Essentially a working terrier
Although the Border Terrier is very adaptable and fulfils many roles, the opening paragraph of our
Breed Standard says that the
"Essentially a working terrier".
The Club is very proud of the
Breed's working traditions and issues Working Certificates to those
terriers who have proved themselves below ground.
The first Working
Certificate was issued in 1920.
