About American Field

The bird dog field trial pastime encompasses several facets of the game, from horseback stakes to walking events, on every upland gamebird--quail, pheasant, prairie chicken, grouse, woodcock, chukar, and Hungarian partridge.

The American Field Sportsman's Journal followed the field trial sport in America since 1874, providing its readers with the very latest news on purebred sporting dogs and field trial competition results. Though print ceased temporarily in 2020, all regular content remained available on the American Field website. UKC acquired American Field Publishing Co., in September 2021 and once again offered a print outlet available by monthly subscription, UKC® Field, beginning in March 2022.

The Field Dog Stud Book (FDSB) is the oldest purebred dog registry in the United States helping dog owners with authentic documentation, registration, certified pedigrees, and DNA services. After acquiring original publisher of FDSB, American Field Publishing Co., in September 2021, UKC assumed the role as steward of authentic FDSB documentation.
