Thank you for visiting the website for the Northern California Bearded Collie Fanciers!
The bearded collie is a Scottish herding breed recognized by the AKC in 1976, but with much older origins. They are an active and outgoing breed that requires grooming, training and exercise. To learn more about the breed, you can read the breed standard and "A Lifetime of Friendship: the Bearded Collie".
We welcome members from all over Northern California and beyond. Our members are active in many activities, from conformation to herding, agility, obedience, rally, tracking, and more. We are a regional affiliate club of the Bearded Collie Club of America. Every year we host a regional specialty with conformation, agility, herding, obedience and rally events. We also host all-breed agility trials, seminars, and a number of fun events for all beardie lovers to enjoy.
