In addition to offering titles directly within the UKC Field Trial program (see calendar links above), UKC accepts the record-keeping legitimacy of certain third-party sporting dog organizations. A sporting dog organization must apply to UKC for this right. For approved Affiliate organizations, UKC recognizes club title designations for dogs who are UKC registered and applies the third-party titles to their official UKC record. For UKC titles to be awarded through Affiliate events, the Affiliate must track UKC-eligible championship points and titles. The Affiliate club is then responsible for notifying UKC of new titles so that we may issue championship degrees and update dog records. Our current Affiliate Clubs are listed below.
