UKC Cur/Feist Single Registration Requirements

Revised January 1, 2008

When single registering any of the Cur/Feist breeds, a Single Registration Application designed specifically for the Cur/Feist breeds must be completed. These applications are available in all licensed hunt packets, as a download from the UKC website or by contacting the UKC Registration Department. Pictures are required to be included with the single registration application for all Cur/Feist breeds. The photo requirement is waived if a UKC Cur/Feist Field Rep, Bench Show Judge, or Hunt Master has approved the application.


Each breed has its own requirements for registration in regards to pedigree and proof of acknowledged registry enrollment. Please refer to the following paragraphs for the specific requirements and accepted Registries for each breed recognized by UKC.

Any breed of Cur that cannot meet its pedigree or proof of registry requirements, may apply for registration as a Treeing Cur with a completed application and three photos. UKC will verify that the dog meets the Treeing Cur breed standard and will either approve them or deny them for registration.

Breed Inspectors Guidelines

As a matter of convenience to clubs offering licensed events and the enthusiasts attending those events, UKC has made it acceptable for an inspector to verify breed type and confirm registry requirements for certain breeds. The following guidelines MUST be followed in order for a breed inspector verified single registration application to be accepted:

Breed inspection authority is restricted to the following individuals only: UKC Staff, UKC Field Reps, Official UKC Breed Inspectors, UKC Licensed Hunt Masters, and UKC Licensed Cur Feist Bench Show Judges.

A breed inspector must visually verify that a dog meets the UKC breed standard for its particular breed. A breed inspector may not approve a dog for single registration that they have not visually inspected. Any dog with a disqualifying fault listed for its breed may not be accepted for single registration.
A breed inspector must be presented with, and verify documentation that, the dog to be registered is registered with a UKC approved Registry for its breed. You may not sign off on a single registration application without having been presented such documentation. If, for example, an owner wishes to register a dog as a Mountain Cur, but does not have proof of being registered with KSBA or OMCBA, then the dog may not be registered as a Moutain Cur with UKC. It may be registered as a Treeing Cur, provided it meets the Treeing Cur breed standard. The same is true for the other breeds that require proof of an acknowledged Registry.

If applicant is applying to register as one of the breeds that requires a three generation pedigree, then that pedigree information must either be written in by hand on the registration application or a three generation pedigree must be attached. Photocopies of pedigree are acceptable.

A breed inspector may not approve a dog that was whelped out of a female or by a male that the inspector owned at the time of breeding. This is not to question the integrity of anyone, but rather to lend credibility to the single registration process.

Once all the single registration requirements have been met and inspector guidelines followed, a breed inspector may approve an applicant for single registration. The preferred place to approve a single registration application is on the back, in the upper right hand corner. Please indicate such by listing the date inspected and inspector's signature. If legibility of inspector's signature is questionable, please include name in print.

Individuals found to be knowingly in violation of any of the above requirements or guidelines will be dealt with under the Inherent Rights and Powers of UKC.
