Messenger Dog

In 2002, Jean-Luc and Annabelle Cambier found the story of Taki in an old American Kennel Club Gazette. Annabelle asked the BSCA Board if she could lead a project to honor Taki and create a historical awareness of the Belgian Sheepdogs as Messenger Dogs.

The Cambiers proposed a program of short runs in a ring as a start. These initial exercises would be ones that any well-mannered Belgian could perform at a National. The Board approved as did 2003 BSCA National Specialty Chair, Sherry Hanley. In the spring of 2003, in Allentown, PA twenty-one Belgians became the first Future Messenger Dogs.

On the 10th anniversary of the Future Messenger Dog program, in Oconomowoc, WI. the Junior Messenger Dog program was introduced.
