The American Rat Terrier Association welcomes you to our club website and online photo gallery!


We are the national parent breed club for the Rat Terriers at UKC (United Kennel Club).

We believe in the UKC philosophy that "Our Dogs Do Stuff" and therefore promote performance trials as well as conformation events.


The Rat Terrier is an energetic, strong, alert dog whose curiosity and intelligence make him easy to train. This personality allows the Rat Terrier excel in many performance events.


The Rat Terrier is sometimes described as having a dual personality. He is a fearless, tenacious little hunter with seemingly unlimited energy. When he is not hunting, however, the Rat Terrier is an exceptionally friendly companion, getting along well with children, other dogs and even cats.


Rat Terriers enjoy human companionship immensely and will enthusiastically share any activity with their owners.
