Performance Listing - About

The Performance Listing Program offers many opportunities and allows dogs to participate for points and titles in UKC performance events. Performance Listed dogs do not receive breeding rights. No litters may be registered from a Performance Listed dog, and no pedigrees will be maintained. The number 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.
