Curiosity...

Does anybody know the numbers of labs (AKC and/or UKC) that hold the various hunting titles? I'm just wondering what percentage of registered labs are JH, SH, MH, FC, SHR, HR, HRCH, etc...

Ok tried to find number of Labradors registered by AKC but could only find the number for 2002 of 154,616 (from an article by Bill Daley).
For 2011 there where:
1163 JH titles
697 SH titles
587 MH titles

For 2002 there were:
1347 JH titles... 1 JH for every 115 labs registered in 2002
619 SH titles .... 1 SH for every 250 labs registered in 2002
349 MH titles ... 1 MH for every 443 labs registered in 2002
65 FC ............. 1 FC for every 2379 labs registered in 2002
53 AFC ........... 1 AFC for every 2917 labs registered in 2002

There are already more than 400 dogs qualified for Master National this year. What does that tell us about the knowledge and ability of trainers today.

The statistics I would like to know ...

1. How many FC/AFC female Labs are there still running in trials this year ?
2. How many female Labs obtain FC titles or AFC titles on the average per year ?

I've got one so I want to know how "rare" she is.

I know that there are more male Labs entered in trials than female Labs.

If you had the last 12 issues of the Field trial news, you could probably figure that out pretty quick. (at least question #2)

The summary issue would reveal the answer to #1.

The Nationals boil it down for dogs entered there as well.

Comparing an event entry to the number of dogs registered per year is of dubious value. As a dog may qualify for the master national at age 6 months + if it passes the number of hunt tests required, and as there are several dogs still running the MN at/after age 12, you are looking at a minimum of a decades worth of registrations that are eligible to run each master national. So if we take the 137,867 Labs registered in 2005 and multiply this number by 10 we have a pool of way over a million labs eligible to run the MN (providing they meet entry requirements). Add to this the more than half million Goldens, 70000 Chessies, etc. and you have a total eligible population of about 2 million dogs. So in actuality we are looking at a 400 dog entry as a representation of 2 million + which is a much smaller percentage.


Perhaps a better way to look at the number of entries is that the MN generates 400 entries representing the best hunting retrievers in all 50 states. Or on average the best 8 dogs per state.

David,

AKC publishes this info each year. You can find it here for the last several years: http://www.akc.org/events/event_statistics.cfm
You may need to wade through a lot of other data to find what you want.
