The UKC Premier™ Dog Show, which began in 1994, is regarded by many as a benchmark event for dog enthusiasts seeking to compete among the best in the world of competitive dog events. The four-day event is expected to feature thousands of dog entries representing over 125 breeds.

Premier is the forum for UKC to showcase their philosophy of the Total Dog™, in which a dog should not only have the beauty necessary for the traditional show ring but also the ability to perform the functions and duties for which its breed was originally created.

This year’s
Premier is scheduled to feature UKC-licensed all breed conformation events, agility trials, obedience trials, rally obedience trials, terrier races, weight pull, lure coursing and the always entertaining dock jumping by the Ultimate Air Dogs.
