About ASCA

We are pleased that you inquired about the Australian Shepherd and Australian Shepherd Club of America (ASCA), parent club for this wonderful breed. On this site you will find general information about the breed and ASCA. We are very proud of this breed and our club made up of dedicated Aussie fanciers.

ASCA was established as the parent club for the breed in 1957 and incorporated as a non-profit corporation. Increasing interest in competition led to the development of performance programs.

Today, these programs provide certification and titles in Agility, Conformation, Dock Jumping, Obedience, Rally, Scent Search, Stockdog, and Tracking, as well as recognition to the top Junior Handlers. These programs increased ASCA’s role to much more than a registry. ASCA-registered Aussies can earn titles in every level of competition as well as entry into ASCA’s Hall of Fame which is reserved for outstanding sires, dams, and kennels.

Non-registered Aussies and other breeds can also earn titles in every level of agility, obedience, rally, stockdog, and tracking.

ASCA has over 100 Affiliate Clubs internationally providing sanctioned shows and trials for ASCA registered Aussies and other breeds.
