ASCA National Specialty 2022

Welcome to the 2022 ASCA National Specialty information pages!

For those who have never attended, the Australian Shepherd Club of America’s National Specialty is an annual event that showcases Australian Shepherds in a variety of competitive events over a period of nine days. These competitive events include stockdog trials, obedience, rally, agility, conformation, junior handling, dock jumping, and tracking. You will also find educational seminars and social events, such as the Nationals Banquet where the Most Versatile Aussie for 2022 will be awarded. It’s an ASCA family reunion, and there is something for every Aussie lover, whether you are new to ASCA or a longtime member.

This year will be a first – the first time ASCA has hosted the National Specialty rather than an ASCA affiliate or a consortium of affiliates. The 2022 ASCA Nationals Committee is comprised of ASCA members from across the United States, representing six different states and sixteen different ASCA affiliates! We are proud that we are a national coalition, serving ASCA by hosting the specialty on its behalf.

The 48th ASCA National Specialty will be held on October 28 – November 5, 2022, at Brazos Expo in Bryan, Texas. If you are interested in attending, please click on one of the links to the right for more information. We will continue to update these pages as we make our plans. You can also join our Facebook group at 2022 Facebook Group.

We hope to see you in Bryan in 2022!
