Welcome to the Kangal Dog Club of America

Message from the President of the KDCA:

On behalf of our club's board of directors, I am very pleased to announce that the United Kennel Club has officially approved our club's request for approval as their National Parent Breed Association for the Kangal Dog Breed. As many of you know, the process for approval has taken a very long time and has been achieved by hard work and input from board and club members both past and present.

I would like to thank everyone who has volunteered their time and talents to make this happen.

Best wishes,

Cedric Giraud
Kangal Dog Club of America

What is the Kangal breed?

The Kangal Dog is a native Turkish livestock guardian breed, and in Turkey this historic breed goes by no other name. It is registered in the USA by the United Kennel Club (UKC), a respected registry for over 100 years, whose focus is on the "Total Dog."

The Kangal Dog Club of America (KDCA) is the National UKC Breed Club for the Kangal Dog.
