What Makes Us Different?
Our emphasis is on the owner-handler-breeder and their dogs, which creates an inclusive, fun, and educational environment. Our comprehensive event opportunities highlight dogs’ instincts and heritage while encouraging the human-canine bond. Amiable competition lends integrity to all events, furthering the virtue of every canine partner. You do not need to have a registered dog to enter our training program.
A Kalamazoo, Michigan-based company founded in 1898, United Kennel Club is the largest all-breed performance-dog registry in the world, registering dogs from all 50 states and 25 foreign countries. Celebrating the unique Total Dog philosophy, UKC events highlight the instincts and heritage of dogs that look and perform equally well, as more than 60 percent of its annually licensed events are tests of hunting ability, training, and instinct. United Kennel Club prides itself on its family-oriented, friendly, and educational events, welcoming both purebred dogs and dogs of unknown ancestry.
