THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF TIBETAN MASTIFFS

WHAT DO WOLVES AND TIBETAN MASTIFFS HAVE IN COMMON? SCIENTISTS HAVE PROVEN A LOT MORE THAN YOU MAY THINK! TIBETAN MASTIFFS ARE NOT FOR EVERYONE :) REMEMBER THAT CUTE LITTLE FLUFFY PUPPY WILL GROW UP TO BE A WHOLE DIFFERENT ANIMAL.

THIS WOULD EXPLAIN WHY THE TIBETAN MASTIFF ONLY GOES INTO HEAT ONCE A YEAR, USUALLY IN THE FALL. MANY BEHAVIORS OF THE WOLF CAN BE SEEN IN THE TIBETAN MASTIFF.

CUT AND PASTE THE FOLLOWING LINK TO READ AN ARTICLE WHICH I HAVE FOUND DESCRIBES MUCH OF THE TM BEHAVIOR VERY WELL.

http://www.wolf-to-wolfdog.org/wws.htm

NOT ALL TIBETAN MASTIFFS ARE THE SAME AND YOU CANNOT PREDICT EXACTLY WHAT YOU MAY GET. ARE YOU PREPARED? THEY ARE STUBBORN AND UNPREDICTABLE BUT ONE THING FOR SURE IS THAT THEY ARE READY TO PUT THEIR LIVES ON THE LINE TO PROTECT THOSE THEY LOVE :)

These opinions are based on my experiences with most AKC show breeders.

I read it has been said that some of the most unpleasant humans on the face of the earth have been drawn to the breed to protect their own aggressive and hostile reputations and project them onto their exotic charges. This seems to be a very true and sad assessment with the Tibetan Mastiff. We had never owned an AKC registered dog prior to getting our first TM and just by doing what we thought was an act of kindness to a family in need we got sucked into a group of people whom we wish we never met. There are some very long time breeders out there and "corporate puppy mills" that use people for there own advantage and they do not seem to care about the people they hurt in the process.

Here is what I have learned:

1.Stay away from breeders who are constantly bragging about "championships"

2. Avoid breeders who breed multiple breeds.

3. Avoid contracts where you owe puppies back in the future or require showing.

4. Avoid highly inbred lines. This is called C.O.I. (co-incidence of inbreeding) Just search the subject and you can find many articles of explanation.

5. Avoid breeders who breed more than one breed and do not incorporate "all" their dogs into their house as family members.

6. Make sure that both parents have passed their hip, elbow and thyroid testing.

7. I have found that most AKC breeders only care about winning in the show ring and boy do they know how to brag! If you beat them fair and square they will bad mouth you and your dogs. Most are wealthy and are very condescending and arrogant. But just like humans; it isn't about the "temperature controlled environment" they keep their dogs. I believe that ethics and morals are most important. Just like having 200.00 shoes doesn't make you better; it is the same with breeders. I have actually found that the more they have acquired and brag; they more deceptive they become. So don't be fooled by "breeder of merits". They only want to win and do win with their politically connected and high paid handlers by judges who read the high priced ads that are placed in front of them.

THE ONLY REASON TO REGISTER YOUR DOGS WITH AKC IS TO PROTECT YOU AND YOUR DOGS. IT DOESN'T MEAN YOU WILL GET A GOOD DOG AT ALL OR EVEN KNOW WHO THE PARENTS OF YOUR NEW PUPPY IS.

IT'S PUPPY SEASON! BUYER BEWARE!

YOU HAVE PLENTY OF OPTIONS. A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO THOUGHT THEY COULD MAKE MONEY OFF THE TIBETAN MASTIFF HAVE BRED THE FIRST TWO TMS THEY HAD. I THINK THEY PROBABLY FOUND OUT THAT YOU DON'T MAKE MONEY OFF BREEDING TMS.

What does the Mafia and the AKC have in common? Based on my experiences; you have to give them money in order to protect the ownership of your dogs. I looked up an explanation of how people had to pay the MAFIA to protect them and based on my personal experiences and what the AKC did to Ron Bombliss of Kesang Camp, I get it. I can see a definate parallel. Mr. Bombliss had stopped registering his dogs with AKC for a couple of years and then the AKC suspended him for what I view as a fabricated charge. It is my belief that they had no juristiction to do so. By suspending him, they allowed his dogs to be registered in very deceptive ways by show breeders. On the other hand, they did not suspend a high volume show breeder who sold Mr. Bombliss' dog without his permission and was the subject of a DNA investigation. It was proven that the sire of the litter was not accurate. The breeder did not tell the AKC who they sold Mr. Bombliss' dog to without his permission AND YET THEY WERE NOT SUSPENDED FOR WITHOLDING THIS INFORMATION. Is the only way to stop the AKC from registering your dog without your permission to pay them? That is how I am understanding it. I have seen two cases where the AKC has registered dogs and litters without seeking verification of signatures one of which without a signature at all! Many AKC show breeders continue to tell me that the AKC does not determine ownership, however, it seems to me they are. So I get the impression the AKC is very much like the Mafia. If you don't pay registration fees; you don't get protection. I also feel like the AKC breeders, much like the Mafia, stick together, and will try to destroy anybody who doesn't play "the AKC game". My advice to anybody is that the only reason to register your dog with the AKC is not because it is a registry of accuracy, or a symbol of quality or health; but to protect yourself and your dogs from the AKC. If you try to argue with these crazy show people they will attack you. I think they do not want to have stricter requirements because then they couldn't "pay" to have the AKC take out people like Mr. Bombliss for things they have no jurisdiction to do.

