Mission Statement

Mission Statement

The American Working Farmcollie Association is a performance registry dedicated to the preservation and conservation of the traditional working farm dog of Collie ancestry.

Through observation and documentation we strive to preserve and record the different working styles and traits of these traditional Working Farmcollies for both conservation and breeding purposes, to ensure that future generations of these dogs are available to suit every farm situation.

AWFA actively employs multimedia promotion and advertising to establish connections between farm families and working farm dogs in striving to restore the American Working Farmcollie to his traditional place on American farms and homesteads.
