New league for Beardies

Suzanne Morrison came up with the idea for a Bearded Collie Agility League about when talking to other Beardie owners around the Agility circuit. Wouldn't it be great, they said, if their breed had it's own league table! As a result, she ended up taking on the task, and thus the Bearded Collie Agility League was born. The BCA League is open to all Beardies, Working Beardies and Beardie crosses.
