UKC Premier 2013 - Lots of Fun, Lots of Winning!

The UKC Premier is the highlight of the UKC dog show year. Held every June in Kalamazoo, Michigan, the show is a festival of dogs that include Breed Specialties, Top Ten Competition, 3 Regular dog shows, and Agility, Rally, Obedience, NoseWork, Terrier Races, Lure Coursing, and Dock Diving, among other events.

This year, the very first American Barbet Specialty was held, hosted by the United Barbet Club. With entries from Canada and the United States, Barbet fanciers were able to meet, talk, discuss bloodlines, and go over each others dogs. Everyone had a great time, and the dogs all looked fantastic.

We loaded up our new RV with 5 dogs, 4 of whom were entered in the show. We had a great week and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly!

We had a very spacious campsite!
Ch. Hickory Tavern Intl Intrigue - Solene - won the Champion class and Reserve Best In Show at the Specialty
High Flyer Turbo of HTF - Bob - won Division 1 Agility, scoring 198/200
CallaLily O'Hickory Tavern Farm - Calla - won Best of Winners both days she was shown

Ch Nuphar's Gift Wrapped to HTF - Nessa - won the Award of Excellence in the Top Ten Competition

Nessa also won Best of Breed, completed her Championship, and won a Group 4 in the huge Gun Dog Group on Sunday
