Reverse CGN Fee Hike on CKC Registered Dogs
Canine Good Neighbour Fee Hikes
In December of 2015 the Canadian Kennel Club announced new fees for Canine Good Neighbour Evaluations. They are now charging an extra $10.00 to have the CGN Title added to a purebred dog’s record which in essence is discriminating against purebred dogs and penalizing purebred dog ownership which the CKC is supposed to be protecting and promoting.
To the Canadian Kennel Club
The recent fee changes for Canine Good Neighbour evaluations are discriminatory towards pure bred dogs and their owners. Charging extra for a CGN title is punishing those dog owners who actually care about CKC registration and purebred dogs and are in many cases CKC members.
Canine Good Neighbour Evaluations are a way to engage with all dog owners and encourage the general public to get a real title on their purebred dog as well as encourage all dog owners whether purebred or not to train their dogs to have good manners.
We understand that the Canadian Kennel Club has expenses and raising the fees for Canine Good Neighbour Testing in a moderate way to help cover costs is not at issue. The owners and breeders of Canadian Kennel Club Registered dogs should be celebrated and rewarded for their accomplishment and participation not penalized by extra fees.
We the undersigned are asking the Canadian Kennel Club to remove the extra fees for a Canine Good Neighbour Title on Canadian Kennel Club registered dogs.
