Schipperkes are agile, active watchdogs and hunter of vermin. In appearance he is a small, thickset, cobby, black, tailless dog, with a foxlike face. In temperament, the Schipperke is curious, interested in everything around him, and is an excellent and faithful little watchdog. Originating in Belgium, the breed was first imported to America in 1888.
The Schipperke Club of America (SCA) is the national breed parent club organization for Schipperkes within the American Kennel Club. The SCA promotes the showing, responsible breeding, obedience training and competition, and versatility of the breed.
Our organization oversees most recognized Schipperke activities in the United States. The SCA brings together people interested in breeding and competition, and improving and preserving the health and character of the breed for the purposes of showing, obedience, hunting of vermin and pet ownership. It is also responsible for promoting good sportsmanship at events that are held under the Schipperke Club of America.
Here you can learn about both companions and competition dogs, and about the breed’s history, temperament traits, and overall health and care.
