Purpose Of NBCC

The National Border Collie Council (Aust) held its Inaugural Annual General Meeting in 2002, and was recognized by the Australian National Kennel Council (ANKC) same year. The NBCC is not a body to register Border Collies. Border Collies registered under the auspice of the ANKC are registered by controlling bodies at a state level; links to each state is below.


Inquiries for registration of Border Collies should be directed to the relevant state controlling body, which can be found via this link . The ANKC as a canine body was originally established to foster the conformation exhibitions, or showing aspects of the pure bred dog, with the showing of dogs being compared to the breed standard for the particular breed, in addition to maintaining a stud book of pure bred dogs, and registration of pure bred dogs.

The ANKC (cont.)

Over the years, the ANKC has expanded its operations to include canine performance activities; for example Agility, Herding and Obedience. There are a number of performance activities for dogs, both ANKC pure bred recognised, and those which do not have a recognised pedigree or are of unknown origin, named as Associates. The ANKC also promotes responsible canine ownership, and monitors canine health and welfare issues.


The registration of Border Collies bred for livestock work is undertaken by various bodies located around the states of Australia. The pinnacle body for this is the Australian Sheep Dog Workers Association, to which state bodies are affiliated.
