2021 Double Header Hunt Time Update Notice
Under the new format, effective January 1, 2020, UKCs original announcement suggested that any Double Header Events (two in one day) would all be mandatory one-hour hunts. In other words, a 90-minute hunt would not be an option. Since then weve had clubs suggest that 90-minute hunts would not be an issue and they would like the option to make that decision.
UKC has retracted that mandatory policy and will leave all hunt time periods as a decision made by the host club. This is effective January 1, 2020. The amount of daylight hours changes throughout the year so clubs will need to beware and decide accordingly. The only exception to clubs deciding on their hunt time periods is WQE only events. Double Headers or not, WQE only events are mandatory 90-minute hunts.
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.
