ASC of Montana (ASCofMT) is an affiliate club of the Australian Shepherd Club of America (ASCA) whose objectives are to encourage and promote the breeding of purebred Australian Shepherds in such a manner as to bring their natural qualities to the highest degree attainable. We strive to educate and assist all owners of the breed to improve their knowledge of the breed and its history. We encourage ethical breeding practices and sportsmanlike competition at all dog shows and trials. ASC of MT conducts Conformation Shows, Stockdog Trials, Tracking tests, Obedience trials and other events under the rules and regulations of ASCA. We also sponsor seminars and clinics related to dog training and handler training for competition events as well as ranch work.
