For the Border Terrier world the year 2020 will mark the centenary of a number of key


• The breed’s official recognition by the Kennel Club in the UK

• The writing of the first official breed standard

• The first show at which Kennel Club Challenge Certificates were on offer

• The founding of the Border Terrier Club


The seven UK clubs for Border Terriers have decided, even at this early stage, that when the time comes around these centenary achievements should be celebrated by staging a very special event entitled ‘Border Terriers 2020’. A working group has been set up by the clubs to plan and organise the occasion and raise funds to make it an event to remember. That group has already had an initial meeting

The provisional date for the event has been pencilled in for the weekend of May 1 to

May 4, 2020.

The search is now on for a suitable location likely to be in Border Terrier country and

plans for the occasion include:

• An international conference on the breed

• A championship show

• Match competitions

• Grooming Workshops

• Terrier Racing

• A companion dog show

• Agility competition and have a go sessions

• An exhibition of Border Terrier art and memorabilia

• Border country visits

• Social events including an evening buffet and a dinner/dance.

Through their local breed clubs, Border Terrier enthusiasts from all over the world will be invited to attend.

Euan Castel, Secretary of ‘Border Terriers 2020’ said: “We are hoping that these celebrations will be attractive to all Border Terrier fans whether they are pet owners or breeders, show or work followers or agility and obedience enthusiasts. We will be inviting people and their dogs from all over the world to come and celebrate a century of our wonderful breed in the area where it was developed. They should all now pencil the first weekend in May 2020 into their forward diaries.”

Looking to the nearer future he added: “We hope that before long we’ll have set up a Facebook Page for ‘Border Terriers 2020’ and then shortly thereafter a web page. These pages will keep everyone up to date with our plans and hopefully breed clubs and organisations devoted to the breed all over the world will eventually give links to these ‘Border Terriers 2020’ pages.”
