The ACD has traditionally been a working dog and thus the ACDCC has created two programs to acknowledge those dogs that maintain the 'Beauty, Brains & Brawn'.


The Versatility awards program was implemented by the ACDCC for two reasons:
- an educational tool for members to promote the health, soundness and welfare of Australian Cattle Dogs &
- a recognition program for dogs and owners who have contributed to the breed in the arenas of performance, conformation, and social responsibility.

The following 5 titles are recognised:

VS - Versatility Started
VI - Versatility Intermediate
VX - Versatility Excellent
VCH - Versatility Champion
VMCH - Versatility Master Champion


The Herding Dog Program was created to award dogs that excelled in what they do naturally - herd livestock

Any dog that is CKC registered and handler that is a member of ACDCC is eligible for the following awards:

Top Herding ACD of the Year
Top ACD Herding Handler OTY
Top ACD Junior Handler OTY
The Top ACD Herding Breeder OFT
