The BorderlineCollie qualificiation trial for the selection of the Belgian team World 2020 will take place in Robertville from 21 to 22 september 2019.
This trial is also an opportunity beside the qualification to gather sponsoring funding for the non profit organisation called BorderlineCollie (BLC).
This association was created in 2012 by Nathalie Tixhon-de Spa and is intended to support border collies that have no home anymore. BLC is actually active in Belgium, France, the Netherlands and Switserland. BLC was able to place about 100 border collies in new families since 1 January 2019. The organisation need support (volunteers, families to support the dogs, ...) and also some financial support (veterinary cost, dogs in long term transit etc.) This is the reason why the full profit of the activity will be donated to the BLC. So be welcome to join us and spend a enjoyable moment with us.
