Arizona Working Aussies
Designed and built to showcase the working Australian shepherds.
Arizona Working Aussies (AWA), is a non-profit organization 501(c)(7) affiliate club of the Australian Shepherd Club of America. We have members throughout the western united states. We host a number of ASCA Stockdog trials for all divisions (junior, novice, started, open, and advanced) and utilize a high caliber of stock classes using cows, sheep, and ducks.
AWA in conjunction with ASCA is to protect and advance the Australian Shepherd breed, while we strive to offer a number of trials throughout the year for Australian Shepherd owners (and other ASCA approved breeds) to compete for ASCA titles in ASCA Stockdog sanctioned events.
Strive to promote, educate, and assist all owners of the breed to improve their knowledge of the breed and it's history
