The Australian Shepherd Club of New England (ASCNE) is an Australian Shepherd Club of America affiliate with 200+ members.  We meet 6 times a year and  publish "New England Aussie," the club newsletter.

The goal of ASCNE is to educate Australian Shepherd owners, both new and veteran.

In addition to education, ASCNE is also concerned with protecting Aussies. We participate in a national rescue program for purebred Australian Shepherds who need new homes. All rescued dogs are temperament tested and neutered before being placed in new homes. Placements require a donation to cover the costs to the rescue organization.

ASCNE holds several dog shows each year. These shows are held in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maine, and New Hampshire. We offer competitive obedience, agility, tracking, and stock dog trials open to all breeds, as well as conformation shows open to ASCA registered Australian shepherds. We also offer Junior Showmanship competition for children up to age 18.

Our shows are open to the public, providing an informal forum for people who want to learn more about Aussies, visit dogs, and chat with breeders and exhibitors.

While ASCNE offers many things, above all we try to be a friendly, helpful, fun group of people with a common interest. We love our dogs, and try to do the best we can with them by sharing information and learning from one another.
