AKC dollar deal days???

Postby torizmojo » Thu Feb 18, 2010 9:50 am

Anyone heard of it? Someone just posted a flyer on another list and it literally makes me nauseous.

I did call AKC and they confirmed that there is actually a program and they are going to send me the information to my email since its not available anywhere online.

Basically if a person registers 10 litters in a certain period of time, they get their 11th discounted to only ONE dollar. Talk about promoting puppy mills!!!! :twisted: :x [-X

Here's what they sent. I took screenshots of it to save it as a JPG since the original file is PDF. If anyone wants to check validity, just call the AKC's main number and they'll transfer you to breeder relations.

It is disturbing but I thought most puppy mills didn't use AKC anyway..I forget the ridiculous ones they use so they can sell dogs with "papers" :roll: of course some BYB are borderline puppy mills!

I know, I was kind of happy that many went to other registries. However I do think that promoting/rewarding 11 litters in 9 months is pretty irresponsible of them. :(

Didn't AKC support the Hunt's corporation too? The big middle man operation for puppy mills?
I find this disgusting and just food for AR fodder. But, AKC is a registration warehouse for the most part I guess, and the bottom line is registrations = money.

yes, one and the same. The membership fought back as they understood that AKC papers on dogs in pet stores ruins the good name of a breeder using AKC papers by association.

Hmmm... I suppose some of the top producing Golden, GSD, Lab (what were the top 10 breeds again?) kennels could easily fit within those parameters. That doesn't necessarily make them puppy-mills.

No, not puppy mills, but high volume breeders for certain. And I'm sure that as you are pointing out that there may very well be good breeders that will qualify, but unfortunately, I think their numbers are a far cry from what this marketing technique was trying to attract.

Maybe they need a new slogan "AKC- quantity, not quality"
or change their acronym to ACK.
