April 2021 Coonhound Advisor

April 1, 2021

One thing that often comes up in my thoughts is the dynamic of a lot of the coon clubs today. It seems like every week we get a couple calls from struggling clubs looking for ways to make it. Maybe the membership has gotten older. Maybe the ideas and hunts that used to work arent working anymore. On that same note, we get the same number of calls a week from people interested in opening a club. People with innovative new ideas and fire in their eyes.

Why is it then, that most of the time, those calls come from folks who are twenty miles apart?

Guided by the belief that dogs make a difference by being the best partner a human can have in the field, on the job, or in a competition event, UKC is a community for people and dogs to pursue excellence together. Founded in 1898, UKC has been dedicated to enhancing the lives of Dogs That Do More, and their owners, by providing essential resources to help owners and breeders make informed decisions. The dog-human bond is celebrated through family-friendly programs highlighting the instincts and heritage of purebred and mixed-breed dogs alike at over 15,000 licensed events annually.
