Shows And Trials

There are many events to show off our versatile Aussie’s beauty and talents.

The Australian Shepherd Club of America (ASCA) sanctions shows and trials in conformation, agility, obedience, rally, stockdog, and tracking. These events are put on by local affiliate clubs throughout the United States and Europe and provide showcases to display the beauty and brains of our aussies.

Conformation events are open only to ASCA registered Australian shepherds which may be intact or altered. Dogs are judged against a standard of perfection established by ASCA. The standard includes such elements as structure, movement, color, and other factors which contribute to the perfect aussie.

Performance events are open to registered aussies and to other breeds and to mixed breeds (with some restrictions) which have obtained an ASCA tracking number. These events are each conducted according to a set of rules approved by ASCA and lead to various titles. The rules for each venue are available in hard copy from the ASCA business office or on line at the web site.
