Welcome to the ASDWA


The Australian Sheep Dog Workers’ Association was established in 1988 to allow sheep dog workers to speak with one voice, enabling better sponsorship and joint insurance, to conduct an Australian Championship and to administer interstate and international teams.

The mission of the ASDWA is to facilitate communications with the state working sheep dog associations, liaise with corporate sponsors, foster newcomers to the sport, organise major trials such as the annual Supreme Australian Championship, and to host and organise the annual Trans Tasman Test series between Australia and New Zealand.
