Check out the Lure Coursing Event page of this website! DSFUSA is hosting a Farmdog Social during Living With Dogs Lure Coursing on Sunday, February 13. If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area , or are planing to be around, join us for coffee, camaraderie and canine fun!!!
On January 13, 2011, DSFUSA received confirmation from Mari-Beth O'Niell that the Danish-Swedish Farmdog had passed muster with the AKC Board of Directors, and the breed has been accepted as an AKC Foundation Stock Service Breed!
This is great news! Because of the small number of Danish-Swedish Farmdogs in the USA, it is important to have pedigrees which are recognized world wide. The only dog club in the USA which is recognized world wide is the American Kennel Club (AKC).
With this step being complete the US-Born Danish-Swedish Farmdog is assured their place in the world. AKC Pedigrees give the US-Born Farmdog the documentation they need to show in conformation events in all other FCI Member Countries, as well as be bred with dogs of all other FCI Member Countries.
It's a huge step for our US breeding programs! We encourage all Farmdog owners in the USA to register for FSS status with the AKC. Registration forms are available from the AKC-FSS page of this website. Check back soon for more information regarding AKC-FSS.