DO NOT FORGET THE AKC "DOES NOT" REQUIRE MICRO CHIPPING SO HEALTHY ANIMALS CAN BE SUBSTITURED IN ORDER TO PASS HEALTH TESTS, THE AKC "DOES NOT" REQUIRE HEALTH TESTING OF BREEDING PAIRS AND THE AKC "DOES NOT" REQUIRE DNA ALONG WITH MICROCHIP TO INSURE THE ACCURACY OF IT'S REGISTRY!!!! REMEMBER AS AN EXAMPLE, COLOR IS NOT AN INDICATOR OF THE HEALTH OF A DOG OR QUAILITY. SOME GOOD ADVICE IS TO LOOK PAST THE COLOR. STRUCTURE AND TEMPERAMENT ARE MORE IMPORTANT. SO NOW THAT IT IS PUPPY SEASON; BUYER BUYER. IT'S NICE BEING ABLE TO GIVE TIPS WHEN YOU ARE NOT SELLING PUPPIES FOR A LIVING :). THE U.S. MARKET HAS BECOME OVER RUN WITH NEW PEOPLE BREEDING THE FIRST TWO TIBETANs THEY HAVE. THESE ARE JUST A FEW WORDS OF ADVICE. TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT; NO MOTIVATION HERE.

 

IS THE AKC A REGISTRY OF ACCURACY?

DID YOU KNOW THAT IF YOU HAVE GOOD REASON TO BELIEVE A PEDIGREE IS INACCURATE YOU HAVE TO PAY THE AKC $500.00 AND BEG THEM TO INVESTIGATE? and from what I understand you need the permission of the person with the false pedigree? Really? Isn't that like asking a robber to give your money back?

YOU WOULD THINK THEY WOULD WANT TO INVESTIGATE QUESTIONS OF PEDIGREE INACCURACIES? THEY STATE THIS IS THEIR MISSION STATEMENTIS TO BE A REGISTRY OF INTEGRITY? SOME HIGH VOLUME DISHONEST AKC BREEDERS HAVE THREATENED PEOPLE EXPOSING POSSIBLE PEDIGREE INACCURACIES.

IN THE MEANTIME, CHECK THIS OUT! CUT AND PASTE THIS LINK: http://asgw2016.com/akc-charter-and-by-laws/

IF YOU OWN OR HAVE OWNED A TIBETAN MASTIFF WITH HEALTH ISSUES OR TEMPERAMENT ISSUES; I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU. CONTACT ME. MANY HIGH VOLUME/ CORPORATE SHOW BREEDERS ARE NOT ALWAYS HONEST WHEN IT COMES TO HEALTH OR TEMPERAMENT ISSUES, MAKING IT HARD TO KNOW WHETHER YOU ARE BREEDING HEALTHY STABLE DOGS. I BELIEVE THEY DO THIS BECAUSE AKC SHOWS ENCOURAGE COMPETITION WHICH LEADS TO BREEDING GOOD LOOKING DOGS WHICH ARE NOT NECESSARILY HEALTHY. WHY WOULD THEY DO THIS? I BELIEVE THE ANSWER IS THAT THEY HAVE INVESTED SO MUCH MONEY INTO THE DOG. CLICK HERE

THEY REALLY DO STICK TOGETHER AND WILL LIE ABOUT PEOPLE WHO TRY TO EXPLAIN THEIR SIDE AND THEIR EXPERIENCES WITH AKC. I MAY NOT UNDERSTAND ALL THE REGISTRATION AND SHOW LINGO AND SYSTEM, BUT I DO HAVE A GOOD GRASP OF RIGHT AND WRONG AND BASED ON MY EXPERIENCES WITH THE AKC BREEDERS, I AM AFRAID OF IT. THEY WILL NOT EVEN LISTEN TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STORY. THEY JUST WRITE YOU OFF BECAUSE YOU ACTUALLY CARE ABOUT THE DOGS AND NOT THE MONEY.

YET THESE SELF PROCLAIMED ETHICAL, HONEST AKC SHOW BREEDERS WILL SEND DOG BROKERS TO BUY GOOD DOGS FROM NON AKC BREEDERS WHO WON'T SELL TO THEM BECAUSE THEY MAKE UP LIES ABOUT THEM. SOME OF THESE LIES INCLUDE THINGS LIKE THEY SHOOT THEIR DOGS, PEE ON THEM, BEAT THEM, ARE IN JAIL, POISON OTHER PEOPLE'S DOGS, STALK PEOPLE, OR EVEN THAT THEY LOST THEIR RIGHT TO BREED. THIS HAS BEEN HAPPENING TO A FRIEND OF MINE. THE AKC BREEDERS GET THEIR DOGS BECAUSE THEY MUST THINK THEY ARE BETTER THAN THEIRS OR THEY ARE JUST DOG "SCAVENGERS" TRYING TO GET A DOG FOR CHEAP SO THEY CAN "JACK THE PRICES". THEN AFTER THEY TELL THESE HORRIBLE LIES, THEY THREATEN THEM. IT'S ALL ABOUT MONEY,. I NEVER KNEW ABOUT DOG BROKERING WHICH IS BIG BUSINESS IN A SHOW WORLD. I AM OF THE OPINION THAT ANIMALS AND UNSUSPECTING PEOPLE ARE THE VICTIMS OF THESE OPERATIONS. AKC DOES NOT SEEM TO LISTEN TO SMALL BREEDERS OR NON SHOW BREEDERS AND I THINK IT ALL ABOUT MONEY. I COULD BE WRONG BUT THEN AGAIN, I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE. THERE ARE A LOT OF ARTICLES ON THE WEB THAT SUPPORT THOSE THOUGHTS. SEE THIS ARTICLE FOR OTHER COMMENTS ABOUT THE AKC.

This person got the answer I have been trying to say for a long time. An AKC registration certificate says nothing about quality or health, (link here) rather it's all about the money! FOLLOW THE AKC money trail. Somebody has to pay for all those "worthless champion" ribbons. It costs money to show, to campaign, to hire professional and politically connected handlers. Who pays for that?

WHO PAYS FOR ALL THESE FEES. SOMEBODY COMMENTED THAT IT CAN COST $900.00 PER MONTH TO "CAMPAIGN" A DOG. IF THIS IS TRUE; WE ARE TALKING BIG BUCKS. LIKE MONEY ON HORSES. IT IS THE UNSUSPECTING CONSUMER THAT PAY THE PRICE. NOT NECESSARILY FOR A BETTER DOG. GOOGLE THE HUMANE SOCIETY, PUPPY MILLS AND THE AKC AND YOU CAN FIND MANY ARTICLES.

