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.
We are able to accept VISA for payment of membership, registrations, etc. for a small handling fee. Further details are available on our Membership Form or our Registration Form.
