AMWA is very proud to currently offer 2 Working Title Schemes.
These are the ‘AMWA Working Trek Dog Title Scheme’ and the ‘AMWA Working Pack Dog title Scheme’
Brief Details are below, but for more info please hover and click on the drop down menu options under this page:
‘AMWA Working Trek Dog’
The AMWA Working Trek Dog Title scheme has been designed as a means of recognizing the achievements of your Sled dogs on Long Distance Treks organized by AMWA.
There are different levels to work towards based on a variety of distances. The titles like our AMCA counterparts are not currently recognized by the Kennel Club but can be used with your pedigree name.
The Working Trek Dog Titles can only be achieved by taking part in an official AMWA organized Long Distance Trek. Therefore the administration will be kept to a minimum and the distance achieved can be verified by an organiser.
The scheme is open to all KC & Welfare/AMWA Working No/Purebred registered Alaskan Malamutes, and all KC/registered Purebred Sled-dogs aged 12 months and over on the first day of the leg/trek.
‘AMWA Working Pack Dog’
The backpacking certificate scheme is a range of graded challenges aimed at inspiring you to go out and explore the UK countryside with your sleddog.
Whether it’s a gentle introduction to backpacking through AMWA’s family orientated weekends, or a demanding expedition through the wilderness, AMWA will support and actively encourage you to meet your goals.
Designed specifically for the UK’s terrain and campsites, the scheme offers awards for day, overnight and expedition level backpacking.
The scheme is open to all KC & Welfare/AMWA Working No/Purebred registered Alaskan Malamutes, and all KC/registered Purebred Sled-dogs aged 12 months and over on the first day of the leg/walk.
For Gold & Platinum levels dogs should be 18 months or over on the first day of the leg/walk.
This is a members only scheme.
