Our Foundations

The White Swiss Shepherd Dog Club of ACT & Districts was formed in September 2016 as a social club, by a variety of people who are interested in the White Swiss Shepherd along with owners who have imported their White Swiss Shepherd as per Rules & Regulations of the ANKC.

About the Club

Once you are a member, you are the public face of the ACTDWSSDC therefore represent our public image.


We do not tell people how to breed their dogs. We give our members credit for knowing how to achieve their vision, but we are here to offer suggestions or assistance if anyone needs advice.


The White Swiss Shepherd dog is a traditional worker and excels in dog sports such as agility, tracking and obedience.
These dogs also work in search and rescue, pets for therapy, and make great companion dogs for active people and families.


We expect breeders to aim to improve their lines each time they breed. The commitment and expense of breeding deserves to bring a positive outcome. We are here to assist breeders and puppy buyers to achieve.

All of our members receive our news letter 'Chin Wag'