QUOTE FROM ANOTHER EMAIL:
"QUOTE: "xxxx, I thought maybe you do not understand xxx B's DNA issue. He bought xxxxxx, everything was fine until a man breed xxxxxxx brother and xxxxxx had a few sick puppy's.  This man breed his Gold xxxxxx (xxxxxxx Brother according to xxxx B) to produce xxxxx xxxxxxxx a gold male owned by xxx xxxxxr and xxxxxxxx s.(K xxxxxx used him for stud this year) All that is fine except someone noticed that xxxxxx a Gold, has a Black and Tan Mommy, and a Black and Tan Daddy, so they are unable to produce a Gold offspring. .Many people including xxxxxxx R took note of that. No one has ever known of that to happen in any county EVER. So either xxxxx or the science of men is wrong. xxxxxx may argue with schooled individuals about that, but a reasonable person may ask the following? If you had 4 litters born in as many weeks could a hired caretaker give the wrong puppy to someone? Or maybe that caretaker could have given the right puppy, but wrong papers? Since all 4 litter were in the same pen could a mistake have taken place? I know of a litter where the Vet chipped the puppy's but somehow the chip # got mixed up? So one could ask ????? about all puppy's that were born in year xxxx. xxxxxx, xxxx B's xxxxxxx and xxxxxx, xxxxxx and xxxxxxx were all born in xxxxx. Could xxxxxr and xxxxxx be brother and sister if xxxxxx has black and tan parents? xxxxxx and xxxxxx ARE half siblings to start with but could one mistake a black and tan puppy's if they mistook a Gold for a Black and Tan?  xxxx B could for very little money prove if xxxxxxx and xxxxxxx are full brothers. He could prove if xxxx did or did not made a mistake. I have asked xxxxx to be like me, and listen to xxxxxxx. and ask what would this prove? All dogs born in xxxxx are still born in xxxxxxx. This could not change the fact that all 4 litters were xxxxxxx TIBETAN MASTIFFS NOT AKITA'S. xxxxxx is still a OFA Excellent and xxxxx IS his OFA Good son. xxxxx and xxxxxx DID produced two puppy's I own and xxxxxxr fathered xxxxx and xxxxxx who are OFA Good. Just as sick baby's are born sick litters are born, proving that xxxxx and xxxxxx may have produced a bad litter even if they are not full siblings, only proves the above. One thing is for sure, no one knows how many times TM breeders have made mistakes in paperwork or parentage,that went unnoticed because they owed no Golds. I would like to think that mine, yours, xxxxxx and xxxxxxx are right and it will cost someone something to prove differently. I do not want to prove that xxxxxxxx could not have 2 B&T parents anymore than I want to prove that xxxxxx and xxxxxxxx are litter mates. I do not want to make matters worse by 'defriending' or defending anyone. xxxxxxx is upset because this reflects bad on xxxxxx. xxxxxx " UNQUOTE

SO DON'T BELIEVE ALL AKC BREEDERS THAT "SAY" THEY ARE ETHICAL, HAVE HEALTH SITE, MAGAZINE SITES ABOUT THE TIBETAN MASTIFFS. I HAVE ACTUALLY FOUND THEM TO BE THE W0RST. THE ONES THAT HIRE "PROFESSIONAL" HANDLERS TO SHOW THEIR DOGS, AND "CAMPAIGN" THEM AROUND THE COUNTRY. REMEMBER THEY ARE THE ONES BREEDING FOR BIG BUCKS AND THE SHOW RING. THEY ARE THE ONES WITH THE MOST TO LOSE. THE LITTLE HOBBY BREEDERS ARE THE ONES IN MY OPINION WHO ARE BREEDING FOR THE LOVE OF THE BREED AND THEIR DOGS. HERE IS ANOTHER QUOTE FROM THE SAME BREEDER ABOVE EXPLAINING WHY THEY CHARGE SO MUCH FOR THEIR DOGS. IT'S REALLY NOT ABOUT HEALTH OR THE DOGS. AS YOU CAN SEE IT IS ALL ABOUT PAYING THE POLITICALLY CONNECTED HANDLERS FOR A WIN THAT REALLY HAS NO BEARING WHETHER THE DOG IS A GOOD ONE OR BAD. REMEMBER THE AKC DOES NOT REQUIRE HEALTH TESTING, DNA, OR MICROCHIP. BASICALLY THE AKC ONLY REQUIRES MONEY AND THEY SPIT OUT A PEDIGREE, ACURATE OR IN MY OPINION BASED ON MY INTERACTIONS WITH THE AKC:

THIS IS QUOTE FROM A HIGH VOLUME AKC SHOW BREEDER WHO EXPLAINS WHY THEY CHARGE SO MUCH. THEY HAVE TO MAKE UP FOR THE COSTS INVOLVED IN PAYING A POLICTICALLY CONNECTED HANDLER TO WIN IN THE RING. ARE THEY HEALTHIER? ARE THEY GOOD EXAMPLES OF THE BREED? BASED ON ALL THE ARITICLES I HAVE READ ABOUT THE SHOW RING; I DO NOT BELIEVE SO:

IN AN AKC SHOW BREEDER'S OWN WORDS

QUOTE "I don't know xxxx, people always want a sale, a good deal, at the bargain price! Some people I know have spent $50,000.00 per year (for 2 or 3 years) on showing their dog. That stud dog is not available to anyone but the best bitches. He may sire only 3-5 litters in his lifetime. You do the math 5 litters by 8 puppies = 40 puppies breeder keeps 2 out of each litter, so 30 puppies into $150,000.00 = $5000.00 per puppy. So the top AKC breeders give their puppies away at the bargain price of $5000.00! Yet the $500.00 puppy buyers swarm you with calls yet never put their money where there mouth is! Yes puppy mills abound because the very people complaining buy from them! " UNQUOTE

