I don't know a specific difference but I can tell you that AKC is TERRIBLE to work with! They were so bad that we switched registries. I don't know how CKC works but it doesn't take much to pass up AKC! You could try APR. That's what we switched to. They're nice to work with. Also:
AKC= American kennel club
CKC= Continental Kennel club
APR= American Pet Registry        BYE!

I have a male Shih Tzu who is registered with AKC and a female who is registered with CKC. If they are to have puppies, what would the puppies be labeled, as far as kennel club? Would I register them AKC or CKC? Thanks!

You can't register the pups if the parents are different registries. When you register the pups, you have to have info on their papers from both the parents and if one of the parents isn't registered there, they can't give you the papers. You'll have to duel register one of your dogs to the other registry. May I recommend CKC? I was in the same situation as you. I decided to go with APR instead of AKC but I had to get some info from AKC before I could dual register. It took them TWO MONTHS to send me the info I needed and by that time, it was almost too late. The pups were about ready to sell! I don't know how good CKC is but it's gotta beat two month mail service!!

AKC is much better, but CKC does have good standards as well. As for APR. I do not consider them anything great. I bought a dog from a breeder who was only APR, and my dog looks nothing like what I was shown; and this was "suppose" to be a top breeding pair. I suggest going with the kennel that is best known. I mean, how many APR competitions do you see on the Television? AKC is harder to get into because they have HIGH standards. So, I suggest going with the better two, CKC and AKC!

We're in the same situation but with pugs. CKC female, AKC male.  We registered the male with CKC immediately after we got his AKC papers just to avoid problems.  The AKC, in our experience is snotty and unbelievably difficult to deal with.  So far, the CKC is much better, however, you won't get the higher selling price on the pups if they're CKC registered.  If you breed CKC and AKC the pups will be CKC registered because AKC won't do it.

I'm a little late jumping in here about the AKC.  I guess anyone could start a registration organization and collect fees from the naive and the uninitiated.

An AKC registration guarantees that this puppy/dog is purebred in the breed so represented.  Now, this is based somewhat on the honesty of the breeder because pedigrees and AKC papers can be falsified, although, it doesn't happen that much by the majority of breeders.

There is an AKC Standard on each breed and it is in most cases a standard that developed over hundreds of years based on the purpose of the breed, i.e. sighthounds for far-sightedness and speed to hunt for his master.  Or a lapdog for beauty, temperament for companionship.  

That pedigree and the AKC papers behind ensure that the puppy you just purchased has those qualities.  You will know what to expect. Even if you purchase the same breed from another country that standard will be very close to the AKC's

The reason it takes "two months" is because of the amount of puppies that are registered every month and the structures put in to insure this puppy is as claimed.  You don't have to wait for those papers to arrive to sell your puppies, you are sent a pink slip to give to the new owner.  The thing is not to wait until the last minute to apply, send in as soon as the litter is  born.

This is for the purpose of  breeding and keeping the Standard intact.  If you just want a nice pet puppy, inspect the parents, the breeders, the surroundings and the papers aren't important.

AKC, it appears is more interested in the amount of money they can get from you than it is about the quality of the dog or the quality of life the breeding dogs have. I have been breeding for over 20 years and have just in the past 5 years changed over or dual registured all of my dogs ckc,  /they are much easier to work with, still require the same strict standards, they even offer a picture registration.  What a blessing if your pet gets lost! Don't let anyone tell you CKC is not as good as AKC.  It is better.  They send your puppy papers to you soon enough so that the papers can go with the puppy.

Well AKC holds a higher standard than CKC and APR just about anybody can send in a picture and have a registered dog nowadys. It takes hard work, PATIENCE and education to strive for the true conformation on the particular breed of dog you are wanting to register. So yes the AKC can be difficult not to just let backyard breeders sign up every dog they have for a quick buck...yet if you are not going to show your dog then having that paper that says your dog is better than that other dog means absolutely nothing. In terms of showing that paper is crucial in order to have a pedigree on your pup. Besides you should not breed your dog if their isn't at least three generations of champion bloodlines in you pups history. Trying to strive for the perfect conformation and temperament of each and every breed is the goal of the AKC. So the difference between AKC, CKC, and APR is AKC you plan to show your pup and attend akc events and with the others you are just registering your dogs lineage(puppies that have been whelped and who the sire and dam are)that's it. I don't mean to offend anyone but I believe everyone is entitled to their opinion.

How do you get in contact with the CKC?  I have been online and none of their home pages will display.  

I have an AKC registered dog however, she was breed with another AKC dog whose papers were never sent off.  Is there a way to register her puppies with the CKC?

I went through the CKC with my Siberian Husky, it's only $12.00 for standard registration. And you don't have to know the bloodline, DNA Certificate number and Breeder information. Just send in 3 photo's of the dog. You can do it online, or mail in the application.

Hi! I recently asked AKC this question about the parents being registered. One is CKC & one is AKC. AKC told me that they did not recognize CKC so the puppies would not be registered AKC

I think AKC is wonderful.  They have always been there to answer questions and I feel CKC is used by people because they can't get registered with AKC because they are very particular which I appreciate because I have looked at a few CKC papered puppies and I am just blown away at what they try to pass off as a certain breed!  I personally wouldn't buy from CKC papered breeders regardless.  I have delt with APR but they will also take anything AKC will so it's kinda easy to get in that way so I just have stayed AKC because I feel I can trust that name.
