AKC may very well price itself out of the major elite market, that it considers itself to be in. Has AKC considered that its base of competition owners are a very small part of the whole versus income from regular small individual breeders?

I understand why, but in this economy with everyone struggling it is a bad time to raise. The amount is too much at one time to raise also. If I raised my fees like that I would lose customers. I think AKC has a good program but too many people are hurting right now. I raise Shih Tzu and I was always proud to say mine are AKC. People will just stop registering their pups or register them CKC...

It would make sense to allow a discount to people that show their dogs in AKC competition since they are contributing to the AKC coffers through their entry fees. Common sense needs to enter in here. If AKC keeps raising their fees the show people will cut down on their entries into dog shows. Perhaps AKC could cut down on their expenses and the dog showing public a break.
