Welcome to the ABCA.

We are a member-owned registry with over 9000 members (Life and Annual), and we provide a full range of services to members in good standing. Our activities are overseen by a Board of Directors elected by the membership.

The ABCA exists to register, maintain and verify the pedigrees of Border Collies, to promote and foster in North America the breeding, training and distribution of reliable working Border Collies, and to promote stockdog trials and exhibitions.


We hope to be able to serve you in all of your Border Collie registration needs. Click here for a copy of the Association’s bylaws.
