Re: UKC or AKC?

I wish we had some UKC shows close to us, it sounds as if they are a good way for people to get introduced to the sport of conformation and have a pleasant experience.
AKC shows can be hard on some people, unfortunately.

Re: UKC or AKC?

Haha! Funny that you mention that.... Camo had to decide if he wanted to go to the UKC shows in Hickory NC this weekend and possibly get his Ch. title or go to our clubs specialty in Charlotte.... You know what we decided, but it stinks because we really wanted to try for the UKC.. maybe next time.

Re: UKC or AKC?

Yeah, I went to the UKC website and saw the Hickory one. Really not too far away, about 2 1/2 hours from our place. That's do-able for next time.
Can't wait for this weekend!!!

Re: UKC or AKC?

Interesting thread...
been wondering why there isn't more about UKC everywhere online.

USA doesn't allow UKC dogs because it isn't FCI...but I just figured that out over the weekend.

Does anyone else care to express any commentary on UKC ?
There is so little about it anywhere, if you have any experience,
or opinions, please share!

Re: UKC or AKC?

There's just not enough advertisement.
And there aren't enough shows. I can go to at least five AKC shows within 45 minutes of my house, and 15-20 all breed and specialty shows within two hours drive.

I haven't found a single UKC show in Ohio. I would gladly go if there were more shows.

Re: UKC or AKC?

I agree, I would like to go to a UKC show, just not many of them relatively close by.

Re: UKC or AKC?

I've heard some good things about the shows and judges, like
less politics, more personable critiques, but never been to either
a show nor a SDA venue training session:

Re: UKC or AKC?

I just posted about SDA in the "Schutzhund 1936" thread in the Schutzhund section. SDA is Service Dogs of America, and the titles are the working sport for UKC (ie. UKC Dog Sport is "SDA.") These protection titles are recognized in UKC pedigrees. I posted about what you can expect in some of the protection titles.

I see you're in Michigan - there will be SDA events in Michigan, and of course Premier has conformation, Dog Sport, and everything else UKC...Where are you? Some of these might be in easy driving distance.

Re: UKC or AKC?

Christine,
That is very interesting. I read your post in the Sch thread and went on the UKC site. Thanks for posting that info! Too bad UKC has very little in my area. I really want to title Camo in UKC conformation.
