BCCNC 2000 B Match
The Border Collie Club of Northern California (BCCNC) was initiated in 1998 by a group of herding, conformation, and obedience competitors to promote the working Border Collie. BCCNC also established a separate entity, Border Collie Rescue of Northern California, Inc. and was very active in Border Collie rescue and public education about the Border Collie; the Rescue eventually split off as a separate 501(c)3. The Club held monthly Board meetings and quarterly member meetings, most of them associated with fun days, show and gos, clinics, herding triatrials, and BCCNC Fun
The Border Collie Club of Northern California is a member club of the AKC.
BCCNC continued as a group of active enthusiasts and held AKC B-OB matches starting in 1999. The Club held an AKC herding B trial in conjunction with an ASCA trial at the Oxford Ranch around 2000-2001. They actively pursued AKC sanctioning for obedience and conformation and held their first Border Collie Specialty in 2007. BCCNC is also licensed to hold AKC agility, herding, and scent work trials.
The mission of BCCNC is to hold AKC breed specialty shows and to protect the Border Collie through responsible breeding and ownership, to preserve the working attributes and intelligence of the breed, to prevent exploitation and abuse of the breed, and promote a spirit of encouragement and learning for the membership in all Border Collie activities, including but not limited to: herding, obedience, agility, conformation, scent work, tracking, and companion dogs.
