Default Did You Know?

Did you guys know that CKC (Continental Kennel Club) does offer conformation CH titles according to their breed standards? You just have to find a CKC kennel club that shows and offers the conformation classes to compete and you do earn points toward the CH title. So now with that said, why do people frown so much on a CKC registered dog? Would you consider a dog with unknown parentage and CKC registered with a CH title still less quality dog than an AKC registered dog with no show record? I know that the reasoning behind some people not being supportive of CKC is because you may or may not know the dog's bloodlines and genetic background, but would that still matter to you if the dog was CKC registered no background known, but happened to earn a CH title in conformation?

In my own personal opinion, even if the dog was CKC registered with no known pedigree and had earned its CH title in conformation, that dog is equivalent to one with AKC papers in my opinion. Why? Because CKC's breed standard is correct, all except for there is no mention of merle being a disqualification and any CH CKC dog obviously has exceptional conformation and is a quality dog. I've experienced this problem with people in the horse industry, as well. Some people in horses feel that if the horse doesn't have a pedigree attached with it then it's of inferior quality. However, my late mare was an exception to that case. No one knew her bloodlines, but her conformation was exceptional for her breed, her gaits were fluid and what the standard called for, and her temperament went above and beyond exceptional. She was also well trained and I had people asking to buy her from me for a $5,000 price tag. Now, for an unregistered horse that was a huge deal. So, yes papers MAY help the dog, but unless it's been shown and titled, I don't feel any reason why AKC dogs should command higher prices and be considered more valuable just because of their registration papers.
