JaderBug Posted December 26, 2011 Report Share Posted December 26, 2011 Just a question about 'big hats' or other Open handlers/trainers/clinicians, etc. who also judge AKC herding events. Isn't that a double-standard? Why do some of these people campaign so hard against AKC in one venue and yet support them by becoming an AKC judge? From AKC's website, to be eligible to be a judge you have to "have trained and handled two dogs that have earned an AKC Herding Excellent (HX) title" as well as attending seminars and taking tests, all of which I would assume mean shelling out money to the AKC. Not to mention being a judge at these events and attending in and of themselves is supporting them. Is that not supporting the AKC and therefore counteracting any attempts by Border Collie-ers, USBCC, USBCHA, ABCA, among others?? Is it that it's not OK to support AKC in any way, shape, or form, but it's perfectly fine to take money from them? (even if that means having to support them to get to that point?) Is that not extremely hypocritical? Just something I've been wondering... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
