December 11, 2013. The United Kennel Club is excited to announce that, beginning January 1, 2014, we will be recognizing Barn Hunt titles earned through the Barn Hunt Association LLC.

The UKC Dog Events Department is always looking for new and exciting programs that support our vision of the Total Dog. Barn Hunt is an excellent test of a dog’s natural scenting ability and prey drive. During Barn Hunt trials dogs also have to be agile enough to maneuver through tunnels and climb over stacks of hay to find their prey.

Beginning January 1, 2014, Barn Hunt Association LLC title-holders can submit a copy of their Barn Hunt title certificate, the official UKC application, and the $20 recording fee, to have the title recorded on the dog’s United Kennel Club record. They will receive a title certificate recognizing their dogs’ accomplishments. Certificates will only be issued for Barn Hunt titles earned after January 1. Barn Hunt titles earned prior to January 1, 2014 will not be grandfathered in.
