2018 UKC Premier

On June 14, we drove up to Kalamazoo Michigan to attend the 25th Annual UKC Premier Dog Show. We took Senka and King Ghidora. Senka was entered in 3 days of Novice Nosework Trials, 3 days of Conformation, and as a Total Dog contestant. King Ghidora was entered in 3 days of Conformation.

Overall, we were pleased with how both dogs showed and were happy with Senka’s first foray into competitive Nosework. The final tally for the weekend was:
