United Kennel Club: Limited Privilege
"UKC Limited Privilege Registration is offered by UKC to encourage all dog owners to be active and enjoy time with their dogs. This program accepts Mix Bred dogs (also known as American Mixed Bred dogs, or AMB), purebred dogs of unknown or incomplete pedigrees, purebred dogs registered with registries the UKC does not acknowledge, and purebred dogs with disqualifying faults. Dogs enrolled in the LP Program must be spayed or neutered and, if accepted, are eligible to compete in all Performance Events for which the breed is eligible; however, they are not eligible for conformation events. LP listed purebred dogs of the Gun Dog Group are eligible for Hunting Retriever events
Documents necessary for Limited Privilege Registration are as follows:
Step 1: Completed Limited Privilege Registration Application
Step 2: Spay/neuter certificate, or if not available, then have a licensed veterinarian complete and sign the statement on the Application for Limited Privilege Application.
Step 3: Fee of $20.00
(Optional) if you wish to have the dog identified as a specific breed, two color photographs (3 inches x 3 inches minimum) of the dog, one standing in profile and the other a close up of the dog's head must be submitted so that the dog can be compared to the given breed standard."

AKC also has a similar program to the UKC's LP so you can compete in AKC events (except conformation) called AKC Canine Partners (AKC also has a PAL/ILP, but the dog has to be purebred and a breed recognized in AKC studbooks:)

bullyluv: Please take what people say here with a grain of salt. Most of them don't know anything about CKC except for what they may have heard some from someone else.
I can tell you from first hand experience that CKC is no worse than UKC or ADBA. Almost all my ADBA/AADR dogs are dualed with the CKC b/c we do not have an AADR club in my state or any state close by. We have an ADBA club, but they only hold one show a year - if that. The CKC was holding events in my state long before ADBA or AADR & usually held several events a year.
As a result, I have been going to CKC pulls & shows in my state for years. I have had a great time at every one of them & here's a little secret for you - 99.9% of the APBTs you compete against in the CKC are also ADBA registered. In years of going to CKC events have yet to meet one APBT that was not.
Now CKC did bring upon itself a bad reputation b/c they had lax registration rules for a while & b/c they were one of the first KCs to register hybrids. But the ADBA had very lax single registration rules for over 100 years. In fact I personally know of a fellow who registered a CKC dog into the ADBA! And guess what the ADBA is now doing? Registering hybrids! :eek:
And before anyone howls "but CKC registers mutts!" I say "name me a KC that doesn't." The ADBA has Whopper dogs & the like. The UKC has Gotti dogs & the like. The fact is ALL KCs operate on the honesty of it's applicants. last I looked, NO KC is going to go door to door to investigate the claims of the applicants. Heck the ADBA requires $500 before they will even investigate a report of paper hanging!
So whether folks want to admit it or not, when it comes to ADBA, UKC or CKC you've pretty much got six of one & half dozen of another. The ADBA & UKC are more established & have a better reputation, but the bottom line is they have done or are doing the same thing CKC has done or is doing.
Just something to think about.
Peace & happiness ...

It really depends on how much activity you want to do. Where I live, all the registries have only one or two shows around here, so since I want to work my dogs and stay active, I go where the show is regardless. But when It comes to breeding, we are MUCH MORE PICKY. That is where you get the history.
