Who we are:
We are a small group of people dedicated to preserving and promoting the Armenian Gampr.
- Educate the prospective owners about the care and
training of Gamprs, and what to expect from the dog.
- Provide contact between owners, and between breeders
- Establish guidelines for breeding and registering dogs in
- Rescue any gamprs in need, and rehome, if possible.
- Provide educational and training assistance to owners.
Armenian Gampr Club of America
- Breed for preservation of preferred
characteristics. For example, selecting
dogs for breeding that exhibit, in this
- reliable temperament
- excellence in guarding livestock, family,
- high obedience
- good physical conformation and
- As this is a 'natural' breed, we would
prefer to breed dogs with differing
characteristics to each other, so as to
keep as much genetic variability as
possible. We do not want to breed for
any specific characteristic exclusively,
thereby inadvertently reducing the
overall health and integrity of the breed
- Breeders will check with the club for the
optimum match for their dog, in order
to keep our small gene pool as diverse
AGCA does not wish to breed primarily to a physical
standard, as we believe this has serious potential to
ruin any breed. Our goal is preservation, not
refinement. Armenia has a standard for the gampr,
which has been translated and will be used in
conjunction with the points system, and we will be using
a slightly modified version of the standard.. We are
working with certain individuals in Armenia and
elswhere to find the best genetic stock possible.