The unsuspecting consumer who doesn't know anybody as I have made the mistakes already. This website is dedicated to help you the consumer, realize that paying more for an AKC registered dog is not what it is cracked up to be and judging by the comments of this article; you may not be getting what the pedigree says. I invite you to read on. As the email states, you can't sell UKC dogs but I know that many of these AKC people have figured out ways to get DOGS FROM non show, non AKC breeders dogs under what I view as very deceptive business practices. One has to ask why would an AKC breeder want a UKC dog in the first place? I believe it is because non AKC breeders are not spending the money in the show ring, therefore, their main interest is the health and welfare of their dogs. They are not pressured to breed a dog that they have spend thousands upon thousands of dollars to show and campaign. (link here). It makes perfect sense to me. They actually care about the accuracy of their pedigrees because if you are not concerned with that; you could accidentally be breeding unhealthy dogs or worse yet, inbred dogs. As you can see by the two other quotes from AKC breeders; many do not seem to be concerned with this. It seems they are more concerned about getting the money they have put into the dogs whether it means putting a different pedigree on a pretty dog because it can win in the show ring. Yes, after nine years I have learned a lot. If you do not go along with their crowd they will stick together and slander you all the while they send their undercover people to buy dogs for them from reputable non show, non AKC breeders who will not sell to them. This is called "dog brokering". I have seen this happen to the breeder of my dogs. They have slandered, and lied to them, yet, gotten his dogs in deceptive ways because they will not sell to them. If they cannot get the dogs registered, no problem, just put a different sire on the pedigree and nobody will know!

THE MESSAGE TO RIGHT IS FROM A AKC SHOW BREEDER. THIS LLUSTRATES THE HYPOCRISY AND HIDDEN SECRETS BEHIND DOG SHOW COMPPETITION IN MY MIND. IF I HAVE UNDERSTOOD IT CORRECTLY, THE UNDERLYING MESSAGE IS THAT THEY "DO NOT WANT TO KNOW THE TRUTH" ABOUT THE PEDIGREE BECAUSE IT WOULD REFLECT BADLY ON THEiR PRETTY AKC SHOW DOG. NEVER MIND THAT THERE MAY BE HEALTH ISSUES IN A PEDIGREE THAT IS NOT REPORTED PROPERLY OR THAT I BREEDER WOULD NOT KNOW IF THEY ARE BREEDING TOO CLOSELY RELATED DOGS. THIS IS MY INTERPRETATION OF THIS MESSAGE AND JUST THAT. WOULD YOU SAY THIS SHOW BREEDER IS ETHICAL? HONEST? YOU MUST DECIDE WHAT YOU THINK. THESE ARE THE SAME SHOW AKC SHOW PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN SPREADING LIBELOUS LIES ABOUT THE BREEDER OF THE DOGS THEY ARE USING FOR OVER 20 YEARS. THEY DO NOT SEE THEIR HYPOCRISY BASED ON WHAT I HAVE SEEN. WHEN DOGS BECOME THINGS | POSSESSIONS AS THESE PEOPLE SEEM TO VIEW THEM AS FOR MONEY AND RIBBONS IN THE RING; THEY LOSE COMMON DECENCY TOWARDS HUMANS AND ANIMALS IS THE BEST EXPLANATION I CAN COME UP WITH. THEY WILL NOT EVEN ENTERTAIN THE OTHER SIDE OF A STORY BECAUSE WHEN YOU TRY TO SHOW THEM THE FACTS THEY ATTACK YOU AND PLUG THEIR EARS.

Apparrently they are the only ones who can spread unsubstantiated lies against those who try to debate them with their own words.

AKC REGISTERS UN-REGISTERED DOGS? SEE ARTICLE CLICK HERE
IF I UNDERSTAND THIS ARTICLE CORRECTLY IT MEANS THAT YOU REGISTRATION DOLLARS DO GIVE YOU ANY KIND OF PROTECTION? EMAIL ME IF AND TELL ME WHAT YOUR INTERPRETATION IS because WHAT THEY DO NEVER MAKES SENSE TO ME.

Why not require DNA profiles for each and every registration? hmmm Kesang Camp will be launching a website complete with evidence to support what the AKC did to them. In the meantime; please contact them directly and ask them about their experiences with AKC.

MANY AKC SHOW BREEDERS WILL "CHAMPION" THEIR DOGS AS SOON AS THEY CAN. THIS INVOLVES LOTS OF MONEY, POLITICSAND WELL KNOWN AKC HANDLERS. WE ALL KNOW THAT TIBETAN MASTIFF MASTIFF PUPPIES ARE CUTE AND IRRESITIBLE AS PUPPIES SO HERE LIES THE PROBLEM. TIBETAN MASTIFFS ARE A SLOW MATURING BREED. MANY HEALTH ISSUES WON'T SURFACE UNTIL THEY ARE TWO OR THREE YEARS OLD. "SOME" BREEDERS KNOW THAT SPENDING THE MONEY TO "CHAMPION" THEIR DOGS YOUNG WILL PAY OFF FETCHING A HIGHER PRICE FOR A "CHAMPIONED" DOG'S PUPPIES. THERE ARE MANY ARTICLES THAT TALK ABOUT HOW A "CHAMPION" IS NOT A SIGN OF QUALITY. IF A BREEDER TRIES TO SELL YOU ON THE FACT THE PARENTS ARE "CHAMPIONS"; DON'T BE TOO IMPRESSED. IMAGINE I WAS A BIG TIME SHOW BREEDER AND WENT AROUND SPENDING TONS OF MONEY TO "CHAMPION" AND "CAMPAIGN" MY CUTE LITTLE TIBETAN MASTIFF PUPPY. THIS IS QUITE POSSIBLE WITH THE RIGHT HANDLER AND LOTS OF MONEY. YOU YOU MIGHT BE IMPRESSED. RIGHT? WELL YOU SHOULDN'T BE. FAST FORWARD THREE YEARS. SUPPOSE THIS PUPPY IS NOW GROWN AND ALTHOUGH A VERY "PRETTY" DOG"; IT HAS MANY HEALTH ISSUES THAT COULD NOT HAVE BEEN PREDICTED AT SIX MONTHS OF AGE. SUPPOSE IT HAS DYSPLASTIC ELBOWS AND A BAD THYROID THAT DID NOT SHOW UP UNTIL THREE YEARS OF AGE. BAD TYROIDS CAN LEAD TO OTHER ILLNESSES SUCH AS BAD HEARTS IF NOT CAUGHT IN TIME. ADDISONS DISEASE IS ANOTHER DISEASE THERE IS NO TEST FOR UNTIL IT BECOMES ACTIVE. IT IS SAID TO SHOW UP IN MIDDLE AGED FEMALES BUT UNDETECTABLE UNTIL THEN. SO NOW WHAT IS A BREEDER TO DO? THEY PROBABLY SPENT POSSIBLY THOUSANDS IN THE SHOW RING. "SOME" BREEDERS MAY BREED THEM ANYWAY OR WORSE YET; BRED THEM BEFORE THEY WERE TWO OR THREE BEFORE THESE THINGS COULD HAVE BEEN PREDICTED. IT IS QUITE POSSIBLE MANY BREEDERS DO NOT DISCLOSE ISSUES BECAUSE OF THE MONEY INVOLVED AND THEIR REPUTATIONS. SO BUYERS BEWARE OF THE AKC FALSE SENSE OF QUALITY. JUST GOOGLE AKC AND REGISTRATION FRAUD. THERE ARE TONS OF ARTICLES ON THE WEB YOU MIGHT WANT TO INVESTIGATE.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO CAMPAIGN A DOG?

