What is APRI registration?

Can someone tell me what APRI registration is or what significance, if any, it is to have an APRI champion. I was just on that Jeff's website and it blows my mind. He keeps mentioning the above and says nothing about any testing or any AKC registration. His site just upsets me and I have a feeling he's trying to fool people into thinking they're getting something they're not.

It is American Pet Registry--so I assume there is no AKC registry. I have no idea who Jeff is, but this is not the registry you would want if you wanted a pure breed. A hybrid could be registered on this registration. I would not expect to see any health testing and would run the other way.

Exactly what I thought. It makes me so angry when "breeders" try to fool the public. Thanks.

I think APRI is one of those registries where you can just send a picture of your pet and tell them it's a Havanese or a Maltese and they will register your dog as such....scarry!!!

APRI is the most common registry that puppy millers use. Draw your own conclusions from that.

It's sad because someone who didn't know better might think sites like that are legitimate breeders. This particular guy seems to have increased his business tremendously over the past couple of years. I wish there were a way to let people know.

Check out this balony. A simple search of this alleged "club" and you will find that it so false. There is no "club." They are the club. Checkout the bottom and the disclaimers.

Geri, this place is right here in East Meadow. It burns me.

How could they be champions? APRI champions? Where would he show them? I don't get that....

Also---did you notice all the different ages of all the different puppies? Looks like he is getting a lot of money for his pups.

I know this guy was brought up once before on here,but geez......he has changed his website I think,as I never saw the champion photos before.

Jon,

I've seen that place. Aren't they right next to the Colony Diner? I think they have a big ad on the side of the building. I agree, these places make me so mad.
