The Bearded Collie Club is intent on maintaining our breed's enviable reputation and our website supports this aim by providing information on all Beardie issues and activities. The Bearded Collie Club aims to cater for ALL Beardie owners, so if you have ideas for new web pages or material please email them to the Webmaster.

Breed Strategy proposals - have your say!
Whether you own a Beardie as a pet, whether you show your Beardie or compete in any other activity with them and whether you breed or not - we want your views! The draft proposals were presented at a seminar organised by the Joint Breed Liaison Committee on 13 May and are now available for comment - see 'Shaping the Future: a Positive Direction for the Bearded Collie' on the JBLC Events page for links to the proposals and a postal questionnaire.

Website updates: Long-term Breed Health page
New links added to the following items:
Bearded Collie Health - Useful Websites for Information: a downloadable list provided by our Breed Health Co-ordinator Liz Ayrton.
Maintaining and Improving Breeds: an article on genetic diversity covering many of the issues raised in the recent workshops and the Breed Strategy event. The article is written by Dr Jerry Bell, who has also recently completed a study on genetic diversity in AKC-registered Bearded Collies.

'Give a Dog a Genome' (GDG) project
The first major milestone involving our Bearded Collie sample - sequencing the genome - has been reached. See JBLC Updates for details.

Immune-Mediated Haemolytic Anaemia (IMHA) Study
The Animal Health Trust is investigating the potential for improved treatment outcomes using an additional drug effective in humans. Although this is not Bearded Collie specific, some Beardies have suffered from IMHA - see the News page for details.
