This organization is gaining more members in various countries. While they are internationally recognized and they have clubs in various countries that aurthorize shows with international judges, they are not an FCI Member Club nor are they in association with the FCI. The FCI is the only world accepted club registration for all dog breeds across the world.

In the USA, the club that is associated with the UCI is Kennel Club USA. Kennel Club USA is a for-profit privately owned club that is also associated with ARBA (the American Rare Breed Association).

While showing and titling in UCI can be fun, remember the only FCI recognized titles and pedigrees in the USA are offered and gained from the AKC (American Kennel Club).
