Memorial Day Hours
May 25, 2018
The UKC office will be closing at 3 p.m., Friday, May 25. We will be closed Monday, May 28, in observance of Memorial Day. We will return to normal business hours on Tuesday, May 29.
Originally known as "Decoration Day," and observed first on May 30, 1868, Memorial Day has since been changed to the last Monday of May, but the meaning remains the same to honor all those who have given so much. UKC wishes to say thank you to all who have sacrificed so greatly. Thank you, not only for your service, but thank you to the families of those individuals for their indomitable strength.
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.
