"Where Knowledge Leads to Excellence"
Great News! The BTCA, Inc. is now licensed for Agility Competitions. We are planning our first Competition November 5, 2018 at the Bella Vista Training Center in Lewisberry, Pa. This will be an AKC All Breed and Mixed Breed Agility Trial. For more information contact our Companion Sport Chair Yolando Russell at firstname.lastname@example.org or (516) 623-9249. We are also on the calendar for June 17th, 2019 and November 4, 2019. If we aren't prepared by November to enter, we have a whole year to practice!! Come out and see the Biewer Terriers show off their talents.
The new 4.0 has 6 individual tests in which to evaluate the dog, giving us more information to make a better analysis of whether we have a purebred or not. We take into consideration each test result and evaluate a dogs purity based on those results. Your dog may show inconclusive on one test and still be a purebred dog. For help contact email@example.com
