:? We have had our AB for a month now and the breeders have notified us that Maximus' papers are in. They have registered him with the NKC and the ABA. Could anyone please help us with informing us a little about these registries??
NKC and ABA are probably the top 2 most popular AB registries there are currently. Most of the show folks use them as they tend to hold the largest number of shows. NKC is an all breed registry and is a bit more lax in how they register thier dogs, and ABA is a bit more strict and only register American Bulldogs and American Pitbull Terriers. ABA is located in CA and has the stronghold on AB shows on the west coast, while NKC is in the south and folks hold NKC shows all over the mid, southern and eastern half of the states. Not sure what other info you were looking for... the links listed to thier respective websites should help answer any other questions you may have.
