DSFCA history
The first time the word "breed club" was mentioned was in late 2002. During the year of 2003, conversations between 3 people, soon to be founding board members, began increasing in frequency, and concerns, "pros and cons" were weighed against one another.
Written material took form towards the end of 2003, in particular breeding guidelines and ethics for breeding, were discussed.
In june of 2004 the founding meeting of DSFCA took place in Hayward, CA in a motel room near the Golden Gate Classic ARBA show.
Present were 3 founding board members and an "outside person" writing minutes of the meeting.
First draft of constitution, breeding guidelines, and ethics of breeding, were agreed upon, and the breed club was established by the 3 founding members, signing a founding board directors agreement.
Thereby making DSFCA the first breed club in the world, outside of Scandinavia, for the breed Danish/Swedish Farmdog.

Late 2004 the Danish Breed Club's board recommends to DKK that ARBA is approved as registry of the breed in The USA, and DKK does so, opening up for cross Atlantic exchange of future US born dogs.
By March, 2005 DSFCA was approved as an incorporation of the state of Delaware.
In spring of 2006 the board expanded itself by appointing 2 new board members to a total of 5.
In September, 2006 the incorporation was granted non-profit status.

September, 2006 DSFCA becomes the first breed club in the world, outside of Scandinavia, to hold a national breed club show. This was in conjunction with ARBA's Rocky Mountain Classic in Longmont, CO.
25 Danish/Swedish Farmdogs participated.
