Join ASC

The American Spaniel Club (ASC) is the parent club for the Cocker Spaniel and the primary guardian of the Cocker Spaniel breed.  ASC was founded in 1881 by a group of spaniel enthusiasts in North America and continues to support all flushing spaniel breeds. ASC hosts two major dog shows a year – the Cocker Spaniel National Specialty and the Flushing Spaniel Show, which showcases all of the spaniel breeds. ASC members determine the breed standard and code of ethics, and they participate in a variety of competitive dog show events.  The club is dedicated to the well-being of Cocker Spaniels and all flushing spaniels through education, cooperation, and training. Through our non-profit foundation, we support health research and rescue efforts.  We also have a legislative liaison who provides information to members and the public about animal welfare issues giving spaniel enthusiasts tools to shape the policies affecting our interests and breeds.

We welcome new members.  Please visit our Join ASC page to learn more about the benefits of ASC membership.
