Often I am asked about the diferences between UKC and AKC.  We currently dual register all of our dogs and some puppies in AKC & UKC. 
 
When I decided to show my dogs in conformation - I took a conformation class at a Kennel Club an hours drive from my rural location - I loved it I met some great people handling their own dogs.  I knew UKC was an owner-handled situation from my attending an event with my sister.  We spoke to many people showing and asks tons of questions - one being what is the difference between the two.
We also attended a couple AKC confromation events and learned AKC has professional handled dogs and owner handled dogs.  In UKC it is against the rules to have a professional handler be compensated for showing a dog.  I am not fully aware of the point system for AKC as we DO NOT currently show AKC. I can however tell you that in UKC you must earn 100 points for a champion and three wins with competition under three different judges.  To win a GRCH title you must win the champions class a minimum of five times with competition (a minimum of three champions in this class) under three different judges.
 
I know sounds confusing.  In addtion to all of this you must travel to the shows and usually stay overnight for a two or three day event.  I like showing UKC because they offer several area shows in Michigan and ussually thee is one every month somewhere in Michigan.  I show because it is fun to show in UKC - I have met wonderful people and made many friends.  I also have a pretty busy home life with two children and a working hobby farm - my children both show in 4-H so our summers are busy.  Having multiple show dates to choose from works for me.  UKC has recently added a pointing dog class of events and are working toward holding field type events for pointing dogs - we encourage kids and anyone looking for something fun to do with their dogs to check out UKC events its great fun!
