Re: Ukc Owes Us

NOTHING, They are a registry plain and simple! We pay for the registry service and they deliver exactly what we pay for, my dogs papers tell me everything I paid for. Anybody that thinks just because they attend a hunt or act as a MOH is benefiting UKC alone is just plain stupid. Putting titles on dogs benefits the dogs owners more than it does UKC, selling pups and dogs benefits the owners more than it benefits UKC. No one forces anybody to do business with UKC, it is by choice, either you like it or you don't. It's simply amazing to see the SAME FEW GUYS get on this board and bash UKC, like UKC OWES them something, well they don't. UKC is under no obligation to sponsor Hunt, Shows or any other program, but the do. If you don't like these programs, don't participate. Pulling percentages out of the air to sound impressive only to look stupid. Reality a few crybabies don't speak for the UKC Community. You want to cry and complain, get on Facebook, the dollar registries don't even want you, wonder why? Dave
My statements are true, UKC OWES us nothing, WE are the ones that hold our Hunts and programs in our hands. UKC provides us with the programs and formats, we MUST do our part. It's shameful for anyone that thinks anyone OWES them anything. Anything worth having is worth working for. Responsible thinking and offers to help are needed, it's the constant winning and griping that's counter productive to anyone's success. Suggestions are one thing, bashing is totally unacceptable and only causes breaks in our ranks. United we stand divided we fall. My opinions do not reflect any policy that UKC has in place, but are intended to make us think about our actions. Some on here do nothing but complain about the hunters, the dogs they hunt and about UKC itself. If you can't be part of solution, then you are just a part of the problem. Dave
I will stick with my original statement. Any company my not we" their customer base anything but offering a quality product and listening to customer input along with marketing a product that is in demand is the way to sucess. Anyone in any sort of retail, customer service or marketing knows this as do they. It is impossible to please every customer but in order to grow you must evolve, this holds true regardless of what business you are in. You statement of they are just there to send out registration papers is a falsehood goes against all their founding principals and even the motto today and the many programs along with competitions offered and not just for hounds but the many other working breeds. I suppose no company "owes" anyone anything but if any wish to be successful that is not the attitude any take. Nor do I think that is the attitude this one chooses either. All choose sucess over failure, profit over loss and growth over being stagnant. Being open to suggestion and even criticism is how to achieve this. Some here, like anywhere, may not offer this in the most well worded way or always the most constructive way but that shouldn't discount their voice. Some who speak the loudest may care the most.
My original statement I'm sticking to which I mean in no disrespectful way it is simply fact most of which can be verified from their website by anyone....
Dave your statements blow their "Total Dog" and family friendly events philosophy to he//._
UKC was built upon as a working dog registry and for more than half a century has used this as a basis for a variety of events that showcase dogs in their working environment through competitions. It has grown to include all sorts of various breeds from I believe it's 7 catagories all each with it's history of purpose as working abilities even as companions._
Hounds may only make up a smaller percentage of the total of dogs they register but are the #1 overall out of all the breeds._
Unlike other some other registries their use of this "Total Dog" philosophy includes more than just the conformation of the dog. It includes the ability to showcase it's purpose._
Like any successful business it is good business to have a product that is pleasing to the customer and to listen to the customer. Growth and profit are dependent upon it. Here that would include recommendations on how to better their product whether I'm hunting in one of their various competitors hunts, participating in a show, weight pulls, dock jumping ect.
