|oops, Risa, you forgot C-WAGS
I am a APDT and C-WAGS Rally judge and we teach AKC/UKC.
Of the four, I love C-WAGS the best because it is the most varied. There is a Zoom course (no stationary exercises) and an ARF course (Agility/Rally/Freestyle) that requires both left and right side heeling.
Personally, I am not huge on AKC obedience. I find the long stays dangerous and once you get past the CD, it's all about jumping and retrieving. I prefer (for myself) more complex series of exercises and a bit more interaction with my dogs.
Whatever you do, READ THE RULES. Even for the same sport, they vary from venue to venue and what is acceptable in AKC may get you NQ's in APDT or C-WAGS.
BTW, C-WAGS also offer Obedience and Scent Detective Games.
