UKC® (United Kennel Club)

 In UKC your dog must also be proficient in Birch, Anise and Clove but also 2 new odors, Myrrh and Vetiver, these are also level specific target odors.  Your dog must also pass the equivalent of an odor recognition test for each target odor called a PT (pre-trial) before they can enter the level for that odor. The elements in UKC are the same as NASCW® however in UKC you are not required to pass all four in one day to earn a title. Instead you earn ‘legs’ towards your overall title by passing each element twice. In addition to earning your overall title once you have 2 passes in each element you will also earn an individual element title for containers, exterior, interior and vehicles. Your dog must be registered with UKC in order to participate in their events. Details on how to register and rules specific to UKC title levels can be found here :
