United Kennel Club, Inc. has always been a great friend to hunters everywhere. We are not a company that chooses to ride the fence on the issue of hunting. We believe in the right to keep and bear arms. We view the sport of hunting as a valued family tradition that is not only a great source of recreational activity but also a necessary tool in the goals of game management. UKC publicly supports all organizations that work hard to protect gun ownership and all legal forms of hunting.
We offer a wide variety of field events for all types of hunting dog enthusiasts. The events offered by the Hunting Programs Department at UKC are designed to as closely simulate an actual hunt as possible with the exception of taking of game, which is strictly prohibited. Dogs compete, sometimes individually and sometimes in a group depending on the event, for points towards Championship and Grand Championship titles. All UKC Hunting program Events are designed around a family atmosphere where owners are not only encouraged to handle their own dog, but in some cases, specific provisions against professional handlers are in place.
Please visit our various hunting programs listed above to learn more about the wide variety of field events that UKC makes available for hunting dog enthusiasts. Celebrate your hunting heritage by joining us with your dog in the great outdoors.
