The Carolina Working Group Association is a non-profit club whose members are exhibitors, judges, trainers, breeders, and fanciers of breeds that are assigned to the AKC Working Group. 

We had our founding meeting in Greenville, SC on February 14, 2009.  Since that time, we have had follow up meetings and have applied to AKC for an official name.  We have developed a constitution and by-laws, standing rules, and have held 2 fun matches and offered mentoring opportunities at shows.

We foster the working breeds in conformation, obedience, agility, tracking and other working breed events.  Encouraging sportsmanlike events is one of our founding guidelines. 

We meet 6 times annually, normally at a dog show in the Carolinas.  Visitors are welcome.  Information for future meetings can be found on our events page.   Location information can be found at the website.

We welcome new members who are interested in the working breeds.  Membership information can be found on that page of this web site.The Carolina Working Group Association is a non-profit club whose members are exhibitors, judges, trainers, breeders, and fanciers of breeds that are assigned to the AKC Working Group. 

Welcome to the Carolina Working Group association!
