White Swiss Shepherd Club of America

For North American enthusiasts of the
White Swiss Shepherd Dog.


The White Swiss Shepherd is listed with OFA's Canine Health Information Center (CHIC). WSS breeders now have a location to submit and track breed health data under a correct breed listing. As parent club for CHIC WSS, the WSSCA encourages all WSS breeders to test and submit data to the project for the betterment of the breed worldwide.

White Swiss Shepherd Club of America

In late 2013, a small group of people organized on behalf of the FCI papered White Swiss Shepherd, aka Berger Blanc Suisse. The WSSCA began in 2014 as a not-for-profit corporation. It is our hope that new lines will be developed with these imported dogs, and have their offspring exported back into the rest of the world to increase adherence to breed type, while improving the breed through responsible breeding practices. Our membership has been growing steadily since our inception, correlating seemingly with the numbers of people importing this breed. Our members are to breed to the FCI White Swiss Shepherd Dog breed Standard,347 and adhere to FCI circulars and rules pertaining to breeding and registration of the WSS.

Breed recognition status



We are accepting membership from anyone with a White Swiss Shepherd and enthusiasts of the breed. We do not accept American Kennel Club or Canadian Kennel Club registrations into our registry, as those registries do not recognize our breed at this time, despite our having official breed recognition with the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) since 2002.



Feel free to contact us with any White Swiss Shepherd inquiries. We look forward to hearing from you!
