Breed Education Seminar 2023

Seeds of Greatness: The Collie Standard

Our 2023 Breed Education seminar is returning to our roots!
Has your vision of the ideal Collie been skewed?
Does the term “Expression” leave you baffled?
Do you wonder if your Collie single-tracks?
Join us in Fort Wayne as we explore answers to these questions and many, many more!

Your Breed Education Committee is pleased to present “Seeds of Greatness: The Collie Standard”. We’ll take a retrospective look at our Standard, the revisions alongside the current iteration. We’ll explore body balance, gait, and expression. We’ll round out the seminar by moving to the ring, where you’ll experience the Standard as it comes to life.
