Dogs and owners will appreciate your patience in waiting for permission before petting any dogs. We ask that you please respect the decision of any owners.

What if it rains?

The good news is, UKC Premier always goes rain or shine! There's lots to see inside and out. The Main Expo Center is air-conditioned and features dog activities all day long. Covered viewing areas make most of the outdoor events spectator-friendly no matter the weather.
