Have you ever wondered how your Border Collie(s) would react if he/she saw sheep and what instincts would come alive? Here’s your chance to find out while you’re at the National. You can have him/her tested at the 2018 BCSA Specialty on Thursday, November 1, 2018 from 9 a.m. to Noon. No prior experience is necessary for you or your dog. Pre-entry only.

AKC requires your dog pass two Herding Instinct Tests to earn an AKC Herding Instinct Title. This year there will be two instinct testers at the National so your dog could potentially earn his/her title. We guarantee you will have an interesting and enjoyable experience, but take no responsibility for what this experience may do to alter your life style.

To enter the Herding Instinct Test, you must fill out an AKC entry form, available in the Herding Premium. If you would like to try and earn a Herding Instinct Title, you must enter your dog on two separate tests.

Closing date for entries is October 5, 2018 at 6 p.m. CDT. Fee: $40
