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.

Note to our Agility Friends...
WCDFA's fall Agility Trials will be held at Haywood County Fairgrounds in Waynesville as usual, September 19-21, 2014. Judges are Brian Brane and Donna Dombourian.

We will also be hosting a one-time 3-day Agility Trial at McGough Arena in Fletcher on October 31 and November 1-2, 2014. Judges are Rick & Diane Fyfe. This All-Breed Trial will follow the Golden Retriever National Specialty held at the same site during the last week of October 2014. Premiums will be available mid-summer for both events.

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.
