UKC Registered Curly-Coated Retrievers


About UKC


A Kalamazoo, Michigan-based company founded in 1898, United Kennel Club is the largest all-breed performance-dog registry in the world, registering dogs from all 50 states and 25 foreign countries.


Celebrating the unique Total Dog philosophy, UKC events highlight the instincts and heritage of dogs that look and perform equally well, as more than 60 percent of its annually licensed events are tests of hunting ability, training, and instinct.





“Dogs have a way of finding the people who need them,
and filling an emptiness we didn’t ever know we had.”


Isaiah 43:2: “When you pass through the waters,

I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you;

when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.”



“Everyone thinks they have the best dog. And none of them are wrong.” — W.R. Purche


Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.”


“What a beautiful world it would be if people had hearts like dogs.”




Dogs are wise.

They crawl away into a quiet corner and lick their wounds
and do not rejoin the world until they are whole once more.


Matthew 11:28: “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
