The United States Australian Shepherd Association was established in 1990 as the parent club of the Australian Shepherd for the American Kennel Club.
As parent club to the breed, USASA represents Australian Shepherd breeders and owners across America and around the world. They are dedicated to promoting, preserving, and protecting Australian Shepherds and their owners.
USASA encourages and promotes responsible breeding and ownership. The Club supports education and education events, and conducts AKC sanctioned competitive events including conformation, herding, obedience, rally, agility, and tracking. USASA and the USASFoundation support and fund scientific research to improve the health of the breed.
Proud to be the largest single breed dog registry in North America. This organization is governed by volunteer Australian Shepherd fanciers elected by the membership and maintains a professional office staff at the central location in Bryan, Texas. ASCA provides an accurate stud book for this unique breed and offers programs in all areas where Aussies excel. ASCA is truly dedicated to preserving the Standard of Excellence.
Maintaining the Breed Standard is one of ASCA's most important responsibilities to the breed itself. This is the written description of the Australian Shepherd which breeders should adhere to, and the breed is judge by in the breed ring. The present Breed Standard was adopted in 1977.
Commonly referred to as the AKC, The American Kennel Club is dedicated to upholding the integrity of its Registry, promoting the sport of purebred dogs and breeding for type and function.
Founded in 1884, the AKC® and its affiliated organizations advocate for the purebred dog as a family companion, advance canine health and well-being, work to protect the rights of all dog owners and promote responsible dog ownership.
They sanction a variety of events that help us evaluate our breeding stock. While they are not the only breed registry available, they are the best because of their stringent regulations.
