. She is registered through the UKC, I am just wondering what the difference between UKC and AKC are. I knew that I did not want her to be APRI, but I don't know the difference between these two. :)
