I am thinking about purchasing a puppy.  What is the difference between ACA vs. AKC?

 

 

 

 

Both the AKC and the ACA are dog registries.  The AKC is older than the ACA.

 

 

 

 

 

The AKC charges more money than the ACA to register a litter of puppies.  

 

 

 

 

 

AKC charges everyone an extra $10 for their lost and found tag service.  ACA includes the tag and lifetime lost and found tag service for free with their registration fee.

 

 

 

AKC has a greater number of dog shows than the ACA, but ACA offers a greater variety of events.

 

 

 

 

ACA has a much more comprehensive genetic health tracking database than AKC.

 

 

 

 

 

AKC now registers mix breeds.  ACA only registers pure bred dogs.

 

 

 

 

 

I thought AKC was only a pure breed dog show registry.

 

 

 

 

 

 

That was true at one time with AKC, but not today.  AKC now will register mutts as long as you send money to them.

 

 

 

 

 

But isn’t AKC non-profit corporation?

 

 

 

 

 

Any organization can file as a non-profit corporation and still make millions of dollars of profit.  The real difference between a profit and non-profit corporation is one pays taxes and the other is tax exempt.

 

 

 

When I registered my dog with AKC it took over four weeks before I got my papers back.

 

 

 

 

What does it mean when someone says their dog is microchipped?

 

 

 

 

 

 

A veterinarian has inserted a small microchip under the skin of the dog.  The microchip is actually a tiny transceiver.  When an animal control officer passes a special scanner over the back of your dog the microchip is energized by the scanner’s radio signal and reflects back a signal with the microchip’s number.  It is this number that is then attached to the ownership record at AKC or ACA.

 

 

What does this service cost?

 

 

 

 

 

ACA offers free microchip registration.  AKC charges an additional $17.50 for online enrolments and $19.95 for paper enrolments as of July, 2009.