DON'T BE FOOLED BY A TITLE. QUOTE FROM ARTICLE ABOVE
QUOTE: "Worse yet, the good dogs with good pedigrees that can contribute to the whelping box are lost to the breed because the dog owner says 'the hell with it, I don't need this' and they quit showing altogether.  That's a problem for the breed and the sport because as I’ve said before ' you can't buy what you can't see'. In this case, most people won't breed to a dog unless it has at least a CH title and to sell to good show homes, it just about has to be a “ranked” dog to sell the puppies." UNQUOTE

I RECOMMEND GOING TO BREEDERS WHO MICRO CHIP AND DNA THEIR DOGS AND ARE ON GOOD TERMS WITH THE BREEDER OF THEIR BREEDING STOCK! I.E. Don't fall for the misconception that an AKC Champioin means "quality". Championships can be bought. cut and paste the following link:

AKC REGISTRATION A WORTHLESS PIECE OF PAPER? READ THIS ARTICLE; I HAVE ACTUALLY SEEN SOME OF THESE THINGS BEING DONE. QUOTE FROM ARTICLE QUOTE: "

The AKC registers dogs with no health or safety checks at all.

Hopefully you will never again make the mistake of believing that the existence of AKC papers or a pedigree has anything whatsoever to do with a puppy's quality. AKC registered puppies with pedigrees is just not a big selling point, no matter how loudly a breeder trumpets it in his classified ad.


"But papers at least guarantee that a dog is purebred, right?"

Boy, I'm really beginning to feel like the bearer of bad news here!

No. Being purebred has nothing to do with registration papers. Pure bred means that a puppy inherits the limited combination of genes that have been "fixed" in the breed's gene pool. This limited set of genes is what makes the puppy grow up to be a certain size, have a certain type of coat, color, etc. Since those genes are the only genes his parents have to give, they're the only genes the puppy can inherit.

Thus, a "pure bred" dog must inherit genes for smallish size, brown/black/white color, floppy ears, a short coat that sheds, etc. Those genes are fixed in the breed's gene pool – there are no other choices.

That's what makes a dog purebred – inheriting genes from the fixed gene pool of his breed. The presence or absence of registration papers has no effect on those genes.

In fact, a dog can have registration papers, yet still not be purebred.

What???

It's true. A dog can have registration papers, yet not be purebred, because his registration papers can be falsified. Most registries, such as the AKC, operate primarily on the honor system. They simply take the breeder's word for it that "King" and "Queen" were really the parents of Solomon.

But scams happen all the time.

  1. Let's say Dishonest Dave has two purebred Boxers with registration papers.
  2. The female is accidentally bred by a stray dog of unknown ancestry.
  3. Dishonest Dave is unwilling to give up the $600 he could get for "AKC registered Boxer puppies" so when the litter arrives, he simply fills out the litter registration paperwork – claiming that his BOXER was actually the father.
  4. The AKC will dutifully mail him a packet of Boxer registration papers for each puppy, which he will happily pass along to the buyer of each puppy....collecting his $600 as he does so.
  5. And no one will be the wiser until the puppies grow up and start to look suspiciously non-Boxerish.

Fortunately, the AKC has a new DNA testing program now, where participating breeders submit DNA samples of parents and puppies, which conclusively proves parentage. If you want to be sure of who your puppy's parents really are, look for breeders who participate in this program."

BREEDING PLANS 2016-2017

THIS SITE IS AN ON GOING AND IT CHANGES AS I LEARN MORE ABOUT THE BREED AND AKC POLICIES. I HAVE LEARNED A LOT BY BEING THROWN INTO MANY SITUATIONS OVER THE PAST EIGHT YEARS. THE BIGGEST MISPERCEPTION IS THAT AKC IS A REGISTRY OF INTEGRITY. BASED ON ALL THE ARTICLES AVAILABLE ON THE INTERNET AND MY DIRECT EXPERIENCES WITH AKC SHOW BREEDERS; I BELIEVE AKC IS NOT A REGISTRY OF INTEGRITY NOR AN ADVOCATE FOR THE WELL BEING OF DOGS. SOME THINGS I WOULD HAVE DONE DIFFERENTLY, AND THAT IS WHY I HAVE CREATED THIS SITE. I ENCOURAGE ANYBODY TO WAIT TO BREED. IT TAKES TIME TO LEARN ABOUT THE WORLD OF AKC AND DOG BREEDERS. I DON'T BELIEVE ALL THE AKC BREEDERS ARE BAD; BUT I DO BELIEVE THE AKC ORGANIZATION IS THE CAUSE OF MANY OF THE PROBLEMS I HAVE EXPERIENCED. MAYBE SOMEBODY ELSE WON'T HAVE TO GO THROUGH SOME OF THESE THINGS. THANK YOU FOR VISITING. IT'S NOT ABOUT PUPPY SALES. YOU SHOULD BUY WHAT YOU LIKE, JUST KNOW WHAT YOU ARE GETTING INTO.

DOES AN AKC INSPECTION CERTIFICATE MEAN ANYTHING?

