Why do you want the kennel club to be the police of your or someone else's ethics? If you can't be responsible enough to alter your dogs or put them in situations where they for sure won't be bred, that is a problem with you. Maybe you sholdn't be owning a dog if you can't be more responsible than that but it isn't the registry's responsbility to see to it that you aren't irresponsible. Inbreeding is a well known and if knowledgeably done, a very useful breeding strategy. Why would they not register a litter that was knowledgeably bred? People can totally outcross and come up with just as many or more issues than if they stupidly inbred so a registry can't regulate stupidity or you and a lot of people would have unregistered dogs. If you didn't want that litter registered, then you shouldn't have registered it.

As far as one registry being 'better' than another, that again shows your ignorance. ConKC and some of the other pseudo-registries are just con games to put papers on dogs regardless of heritage. Responsible registries keep record of ancestors and validate the purity of a line, that it is purebred. The con registries simply take money and give papers to anything and people are stupid enough to think it means something. Yes, registry with a legitimate registry means something - that the dog has a record of the purity behind it and a way to know the genetic characteristics behind it, but that is when utilized by someone that knows what they are doing and not just someone that puts two dogs together. Your trainer obviously doesn't know much since there is a whole lot more to a breeder than he lead you to believe. Maybe that is the type of breeder he and you are used to - too bad you have only known crappy breeders and not responsible, knowledgeable ones. Expand your horizons and actually learn about them and maybe you won't keep having 'accidents'.
