Recognition of Boerboel as a Breed in UKC

The Boerboel breed will be officially a recognized breed within UKC (United Kennel Club) effective January 2015. For those of you who are not aware, here is a quick bio of UKC from their website:

Established in 1898, the United Kennel Club is the largest all-breed performance-dog registry in the world, registering dogs from all 50 states and 25 foreign countries. More than 60 percent of its nearly 16,000 annually licensed events are tests of hunting ability, training and instinct. UKC prides itself on its family-oriented, friendly, educational events. The UKC has supported the "Total Dog" philosophy through its events and programs for over a century. As a departure from registries that place emphasis on a dog’s looks, UKC events are designed for dogs that look and perform equally well.

Now owners and breeders of Boerboels have more options to register their Boerboels. UKC is a nice alternative to AKC since the primary focus of UKC is on performance events, rather than looks and conformation shows. Many people believe that AKC has been ruining breeds by their emphasis on looks rather than function.

From now until October 31, 2014, you can register your Boerboels for a reduced rate of $10.00. After October 31, 2014, the price will go back up to the regular rate of $35.00/dog. Since the Boerboel is in the initial stages of acceptance within UKC, new registrations are being organized by one person who will collect payments and registrations for preparation for submission to UKC. The application, 3 photos of the dog (side, back and front) and the payment should be mailed to:

Victoria Clausell
52072 Copper Creek Ct.
Chesterfield, MI 48047
