Club Programs

The ACD has traditionally been a working dog and thus the ACDCC has created two programs to acknowledge those dogs that maintain the 'Beauty, Brains & Brawn'.


The Versatility awards program was implemented by the ACDCC for two reasons:

  • An educational tool for members to promote the health, soundness and welfare of Australian Cattle Dogs &

  • A recognition program for dogs and owners who have contributed to the breed in the arenas of performance, conformation, and social responsibility.

The following 5 titles are recognised:

  • VS - Versatility Started

  • VI - Versatility Intermediate

  • VX - Versatility Excellent

  • VCH - Versatility Champion

  • VMCH - Versatility Master Champion