FOLLOW THE AKC MONEY TRAIL

GREAT ARTICLE ABOUT WHAT I HAVE SEEN REGARDING DOG SHOWS AND HOW "WORTHLESS" A "CHAMPIONSHIP" REALLY IS. FOLLOW THE MONEY, AGAIN.

quote: " For this, a great many people rely on the American Kennel Club (AKC) for breeder recommendations, operating under the assumption that when the AKC endorses a breeder it means that breeder is taking excellent care of their dogs, following a high health standard, and indeed breeding healthy animals. Evidence is mounting that this is not the case at all, that in fact certification by the AKC means very little, except that the breeder in question has paid a a fee to the AKC. When Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States was asked whether seeing “AKC approved” on a breeders website or facility meant you were getting a healthy, humanely raised dog he said this “Absolutely not. It really is just a piece of paper without any value for dog welfare.”Lillian Devera found this out first hand when she bought a puppy from what she thought was a reputable breeder, with an “AKC-inspected” kennel. Instead she got “A very sick puppy.” The dog had intestinal parasites, an upper respiratory infection and a congenital eye defect, though records showed that the facility had been inspected only weeks before. Law enforcement went in 2 months later and rescued over 20 dogs.This is not an isolated incident. It turns out that the AKC has only 9 inspectors on staff, for the entire United States. When asked, they refused to comment on what percentage of breeders actually get inspected, though they did say they had conducted 55,000 inspections since 2000. The AKC is also known to have opposed laws that would regulate breeders based on the number of dogs they have, and require new standards or inspections. " unquote

If you want a great Tibetan Mastiff; go to a small hobby breeder who does not care about showing. This is not to say that all show people are bad; some small breeders like to show and I say good for them; but these horrible busy body AKC "ELITE" breeders seem so obsessed with what everybody else is doing that I believe you are only asking for trouble by even asking their advice. Remember; follow the money. The "Elitists" I am talking about have no jobs so remember "FOLLOW THE MONEY". It's all about recognition for them and money. This is never a good reason to breed dogs. They have all the time in the world to "bash" others and pick pepper off poop so just imagine what they might do to you if they "turn on you". No, I highly recommend staying away from "Elitist" who feel they are better than you and set up social media "HATE SITES" to attack others instead of worrying about their own dogs. These are very scary individuals. I GOT MY FIRST TM FROM A VERY NICE LOW KEY SMALL BREEDER AND I WISH ALL MY EXPERIENCES WERE LIKE THAT. Very down to earth. Not the "ELITE" know it all type at all. Just a guy that loved his dogs and the breed. These "ELITE" breeders are ruining the breed by attacking and making enemies of everybody around the world that love the breed. THEY REALLY NEED TO GET REAL JOBS AND STOP RUINING THE TIBETAN MASTIFF BREED BECAUSE THEY HAVE TOO MUCH TIME ON THEIR HANDS AND DEPEND ON THE BREED TO MAKE THEIR LIVING AND FEEL IMPORTANT!

SOME PEOPLE I HAVE MET ACTUALLY GO ON DISABILITY AND THEN TRY TO LIVE OFF BREEDING THESE DOGS. UNFORTUNATELY FOR THE DOGS THIS DOES NOT ALWAYS WIND UP GOOD FOR THEM.

TIBETAN MASTIFFS AS SERVICE DOGS?

Some breeders advertise Tibetan Mastiffs as service dogs; I would be very skeptical. Talk to breeders who have been in the breed for many, many years. Here is a link that you might find helpful. MEETING AND EXCEEDING THE ADI REQUIREMENTS. PAY PARTICULAR ATTENTION TO NUMBER 9. QUOTE: " The client must abide by the ADI Minimum Standards of Assistance Dog Partners. Prior to placement every service dog must meet the ADI Standards and Ethics Regarding Dogs, be spayed/neutered and have current vaccination certificates as determined by their veterinarian and applicable laws. It is the program’s responsibility to inform the client of any special health or maintenance care requirements for each dog." UNQUOTE WITH SO MANY PEOPLE ABUSING THE SERVICE DOG CERTIFICATION STATUS, BE SURE TO SPEAK "DIRECTLY" TO THE PERSON WHO CERTIFIED TIBETAN MASTIFFS AS SERVICE DOGS. ASK TO SEE THE TRAINERS CREDENTIALS. Tibetan Mastiffs are typically very guard, protective, and aloof. These are probably not the best qualities for a service dog and I would question very carefully those making such claims. I am not an expert by any means, but it would be prudent for anybody to find a breeder who has been in the breed for 20+ years who could answer this question for you. There are a lot of new comers trying to make a name and money for themselves. You never know what claims are true and which are not. Saying a parent is a service dog really means nothing to me as each puppy has a personality of it's own. If by chance, there is a Tibetan Mastiff who is a service dog; it by no means is a guarantee that each and every one of it's offspring will have the same qualities suitable for service dog work. Just my opinions. I have the facts regarding some claims. Unlike these "self proclaimed" ELISTIST BREEDERS, I actually do my research and get the facts. Email me for more info

I AM NOT TRYING TO MAKE PUPPY SALES WITH THE INFORMATION ON THIS SITE. I AM NOT A BIG TIME BREEDER; NOR A THREAT TO ANY OTHER BREEDER. I AM NOT BREEDING FOR MONEY, OR THE SHOW RING. I AM NOT ABOUT "CONVINCING" YOU TO BUY A PUPPY FROM ME. I JUST HOPE TO SAVE SOMEBODY ALL THE GRIEF AND HEARTACHE I EXPERIENCED WITH AKC SHOW BREEDERS AND TO BE CAREFUL OF THOSE NOW MIGRATING TO UKC TO BOOST THEIR PUPPY SALES. BUY WHAT YOU LIKE BUT BE CAREFUL. EVERYBODY WILL BE VERY NICE TO YOU. DO YOUR RESEARCH. I HAD NEVER OWNED A"PAPERED" DOG BEFORE. I GUESS I SHOULD CONSIDER MYSELF LUCKY :). LOTS OF CHOICES. DON'T LET THE "FEAR MONGERS" WORRY YOU. GET WHAT YOU LIKE AND JUST BE HAPPY. JUST REMEMBER THE TIBETAN MASTIFF IS NOT FOR EVERYBODY. THEY ARE A 'GUARD" DOG . THEY TAKE THE JOB OF GUARDING "THEIR" FAMILIES SERIOUSLY AND AS SUCH, NEED TO BE INTRODUCED TO ALL THOSE ENTERING YOUR HOME.

