I'm not suggesting the NAVHDA registry is better, since you can register any AKC dog in it, just that the duplication is a waste of money. (And the AKC sends way too much junk mail.) Thanks for the opportunity to clarify.
The dog is registered in NAVHDA because AKC provided the documentation (Certified Three Generation Pedigree). The by-laws in NAVHDA dictate that AKC pedigrees are the documentation required to register in NAVHDA. I for one, will tell all of my future puppy buyers that I will not register in AKC, if they care to do that, the three generation pedigree that I get from NAVHDA on my puppies will allow them to register with AKC.
Sorry, Bruce I hadn't read all the threads on the other site about the subject I do appreciate you taking the time to e-mail me back though and explaining some things. I have read them all now also and they are very interesting to me.

Thanks for the compliment Bruce, I am always looking for ways to improve the site, I have been hoping to get some of the experts or amatuers to email me some personally written articles on the ins and outs of the different GSP and DK tests such as agility and hunt tests and shows and training articles but havent found people to interested in writing an article yet. Hopefully somebody will step up and help with improving the site more. and write an article introducing us to their favorite hunt test or sport test or info on confimation showing, they do with their GSP or DK.. I think it would be a great addition to get some info from some of the guys and gals on there with their personal experiences in some of these areas..
also I still havn't figured out why the puppy classified's havn't taken off yet the site gets like 4 thousand hits a day but not many people listing pups or services and I dont get it heck its free..
So anyone with any ideas on ways to improve either of my websites please e-mail them to me I would love to here from you..
thanks again bruce and appreciate the thought but no need for any apology ..
