UKC’s emphasis on the owner-handler-breeder and their dogs creates an inclusive, fun, and educational environment. Our comprehensive event opportunities highlight dogs’ instinct and heritage while encouraging the human-canine bond. Amiable competition lends integrity to all UKC titles and degrees, furthering the virtue of every UKC pedigree. Through our registry services, performance and hunting events, and experienced staff committed to accurate and helpful customer service, UKC strives to promote Real Dogs for Real People. 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, educational events, welcoming both purebred dogs and dogs of unknown ancestry.
