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.

Puppy Awareness Week 1 - 7 September
PAW aims to make sure that puppies live healthy, happy lives with suitable owners by spreading the 'be puppy aware' message.
puppy aware involves making sure you know which dog and breed is right
for your lifestyle so that you can care for it for life, and making
sure you can separate responsible breeders from puppy farmers. Every
year the Kennel Club holds a Puppy Awareness Week (PAW) to spread this
message. See more athttp://www.thekennelclub.org.uk/our-resources/kennel-club-campaigns/puppy-farming/puppy-awareness-week/
