The ASDCA...

…official publication, the “ANATOLIAN TIMES” is published three times a year and sent to each member of the organization. The Anatolian Times is full of information dealing with training (both for obedience and livestock protection), health tips, sound breeding practices, and articles and letters from members all over the world.

The ASDCA...

maintains an extensive library of printed information on the Anatolian Shepherd Dog, which is available to owners and the inquiring public.

Each fall, the ASDCA...

…sponsors its National Breed Specialty and Annual General Membership meeting. The Specialty is a three day affair; beginning with a banquet and ending with a membership get-together. Anatolian Shepherd Dogs from all backgrounds are welcomed at the specialty. Classes include conformation, obedience and working dogs.

The Anatolian...

…is still considered a rare breed in the United States; but thanks to the efforts of the ASDCA, we are recognized by the AKC, UKC, & CKC.

THE ANATOLIAN SHEPHERD DOG IS NOT FOR EVERYONE!

…It is important to understand that the Anatolian is a livestock guardian dog and has been for over 6,000 years. These dogs are independent thinkers and do not make easy pets.
