Premier 2019

This annual event features thousands of dog entries, generally representing over 150 different breeds. At UKC's Premier Dog Show, expect to find conformation and performance events. To earn a coveted Total Dog award at Premier, dogs must place in a conformation and performance event during the weekend, which proves them as social and athletic companions who also fit their breed standards. Started in 1994, Premier is a benchmark event for dog enthusiasts seeking to compete among the best in the world of competitive dog events. Spectators are welcome!

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.
