    Default QAA title

    Anyone know if the AKC made QAA a title yet?

    Looks like this is going to be voted on today, June 9. See page 9 of link http://images.akc.org/pdf/secretary_page/March_2014.pdf

    No word on the internet how the “final” vote went on the QA2 title. However, if y’all are interested you can get now get a AKC title for having your dog take a flying leap off the end of a dock.

    Why are you against it Raymond? I think it is kind of pointless, but I really don't see any downside to it.

    AKC and AKC delegates. It's done and approved, letters will be going out to member clubs and instructions will be on the AKC website within the next 90 days.

    Doesn't effect me at this time but will this be from whatever date forward or will it date back ????

    My understanding is it will be retroactive and you will need to follow the instructions on the AKC paperwork that will be coming soon if you want the title applied to dogs that have already met the requirements.

    This may not mean squat for the guys with the time, resources and the dog to take it to the next level, but for the guy that has worked his butt off, training his own dog it will mean alot, in many cases much more than a MH title.. I know it would for me.. I really don't see anything neg. about it.. I think you will see the Q entries go up..
