Hello! My name is Karen Shivers, and I am the new program manager for UKC Nosework, Obedience, and Rally Obedience. I am very excited about my new position with the United Kennel Club.

Welcome to the first installment of the UKC Nosework Newsletter. In this first newsletter, I provide some history about the Nosework program, and I discuss what's in store for the future. I am thrilled to be a part of this great sport! You can read all about it by downloading the PDF, linked below.

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.
