From my experience, the AKC site was built to cater to "companion" owners, or prospective owners. The person(s) building the site don't appear to have been given enough GOOD information as to what should go where, or what anything should be linked to. If AKC was doing their job, advertisers would not be able to claim that clearances are being done in compliance with the parent club and there are no clearances at all on the parents of the litters being listed. All clubs are required to supply a list of members each year (there are some good, and "lack of merit" reasons for this), so how hard could it possibly be to dump that info into a database and then check to see if the advertiser is actually a member of ANY clubs? It is just a huge fail, from an ethical breeder's perspective.
