The Swedish Working Dog Association

The Swedish Working Dog Association (SBK) is an organisation for education and competition for dogs in Sweden. We are responsible for approximately 20 breeds that in Sweden are classified as working dogs. We also educate dogs for The Swedish Army and The Swedish Emergency Management Agency.

The activities within SBK are of great variation and are open for all dog owners. The activities are arranged by the 290 local associations that are spread all over Sweden.

Lots of dogs have a need to work together with people. This need can be fulfilled by letting the dog train to be a dog of duty, through other sorts of training or by competing.
