Welcome To The
American White Shepherd Association
Est. 1995

A Club United For A Breed Apart
Established in 1995 the American White Shepherd Association is the largest White
Shepherd dog club in the U.S. and remains devoted to the protection of the health,
welfare, genetic worth and advancement of the natural abilities and attributes of the
"total" White Shepherd. We're known worldwide as AWSA. The Club also seeks to
promote worldwide recognition and acceptance of the White Shepherd as a separate and
distinct breed of working and herding dog.
The White Shepherd has
been a recognized breed
in the United Kennel Club
since 1999.
White Shepherds may not
compete in the AKC show
ring but when registered
as German Shepherd
Dogs are eligible to take
part in other AKC events
such as obedience, agility
and herding.
