PKC has 60% in awards, 20% for the club, 12% PKC, 8% Escrow. That's $5/dog for the club.
UKC, under this scenario, if they match the participant awards of PKC would be giving 60% in awards, 12% to the club, and 28% to UKC. That's $3/dog for the club. That's 40% less for the clubs (the backbone), assuming no escrow.
AKC offers 70% to participants, 30% to clubs (but after accounting for their per dog fee), it's really 16% to clubs, and 14% to AKC. That equates to $4/dog for the club.
All of these scenarios exclude licensing/event fees.
Why (if you are UKC) would you present clubs with scenarios of making 40% less than they would with PKC, and 25% less than they would with AKC???
So, from a club perspective, it's:
I'm sure UKC is aware of the competition, and what they offer.
Something doesn't smell right!
There are better ways to take on the competition.
Already alot of talk around here about going pkc. Guess run the numbers and see. If there's enough people for it Ukc may take a back seat. Rules vary but same principal strike and tree your dog, right?
