UKC (Universal Kennel Club)???

UKC??? I've never heard of this before and I checked into a pug puppy and the lady said she was going to register the puppies UKC.  Anyone have info on UKC that they can tell me about, please?  I've heard of CKC and AKC but not this one.  Thanks for any help.....

I checked out the site, but I have never heard of it before so I just wanted to see if any of you had.  I don't want to get a pug and it's registered to a phoney or bogus place, ya know.  I really don't care about my puggie being registered or not, but she is asking $300 for her and if she's going to be registered I want to know about the registry and I know about CKC and AKC.

If it is the UKC  that I know of it is United Kennel Club located in Kalamazoo, MI. Sometimes you will see CKC registered and it doesn't mean Caniadian Kennel Club. My dogs have all been registered, American Kennel Club, Canadian Kennel, and United Kennel Club.  I show the in conformation and obedience in all three registeries.  And you can register any breed in UKC.  As far as the litter being registered I'm not sure how that works as l resiter all my dogs individually  when I get them.  Checkout the website that RosienMikeysMom gave.  Let me know if I can be of any help.  Good Luck

When I checked it out, it seemed to me you could register legit breeds but you could also register mutts.  So, I don't know.  It doesn't sound right to me.  Like I said before, never heard of Universal before and I don't think you can just register mutts at the AKC or CKC registries.  Maybe I'm wrong.  Oh well.

Actually you can register dogs with no registration papers with both the AKC it's called a PAL # which is what I have with Hank because he doesn't have "papers", and with the CKC (Canadian Kennel Club) its call a PEN # I haven't registered Hank there yet. AKC also has a new rule this year that you can register ALL AMERICAN DOGS and show them in performance events (Obedience,Rally, Field, Agility, Tracking etc.)  All this means is that you have a  # with these clubs so you can compete in performance events. Titles can be obtained with all these clubs. These reistrations are only for individual dogs and not litters. You have to send proof of spay/neuter with these registration requests.  UKC has always accepted mixed breeds for performance events, again not litter registrations. I've also never heard of Universal Kennel Club.  The CKC that I have seen a lot of "breeders"  say their dogs are registered with is not the Canadian Kennel Club but the Continental Kennel Club.  I DON"T  think this is a legit kennel club.  It's rather complicated.  My goldens were registered with the AKC from the breeder so I was able to obtain an actual Registration # in all three (AKC, CKC and UKC)  But if the litter wasn't able to be registered you can get the #'s as stated above.  I hope I've explaned this so you can understand.  I've been showing and training dogs for so many years I understand this very well, so if you have any questions please let me know and I'll be happy to help.     Paula

Thanks Hank, you have explained it well.  I don't think this club is legit.  Or at least it doesn't sound that way to me.  I really don't care about the "papers", I just want a healthy pup knowing he/she is going to be loved and cared for by numbers of humans.  lol

And having a healthy puppy with a good temperment is the most important thing.  Good Luck with your new baby!!   Paula

Why is the Continental Kennel Club not a legit registration? I have both an AKC and a CKC registered pugs, so I'm just curious...

No, not CKC, UKC....I was checking info about a puggy and the lady said she was going to register the litter UKC, read the other posts and you will get what we were saying, lol......CKC and AKC are legit!!!

No in a previous post Hank2008 said Canadian Kennel Club is legit, and not Continental Kennel Club. Our pug isn't from Canadian and neither are we. But we do have our one pug registered with Continental Kennel Club, so I was just wondering why it isn't legit? But, keeping with the original post...I've not heard of UKC before so I'm not too sure about that one either.

nicky927,  I'm sorry for the poor choice of words regarding the Continential Kennel Club, hope I didn't offend you.  What I meant was that with these registeries (Canadian & American and United Kennel Clubs) both the Mom & Dad are generally registered and have a lenghty pedigree with all relatives being registered also.  The males are listed in the stud books in each individual breed.  From what I've read the Continential KC doesn't require these things.  Pedigrees are important in dogs that are being bred to keep the standards of the "Parent Clubs" (ex. Pug Dog Club of America) and for showing in conformation .  Breeders use these pedigrees to breed the type of dogs that we are used to seeing.  For example to keep a pug looking like a pug.  It's not important if you are not going to breed your dog.  As I've said Hank doesn't have a pedigree.  I had to send pictures to Akc to prove he is a pug to get a # to show be able him in obedience trials. There is a lot to it and it's hard for me to explain in writing.  Again I'm sorry if I offended you.      Paula

Continental Club requires the same info as well...I was looking through the forms, and one of the breeding forms requires you to have the ancestry/bloodline of both parents listed on the form, etc. I also had to send a picture when I registered our one pug with the CKC, and had to prove his parents ancestry, provide their registry #'s, etc. I know that he couldn't be registered with the AKC because he is brindle, and AKC doesn't recognize that color for the breed. I'm not offended either, but I do consider CKC to be legit, but I agree that the AKC is more widely recognized.

Continental Kennel Club is not a legitimate registry because you can get papers for dogs of unknown ancestry and proceed to breed those dogs and register their offspring. It is true that you can register these dogs with AKC as well, but they must be payed or neutered beforehand.

And when puppy mill breeders tell you a dog can't be registered with AKC because of its color, that is a lie. AKC does not deny registration to dogs with disqualifying faults. They simplyncan't be shown. They even get full registration and can be bred and their offspring registered if that's what an irresponsible breeder chooses to do.
