About Hunting Beagle Nationals

The UKC Hunting Beagle National Championship brings together the outstanding Hunting Beagles and handlers from the United States and Canada to participate in the Hunting Beagle Program’s largest Hunt and Bench Show. This prestigious multi-day event is directly sponsored by United Kennel Club. The location is carefully selected on the basis of a club or clubs that can supply qualified Judges, good hunting territory, guides, and a facility to accommodate the hundreds that attend. The National Championship is a family affair and an event where old friends become reacquainted and new ones are made.
