Most Versatile Aussie
The Australian Shepherd is an intelligent breed, they make exceptional companions, versatile and easily trained – performing assigned tasks with great style and enthusiasm. ASCA created the “Most Versatile Aussie” competition and Award to showcase this versatile aspect of our breed.
The “Most Versatile Aussie” Award is offered annually at the National Specialty show to recognize the dog which best combines the attributes of trainability, the desire and ability to work livestock, and a dog which faithful represents the Australian Shepherd breed standard. In short, the dog that can do it all. The MVA competition takes place over several days at the ASCA Nationals and making it through with a qualifying score is an honor in itself.