A few breeders self righteous breeders act all offended at those who do not support AKC for good reason. Like politics, they attack anybody who does not agree with them, even if those whom they attack do all the health testing they say should be done. These are the same people who attack others and call their dogs unhealthy yet figure out deceptive ways to get the dogs they say they do not like because they haven't been tested, etc. Several of these people are now forming a UKC TM club. A group of these people have gone to other breeder's homes and lied to them in order to buy dogs from them. Based on the emails I have seen; these are not people I would sell a dog to. If you have to lie to somebody to get something: what good are you?

BREEDING PLANS 2016-2017

AKC REGISTERS UN-REGISTERED DOGS!

PETITION AKC TO REQUIRE DNA PROFILES TO BE PUT ON FILE BEFORE BREEDINGS OCCUR OR DENY REGS - SIGN HERE

 

Dog poisoned at Colorado Dog Show and Dog Poisoned at famed Dog Show. Is this what AKC show scams result in? What kind of person would poison a dog in order to win? Exactly why I want no part of AKC or people like this.

BE WARY OF BREEDERS BREEDING ONE YEAR OLD UNTESTED DOGS!

IT IS HIGHLY UNETHICAL and could be a sign of a puppy mill!
What is the purpose of breeding several breeds and multiple litters? WHY HAVE 25+ DOGS? HOW CAN ONE PROPERLY CARE FOR AND SOCIALIZE 25+ DOGS.

AND CERTAINLY DO NOT PAY $2500.00 - $6000.00 FOR A PUPPY BEFORE YOU RESEARCH THE PEDIGREES! SOME PEOPLE WILL POST A LOWER PRICE AND THEN ASK FOR MORE. BE VERY CAREFUL.

AKC REGISTERS UN-REGISTERED DOGS!

The Tibetan Mastiff is no longer a rare breed.

Quote: "So why would I even have any concern about the introduction of crossbred Chinese dogs into the Tibetan Mastiff gene pool? Simple answer: Deception. I really despise deception. And inaccuracy. I despise that, too. Breeders who crossbreed authentic Tibetan dogs with standardized breeds such as Neapolitan Mastiff, Spanish Mastiff, Chow, Newfoundland, Shar Pei – and then sell the descendants as “Tibetan Mastiffs – are deceiving their buyers. They are lying. And the other thing they are doing is corrupting the pedigree histories of all future descendants of these dogs. Everyone knows that plenty of that has gone on *within* the TM gene pool: Breeders putting the wrong names onto the registrations of pups they produce, either inadvertently because they have multiple litters on the ground at the same time and do not practice good kennel management. Or intentionally because pups registered as by “Champion XXX” (who is sterile) are likely to sell better than pups by his brother who is the actual sire. " and " I'm afraid that most registries are too greedy to look carefully at the validity of the pedigrees being submitted to them. Each one they reject = a financial loss to them...." Unquote.

WHAT IS A SNOW LION TIBETAN MASTIFF? BASICALLY IT IS A COLOR AND NOTHING MORE. KESANG CAMPS STRAY GENIE IS PICTURED BELOW. SHE IS NOT A SNOW LION.

AKC SHOW WORLD A SCAM? I THINK SO. FOLLOW THE MONEY! I THINK THE AKC is a JOKE. I QUESTION MANY OF THE PEDIGREES AND I BET MOST OF THEM ARE NOT ACCURATE AT ALL. I WONDER WHAT DNA TESTING WOULD REVEAL. PERHAPS THAT IS WHY THEY DO NOT REQUIRE DNA ON ALL PARENTS OF LITTERS. IT WOULD TAKE A BIG CHUNK OF MONEY OUT OF THEIR POCKETS.

FULL BROTHER AND SISTER BREEDINGS? NO PROBLEM. YOU GOT THE MONEY AND YOU CAN BREED IT; AKC WILL REGISTER IT! PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING OF RESPONSE FROM AKC ABOUT REGISTERING A FULL BROTHER SISTER BREEDING:

QUOTE: Inbreeding - The mating of two closely related dogs of the same breed.

Line breeding - The practice of mating a dog to a member of an earlier generation of the dog's bloodline.

Out crossing: The mating of two dogs of the same breed that are otherwise virtually unrelated.

The relationship between the sire and dam of the litter has no bearing on registration eligibility. Anyone who considers breeding their dog must consider many different factors. Breeding dogs that are closely related can cause certain characteristics, both desirable and undesirable, to be present in the offspring. There is no rule that prohibits inbreeding and line breeding; this is left to the discretion of individual breeders.

"WHY DOG SHOW ENTRIES ARE DECLINING?"

FOLLOW THE MONEY > THE HANDLERS PAY A FEE TO THE AKC > THE HANDLERS GET CLIENTS WHO PAY SHOW ENTRIES > THE VENDORS COME THE SHOWS > PEOPLE STAY IN HOTELS AND EAT IN RESTAURANTS. HOW LONG DO YOU THINK PEOPLE WOULD PAY A HANDLER $100.00 + TO HANDLE THEIR DOGS IF THEY ARE NOT WINNING? I HAVE NOTICED THAT OVER IN EUROPE PEOPLE HANDLE THEIR OWN DOGS; MAKING IT A MUCH LEVEL VENUE IN MY OPINION.

