The Bearded Collie Club aims to cater for ALL Beardie owners and is intent on maintaining our breed's enviable reputation and our website supports this aim by providing information on all Beardie issues and activities.

  The Health pages have now been updated to include health information for guidance in respect of Elbow Dysplasia. You can find this new information here.

  Beardie Ambassadors It is always good to learn of Beardies doing what Beardies do best - charming and delighting people - so when an author who has written children's stories featuring her two Beardies asked for representatives of the breed to support her book readings several Beardie owners and their dogs stepped in to assist. You can read all about it here. Stories involving 'Beardie Anbassadors' are always uplifting and interesting, so if you have a similar one to share, please contact the webmaster.

Bearded Collie Breed Strategy
Exchange of health information between breeders and stud dog owners when planning a mating
As part of the Breed Strategy and following the request from breeders to produce a checklist with guidance for the exchange of health information between breeders and stud dog owners when planning a mating, the JBLC has produced a checklist as to the type of questions that breeders can ask potential stud dog owners, and a longer article which expands on the checklist and covers other points to consider when choosing a stud dog - see the JBLC Breed Strategy page.

Bearded Collie Breed Strategy: Popular Sire Usage
An analysis of sire usage has been done to show what effect the recommended annual limit of 2 litters per year would have had, if it had been in place during the period 2011 - 2016. You can find the analysis here.

Website updates: Long-term Breed Health page
New links added to the following items:
Bearded Collie Health - Useful Websites for Information: a downloadable list provided by our Breed Health Co-ordinator Liz Ayrton.
Maintaining and Improving Breeds: an article on genetic diversity covering many of the issues raised in the recent workshops and the Breed Strategy event. The article is written by Dr Jerry Bell, who has also recently completed a study on genetic diversity in AKC-registered Bearded Collies.
