Performance Listing (PL)

Performance Listing is a method for:

  • mixed breed dogs;
  • purebred dogs of unknown pedigree;
  • purebred dogs with UKC breed standard disqualifications; or
  • breeds not recognized by UKC
Mixed Breed Dogs

To obtain a UKC participant identification number in order to enter UKC Performance events and earn titles. Performance Listed dogs may compete in all applicable UKC Performance Events, and may be used in Junior Showmanship classes.

Note: the seven Coonhound breeds may apply for Performance Listing numbers which allow entry to the non-hunting events only. They may not be used in any UKC Licensed Coonhound events.

Performance Listing Application Procedures

The completed Application for Performance Listing (PDF) must be sent to UKC.

The Performance Listing Program does not carry full registration privileges; for example, breeding rights. No litters may be registered from a Performance Listed dog, and no pedigrees will be maintained. The number solely allows dogs to enter UKC events, and allows UKC to maintain the dog's competition history and issue performance titles. PL dogs may also be used in Junior Showmanship classes. PL dogs must meet the requirements to be listed as one of the breeds in the Gun Dog group and are required to be spayed or neutered to participate in HRC events only.

Performance Listing Transfer

To transfer a Performance Listed dog, the purchaser of the dog must submit a statement, signed by the original registrant, to include: the date that the dog changed hands; and the name and contact details/information of the new registrant. This is to be sent along with the previous registrant's Performance Listing Card. The new registrant will be issued an updated Performance Listing Card.
