    Marissa,
    Do you feel the ukc titles are the same as akc? I have seen akc test, and done ukc test. I feel the ukc test are more realistic.

    yes I have several ukc titled sire and dam to my dogs I also have many akc titled sire and dam to my dogs. Some people run only akc or ukc not both. I wouldn't discount a pup just because the parents have only ukc title and not akc title. I have ran lots of akc and ukc hunt test and a title is a title to me.. I would buy a pup with parents having a ukc title and have several times

    I think it depends on the judges setting the test up.
    But I think often times they are very close.

    And the akc takes more dog skill. Which is better?

    I think either an upper level UKC or AKC hunt test title shows the dog has desire and Willingness to do the work. That's what I like.

    Now Field Trial titles are another ball game of course.

    So true with the beagles.
    Some FC beagles are a pity to watch hunt.
    My young pup is 13" FTCh x HBCH and she can be a little rough but jumps and runs a rabbit good under the gun.

    Nope, like HRC a lot, but to the general public the AKC titles carry more weight. AKC tougher 3 series vs 2 are the reason in my opinion.

    Fortunately, all of our dogs have both UKC, AKC, and Parent Club Working Certificate titles. Therefore, our puppy buyers do not have that dilemma.
