Well the AKC was started to show the quality and straits of a PUREBRED dog!

But also Pits are NOT mutts....so it would be discrimiting a purebred dog?

It isn't so much AKC as it is INDIVIDUAL breed clubs.

I'm sure there are many kennelclubs out there that would be plenty wllling to let a mixed breed into their training classes happily in hopes of educating more people.

And, unfortunately, you will also find kennel clubs like this one.

Ack! What a horrible experience. I agree that you should write to them and let them know why you won't be joining.
I'd like to think that your experience was down to the individual people involved not a representation of the entire kennel club, but who knows. From the other posts here it seems like a common thing.
It's such a shame. I hope you find a better club or at least somewhere else you can do handling classes.

Cass.

That sucks! It's making me even more nervous about this training club I'm looking at getting into...
