Enjoying and Promoting the Australian Shepherd in NSW

Latest News

The Upcoming Year

At the 2013 AGM the majority of our office bearers were re-elected, with the exception of our new Vice President (City) Steph Betts taking over from Kelly MacPhedran. We thank Kelly for her year of service to the club and look forward to working more closely with Steph in her new role.

If anyone would like to take up any remaining committee position please get in touch with me.

Another exciting development is the official ANKC approval of our 2014 conformation judge. Ms Gail Karamalegos (USA) will be coming out to officiate for us at Easter next year. Gail is an ASCA Senior Breeder Judge as well as an AKC Breeder Judge and has judged across the US (including at Nationals) and Europe. This is her first trip down under. I hope everyone will be excited about the prospect of our first US breed specialist in NSW.

The Official Schedule is now approved and online for viewing!

We encourage everyone who hasn't yet renewed their membership to get it to us ASAP!

Statement Regarding Mini Aussies

The Miniature American/Australian Shepherd, North American Shepherd, North American Miniature Australian Shepherd, and/or Toy Australian Shepherd breeds are not recognized as a size variety of our breed by the club or the ANKC. We consider such dogs to be distinct and separate from our breed and are in no way affiliated with such breeding practices.

Our objects and purposes state that the club's purpose is: 'To promote and encourage interest in the Australian Shepherd and pure bred dogs.' It is the mission of this club and the mission of its members to preserve the breed rather than change it.
