    David, I couldn't agree more on supply/demand being the heart of the issue. Nobody would even be discussing entry details if AKC and MN modified the qualification requirements to alleviate pressure...

    I also understand the economics of a pro not getting their entire truck entered. Would be tough to justify the trip for just a portion of their dogs. Same applies to Amateurs though too and has an...

    Glen, I agree with your statement regarding the number of dogs not getting in, but the mix of dogs (pro vs. amateur handled) is what seems to be the biggest problem and is resulting in an unfair...

    Good changes, but I heard there is going to be a scratch fee attached to that capability prior to close and a fee to get on the wait list. Is that true? I didn't think AKC rules allowed a fee to...

    Excellent post Jack! That is what I've been saying as well. Everyone is trying to put band-aids on all the peripheral effects without adressing the real problem. Supply either needs to increase or...

    Paul, you hit the nail on the head. Similar to the point I made earlier. Neither the AKC, MNRC or member clubs desire to change the status quo. They are all making money and tests are full. ...
