The Bearded Collie Club of Canada

The Bearded Collie Club of Canada was formed in 1970. The objectives of the Club are:
    • to encourage and promote quality in the breeding of the pure-bred Bearded Collie, to protect his heritage as a herding dog and to do all possible to bring his versatility qualities forward;
    • to urge members and breeders to accept the standard of the breed as approved by the Canadian Kennel Club as the premier standard of excellence;
    • to do all in its power to protect and advance the interests of the breed and to encourage sportsmanlike competition at conformation shows, obedience, agility and herding trials;
    • to conduct sanctioned and approved events under the Rules of the Canadian Kennel Club and to abide by the Canadian Kennel Club Code of Ethics and the Club’s Code of Ethics;
    • to publish and disseminate information about the Bearded Collie to members and the general public to educate about its health and welfare and responsible dog ownership;
    • to cooperate with the official Bearded Collie Clubs of other countries for the betterment of the breed.
    • The Club shall be operated on a non-profit basis.  Any resulting surplus shall not be used to the benefit of any member of the Club.
    • The members of the Club shall adopt and revise such By-laws as may be required to carry out these objects.

In demonstrating the versatility of the Bearded Collie the BCCC conducts Canadian Kennel Club approved events in conformation, herding, agility, obedience and rally obedience each year.

The BCCC operates a Rescue Program to provide assistance to beardies who find themselves in unfortunate circumstances when the owner and/or breeder are unknown or unable to help.
