use as a bulletin board and public information point for major news items and events. Please feel free
to mosey on down and 'like' us while you're there.
We also operate a Facebook discussion group which is available to members only.

and in the States, UKMASC produces a quarterly e-newsletter which is
emailed direct to members.
Although the MAS is
a comparatively new breed to the UK, these amazing, versatile dogs have
already made a big impact! Several have already qualified for their KC
Good Citizens Gold awards, many are working at the top of the agility
grades and have represented the breed and their country at Crufts and
major national agility finals, whilst others are enjoying flyball and
yet more have qualified as Therapy dogs, working in hospitals and
those MAS competing in agility (KC or independent) we have an annual
for members which culminates in awards at the AGM.
As the number of MAS and their enthusiasts has grown steadily, we have
organised social events for our member's information and enjoyment. Our
membership includes people with a wealth of expertise in a wide range
of canine sports and activities, so each meeting of our supporters and
members had provided an opportunity not only to socialise but to
exchange information and ideas.
Our first Herding Instinct day proved popular, with several members
travelling long distances to attend. Twelve of our dogs did very well
for their first time around stock, gaining a resounding positive
appraisal for their working potential. Our first agility training
'meet' was enormously popular too, featuring specialists in jump grids
as well as general training. We've more training meets planned for the
News and upcoming events featuring our MAS are posted on our Facebook

The UKMASC logo was specially created for us to reflect the history of the MAS and our own association with these amazing dogs.
The left part of the logo is half a Union Jack which represents the UK,
the right section comprises a line of stars which acknowledges both the
dog's native country of America, and the Australian flag to reflect the
breed's origins. The lines within the Union Jack flag and the vertical
lines formed by the stars and the UKMASC letters, support the 'stars
and stripes' feel of the logo.
We have used red white and blue as our base colours because they
comprise the national flags of the UK, the USA and Australia. The five
stars represent the first five Minis to arrive in the UK, three red
(for the girls) and two blue (for the boys.)
Members may purchase
a range of clothing and sportswear embroidered with our logo, from our

the three colour versions of the logo have been designed to complement
