Other Titling Events
The BSCA worked with the AKC, the Bernese Mountain Dog Club and the America Working Malinois Association so that our dogs can trial in their Draft and IPO events. As of June, 2012 any Belgian Sheepdog earning titles at these Club’s events may add the title to their dog’s names and will be included on all future registration papers. The AKC will record titles earned since January 1, 2000 provided they can be verified. Information about the Parent Club Performance Events program including the title application form can be found at Parent Club Events.
There are four Bernese Mountain Dog Club of America drafting titles that are acknowledged –
NDD Novice Draft Dog
DD Draft Dog
NBDD Novice Brace Draft Dog
BDD Brace Draft Dog