AKC HANDLERS - EACH HANDLER PAYS A $250.00 TO BE REGISTERED ACCORDING TO THEIR WEBSITE: http://www.akc.org/handlers/links.cfm DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE YOU CAN WIN AGAINST THE MONEY? Here is an example of what AKC handlers may charge:

Best in Show………….……$450
Reserve Best In Show.........$270
Best In Show National…….$470
Best in Specialty…………..$250
Group I.……...………………$95
Group II……....………………$90
Group III………....……………$80
Group IV………...……………$75

FOLLOW THE MONEY TRAIL. IT IS PRETTY CLEAR TO ME. AGAIN, MY OPINION BASED ON MY OBSERVATIONS AND CONVERSATIONS WITH PEOPLE AT SHOWS
BUYING A DOG UNDER CO-OWNERSHIP IS THE WORST POSSIBLE THING YOU CAN DO BASED ON MY EXPERIENCE WITH THESE BREEDERS. MY CONTRACT WAS BREACHED FOR MERELY SPEAKING WITH SOMEONE THE BREEDER DID NOT LIKE. IF YOU COMPLAIN; TUFF LUCK. TAKE MY ADVICE AND RUN. UNDER ACCORDING TO MY CO-OWNERSHIP I WAS TO BREED TWO LITTERS, GIVE TWO PUPPIES TO THE CO-OWNER AND PAY FOR EVERYTHING, VET, SHOW AND HANDLER FEES. THAT WOULD HAVE TOTALED UP TO APPOX. $7000.00 AND I WOULD HAVE BEEN RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING THAT COULD GO WRONG? SOUND LIKE A GOOD DEAL TO YOU? IT DID NOT TO ME.

OWNER HANDLER DIVISION? IS IT WORTH THE MONEY? - CUT AND PASTE THE FOLLOWING LINK TO READ: http://www.apps.akc.org/classic/ohs/point_scale.cfm

For all of you wondering; do you get points toward an AKC "champion" status by entering in the owner handler division? Why would anybody throw money away like this? It is very insulting to me as to why AKC would assume their membership to be so dumb. This only validates my opinion that the AKC is only in it for the money. Why would anybody give them money to enter shows which have absolutely no value in terms of "championship" points.

Quote:

"AKC National Owner-Handled Series

AKC National Owner-Handled Series Point Scale

Note: AKC National Owner-Handled Series points do not contribute to championship points.
At an individual show a dog earns the cumulative number of AKC National Owner-Handled Series points associated with each placement.
"

 

KENNEL WINS? - "DEEP POCKETS" AND THE SHOW WORLD - THE SHOW WORLD ILLUSION.

When a breeder bring enough of their own dogs to a show where they know there is no competition to make their own major and get a championship for their dog. SCAM! DON'T BELIEVE THEIR MARKETING TOOLS! FOLLOW THE AKC MONEY TRAIL.

This is when a dog goes for months on end to shows all over the country. Doesn't matter if there is any competition because the purpose is for judges all over the country to "get an eye" on the dog and it's "well connected" handler. That way, when Eukanuba or Westminster comes up; the judges will recognize the handler and most likely that dog will win. It's all about following the money!

ARE YOU GETTING A BETTER DOG? BASED ON MY EXPERIENCES THE ANSWER IT NO!

Quote from article referenced above:

Quote: "We asked Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States: "If I'm looking to buy a dog and I see it has been AC-inspected, AKC-registered, does that mean I'm getting a good dog?"

"Absolutely not. It really is just a piece of paper without any value for dog welfare," Pacelle told us." UNQUOTE

BEWARE OF AKC BREEDERS/JUDGES - CORPORATE PUPPY MILLS?

PEDIGREE FRAUD – AKC STUD BOOK? and the list goes on and on.

I LIKE OTHERS BELIEVE THAT AKC "CHAMPIONSHIPS" MEAN NOTHING. WITH THE RIGHT HANDLER AND ENOUGH MONEY ANY DOG CAN WIN. BE SUSPICIOUS OF THOSE WHO DO NOT SHOW THEIR OWN DOGS. THEY PROBABLY WOULD NOT WIN WITHOUT A POLITICALLY CONNECTED HANDLER. I WAS TOLD BY A HANDLER THAT AKC CAME UP WITH A GRAND CHAMPIONSHIP CATEGORY BASICALLY TO KEEP THE MONEY FLOWING AND IF YOU ARE SHOWING YOUR OWN CHAMPION AGAINST A "HANDLER'S DOG" YOU MOST LIKELY WILL NOT WIN. IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY AND NOT THE DOG BASED ON WHAT I HAVE BEEN TOLD AND EXPERIENCED. Be wary of those show breeders who "market" their dogs". Use your eyes! They will go on about a dog's parents and pedigree; but just because a dog had a certain parent does not mean it will be anything like the dog. It all boils down to what you want, not what they try to "sell you". Don't let anybody try to tell you

Breeders who are judges? Could politics play a huge part in the AKC? CHAMPIONSHIPSHIPS AND POLITICS. Based on my experiences I believe it is all about the money and those who make it happen. I have seen images that have been photo shopped of Tibetan Mastiffs where the original photo looks nothing like the "enhanced" one. Some show people will do anything to sell their dogs by means of deception. Don't fall for the deceptive "show crowd" who are only interested in "peddling their dogs" any way they can.

SOME THOUGHTS ABOUT DOG SHOWS

I WAS AT A DOG SHOW THE OTHER DAY AS A SPECTATOR AND I FIND IT VERY AMUSING HOW SOME BIG BREEDERS "PUMP THEMSELVES" UP. THEY WILL GET ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND REPORT "TO THE FOLLOWERS" HOW THEIR DOGS TOOK BEST OF SHOW, OR BEST OF WINNERS, ETC. WHEN IN REALITY THEY WERE THE ONLY DOG OR BITCH ENTERED IN THEIR CATEGORY. THEN THEY WILL BRING A COUPLE OF THEIR OWN DOGS AND GUESS WHAT? THEY WIN AGAINST THEIR OWN DOG. SILLY ISN'T IT? I THINK SO? DO NOT FALL FOR THE CHARADE OF THE AKC SO CALLED "CHAMPIONSHIP" FARCE. THEY ARE REALLY NOT THE BEST DOGS.

I am not an expert nor do I claim to be. I have had to learn from experience because it seems that many of the long time breeders do not want to "mentor" new people; they only want to take advantage of them. When you are on to their game and see the lies; they will trash you immediately to cover up for themselves. Like I said; I do not trust most of them here in the U.S. Only a few.

I think UKC is a much fairer venue. AKC show people will "poo poo" the idea. Perhaps it is because they have to actually show their own dogs. Wow, what a novel idea! My experience with the AKC has been horrible and most of the time I have been confronted by very snooty and condescending people.
