Versatility Beardies

of the Northern California Bearded Collie Fanciers

18.6% (27/145) of the BCCA Versatility Excellent Beardies


The BCCA Awards Beardies who have earned three titles in three different areas of AKC Achievement. The Championship, Obedience, Agility, Herding, and Tracking are all possible areas. Until October 1 of 1995, the HIC, the herding instinct test, counted as one of these three titles. Since that date, all Beardie herding titles must be earned in AKC competition to qualify for the award.

A vote was taken to approve a new award, one presented by Sharon Prassa to Chris Walkowicz and through her to the BCCA board. That award is the Versatility Excellent, which recognizes the attainment of 8 titles in at least three AKC areas.

We look forward to hearing from those of you whose Beardies have earned this award in earlier years. These names represent our most recent versatility Beardies, some of whom were awarded their Versatility Certificates at this year's Specialty. Many more of our Beardies are very close to earning this award, with only one major or one Obedience, Agility or Herding leg to go.
