What is WASCON?
WASCON, the Working Australian Shepherd Club of Nevada, is an ASCA-affiliated stockdog club located in Nevada's beautiful Carson Valley, actively involved in the ASCA stockdog program. We also encompass an auxiliary arm called the 'Working All Breed Club of Nevada,' for hosting non-ASCA events. All herding breeds are welcome!
We occasionally have fun days just to enjoy the fellowship of working our dogs together, and at least a couple times a year, we host training clinics held by well-know stockdog trainers. Whether young or young-at-heart, you and your working dog are welcome to join us, and geography is no bar to membership.
Next Club Meeting: Wednesday, May 22nd at 6:30 p.m., Beijing Palace
4250 Cochise St, Carson City, NV 89703
