American Working Dog Federation

The American Working Dog Federation (AWDF) was founded on June 17, 1989 in St. Louis, Missouri. Its ongoing purpose is to develop awareness in the United States of the need to provide a strong foundation for, and to represent the working dog throughout the world.

The AWDF provides a platform for organizations dedicated to preserving the working characteristics of their breeds.

Mission and Goals

The goals shared by all member clubs of the AWDF include:

  • To preserve and protect the working heritage and character of the various working breeds.
  • To have American working titles recorded and recognized internationally and to preserve our pedigree system. All member clubs either have developed or are in the process of developing registry systems that meet the international standard.
  • To become affiliated with the Federation Cynologique Internationale (FCI). The FCI, a world recognized organization, acknowledges just one registry per nation. The AWDF is an applicant member of FCI. Presently, the AWDF participates as a guest member at FCI meetings and invitational events.
