Anatolian Shepherd Dog Club of America

Together…We Make a Difference

The ASDCA, Inc. was founded in 1970 and is the official parent club in the United States for the Anatolian Shepherd Dog. Since its founding, the ASDCA has shared the great joy and responsibility of living with these magnificent and ancient dogs.

We are proud to announce that the Anatolian Shepherd Dog is the 144th breed to be recognized by AKC. On June 12, 1995, the American Kennel Club announced formal recognition of the Anatolian Shepherd Dog, effective to be shown in the Miscellaneous Class beginning June 1, 1996. On August 12, 1998, the American Kennel Club granted full recognition to the Anatolian Shepherd Dog effective June 1, 1999 (entered the Working Group). Anatolian Shepherd Dogs are registered by the American Kennel Club and/or the Anatolian Shepherd Dog Club of America, Inc.
