Striving for greatness one dog at a time
Please bear with us until titling
program is complete.
Here at COWDCA we believe in thorough testing of our dogs character.
This is crucial and we believe ALL breeders should agree as this maintains the
greatness of our breed.
Any ethical breeder should adhere to thorough evaluations such as COWDCA's
when breeding such powerful dogs.
Titling your dog through COWDCA is optional
These titles are for dogs 2 years and older and have passed the COWDCA Temperament test and or passed a
Schutzhund BH recorded with USCA.
Any Breed of Dog May Be Titled Though COWDCA
If you are titling a breed other than a CO we will acccept an IPO BH Certification in lieu of our temperament test

Agility and Obedience Test - Dog may wear basket muzzle.

The dog must be willing to all obstacles. There will be an A frame, Catwalk, Tunnel, Teter-totter, Wobble bridge and a Wall jump.
