Who We Are


From kitchen table beginnings in 1984, the Ontario Border Collie Club has grown over the past 30 years and is a wholly volunteer organization promoting the working Border Collie through sanctioned trials across the province.  Our dedicated base of members endeavours to preserve this versatile breed via a number of goals & objectives:
  • Encouraging responsible breeding of the Border Collie
  • Fostering interest in the Border Collie as a working farm dog
  • Hosting training clinics and educational seminars
  • Encouraging obedience and other non-traditional uses of the Border Collie

What We Do


Some of the events our members have hosted or participated in include:
  • Kingston Sheepdog Trials
  • Ontario Triple Crown Series
  • Canadian National Sheepdog Championships
  • Winter fun trial series
  • Local farm trials across Ontario
  • Various clinics and fun days
If you have an interest in working dogs on stock, or are interested in being an informed spectator at sheep dog trials, please fill out the membership form, and send it, along with your cheque, to Sheri Purcell, our Secretary- Treasurer.
