Formed in October of 2000 by Leslie Earl and Donavon Thompson,
the NCHGA started out as the Sacramento Valley Herding Group
Assn. but quickly expanded its membership to include members from
much of Northern California and even Nevada. Our name changed to
the Northern California Herding Group Association, to reflect our
increasing membership, in January 2003.

After holding several fun matches and herding aptitude tests, all of
which have been very well received by the Herding Breeds fancy, we
received AKC-B status in February 2004. We then asked for
accelerated status to A level sanctioning and were delighted when
AKC agreed with us, granting this in July 2004. We held our A
matches in both conformation and herding, receiving full AKC
approval for licensed events in summer of 2005. We held our premier
AKC-licensed conformation show in Dixon, CA, on October 27, 2006,
with a total entry of  407 dogs! Clearly, members of NCHGA are
excited about promoting their breeds and having events to celebrate
