Each year the United States Border Collie Handlers Association (USBCHA) holds their National Cattledog Finals competition. This event is an opportunity to showcase all of the skills and tasks that these dogs perform on a daily basis on the farm or ranch. Dog and handler teams from all over the US and Canada, work hard all year to earn enough points to qualify to compete at the national level.
This event is a huge undertaking that requires many dedicated members to donate their time and talents. The USBCHA Cattledog Committee is responsible for raising the funds to host the Finals, including securing the trial facilities, the cattle and the judge.
Your generous donation can help to make it all happen! Please help us to meet our goal and promote this great sport.

Sponsorships are a key part to make the USBCHA National Cattledog Finals possible. With the financial help of our many supporters, we can once again produce another great event which tests the skills of both working dogs and their handlers like no other in the nation.
The United States Border Collie Handlers' Association is an organization that sanctions sheep and cattle dog trials in the U.S. and Canada. It was founded in 1979 and the first USBCHA National Sheepdog Finals was held that same year. The first USBCHA National Cattledog Finals was held in 2001. The USBCHA's goal is to promote and preserve the working border collie, with an emphasis on the amazing ability to control stock in wide open spaces and take commands at great distances, but all breeds may compete at sanctioned trials and in national finals.
The American Border Collie Association is the premier registry of the border collie in the United States. The ABCA was founded in 1983 to register and promote the working border collie and provides funds to USBCHA trials, including the USBCHA National Cattle and Sheep Finals held yearly, as well as other events promoting working dogs, and funding health and genetics research.
