I live on a small farm near Aschaffenburg, half an hour south-east of  Frankfurt/Main, together with my husband Lorenz. We work on about 35 ha  of grasland, breed cattle, sheep, ducks and dogs. Until the end of 2011  Lorenz did also train Westernhorses. We own Australian Shepherds since  1991. They work on the farm whenever help is needed. Since 2004 I am  active in the WEWASC. We organize two to three ASCA trials each year on  our farm. I think the work for that club is essentially important to  improve and promote the working bred Aussie in Europe.

My friend, Roland and I live in Austria to be exact in the south of NÖ.
We have been working intensely with dogs since 1996 and since a short time our dream of our own
flock of sheep comes true.
Currently we have seven Australian Shepherds and one poodle. Besides our sporting ambitions we
have been based a small Australian Shepherd breeding in Austria.
We work with our dogs in the areas, Agility, Herding and Obedience. You can find us on various trials
and agility competitions in whole Europe at regular intervals. Besides our starts on all this
competition we visit regularly herding and agility seminars at home and abroad. We organize
herding seminar at regular intervals and we will try to get further seminars on our place with wellknown
trainers.

My name is Kay Pieper I live and work as a Veterinarian in the  countryside near Cologne, Germany. Dogs are an important part of my live  since I was a little boy. Working stock with my dogs gives me one of  the most fascinating experiences of cooperation humans can have with  animals.

I am a member of WEWASC and ASCA for 8 years now, because there our working Aussies are supported best.

In my opinion, trials and other Aussie herding events are important  to strengthen the working abilities of our breed. I work in the WEWASC  Farmtrialcomitee since its beginning to work for more possibilities to  trial our dogs.

With my work for WEWASC I want to help, giving our working dogs a  better standing in Europe. Furthermore my interest, mainly jobwise, is  to work for the preservation and consolidation of our breeds health.

My name is Nicole Knor.
My  husband and I have run a craft business for 25 years. Since then,  office work and bookkeeping have been part of my everyday work.

Since  my childhood, dogs have accompanied me through my life. By Western  riding I came in the mid-90s on the Australian Shepherd and was very  impressed by this breed. In 2006, the first Australian Shepherd moved in  with us, and with him and through him, I also made the first contacts  to herding events and Trials.
Shortly thereafter, I imported another Aussie from the US and then attended regular classes and seminars.

The  first sheep were not long in coming. Meanwhile, we have a herd size of  nearly 50 animals and our dogs work them daily. Throughout the years, a  training area with various requirements has emerged, so that we can  offer herding clinics even twice a year with professional trainers in  our place.

In 2008 I joined the WEWASC and I am also a full member of the ASCA.

With the third Aussie, I started to run trials and meanwhile organized a farmtrial myself, which I would like to continue.

Through  my participation in the WEWASC I would like to actively support the  association in preserving and promoting the Australian Shepherd as a  working dog.
