    I don't know much about UKC shows since unfortunately, they are few and far between near me. I'd start with the UKC website, which will give you information and point you in the direction of upcoming events. I show in AKC but the people I know who show in UKC events have a blast. I wish we had more of them!

    UKC does do altered classes, There are no points, and typically little competition because the ones who enter ukc are using those entry fees on getting dogs finished and titled! Overall though I have to say UKC is amazing and a fun way to enter the world of dog shows :D

    Thank you for the replies. Excited as this is our first puppy in 12 years .we want to be prepared to participate in acitivitys that challenge our training and the pups abilities and strong points .any tips on the limited registration (in both clubs ukc/ akc) .want to prevent paperwork mistakes ,that would spoil the fun down the road . The fairground here in town where we live often has shows ,it would be nice to test our handling and grooming skills .

    Consider scentwork too. My Cubby was trained for scent but we have zero UKC within 4 hours of us. I am just not up for all the traveling at this point in my life. Scentwork is fun, mentally tiring, and the dogs have a blast.
