Who We Are . . .
We are an AKC licensed club dedicated to promoting canine events including Conformation, Obedience, Rally, Agility, and Canine Good Citizen. We are purebred dog enthusiasts but we also appreciate the beauty and abilities of the mixed-breed dog. Whatever the breed, we strongly believe responsible pet ownership is of utmost importance.

Community Dedication . . .

WCDFA recognizes the spirit and dedication of countless dogs across the nation that work side-by-side with our police forces, often sacrificing their lives for our well being. It is with great honor that we were able to donate two K9 kevlar vests to the Haywood County Sheriff's Office and Waynesville Police Department this year. This was made possible through generous donations from John R. Havrilla, Fiona and Frances Norton, WCDFA club members and those of you that show up and support our Bark in the Park pet responsibility community event. Thank you so much for protecting K9's Valor and Lenny.
