US Border Collie Handler's Association

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.

American Border Collie Association

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.

What's It About?

A team consisting of one handler directing a single dog to move a group of cattle around a course on a time limit. Each obstacle completed is worth points. The team with the most points and the fastest time wins! The video to the left explains a the trial and shows some teams competing.

Come out and watch some of the best dogs in the country competing to be the 2017 USBCHA National Champion. It begins on Thursday October 12th with the first of two qualifying rounds and runs thru Sunday the 15th where the top pointed handler and dog teams will compete in the double lift.
