Apply for a Temporary Listing Number

About Temporary Listing numbers: A TL is used when a dog is not permanently registered and does not have a UKC Performance Listing (PL) number. The TL allows the dog to compete in events, on record, though not yet fully registered. TL numbers are valid at events licensed through the UKC Show Operations Department and Pointing Dog program only. TL numbers are not valid for events held under the rules that govern licensed Coonhound or Beagle events. Any wins, titles earned, Top Ten points, or All Star points will not reflect on the dogs record until it is permanently registered/listed. If the dog is not able to be permanently registered/listed, any wins or points earned on the dog's TL number will be invalid.

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.
