Overview 2025 Nationals

ASCA National Specialty

Welcome to the 2025 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, scent detection, and tracking. You will also find educational seminars and social events, such as the Nationals Banquet where the Most Versatile Aussie for 2025 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.

The 51st ASCA National Specialty will be held from September 19-27, 2025, at Winnemucca Events Complex in Winnemucca, Nevada. This year will be our first time at this location, and we are looking forward to taking advantage of this exceptional site and the town’s hospitality.

The 2025 ASCA Nationals Committee is comprised of ASCA members from across the United States, representing many different states and ASCA affiliates! We are proud that we are a national coalition, serving ASCA by hosting the specialty on its behalf.
