DATE CHANGE!!! The 2014 AWMA National IPO Championship will be held December 12-14, hosted by the Central Florida Working Malinois Club

The American Working Malinois Association (AWMA) is a non-profit working dog club developed to promote and preserve the working Malinois in accordance with the FCI standard. In its country of origin, Belgium, the Malinois is one of four varieties of the Belgian Shepherd Dog distinguished by coat (Malinois, Laekenois, Groenendael, Tervuren). The AWMA is focusing on the Malinois while supporting the participation of the other Belgian breeds in the US.

As a member of the Federation Mondio Berge Belge (FMBB), the world union for the working Belgian Shepherd Dog, the AWMA sends dog/handler teams in IPO to compete internationally at the prestigious Belgian Shepherd World Championships. The AWMA collaborates with the American Belgian Malinois Club and the other Belgian breeds to send an agility team and the United States Mondioring Association to send a mondioring team to this event. AWMA is also a full member of the American Working Dog Federation (AWDF).

It is the intent of the AWMA to preserve proper working ability and soundness in character and structure through the promotion of local clubs and national events that support IPO training, seminars, and working trials. The AWMA welcomes dogs of all breeds and fully supports the promotion of the sport throughout the United States.
