tasked with the responsibility of guiding and shaping the Boerboel in America over time and through a democratic process. Other important
work for the club includes educating the general public as well as AKC Judges about the Boerboel; helping potential owners find an
appropriate breeder; keeping members, breeders, trainers and potential owners up to date on important events including health issues;
supporting the ABC's Breeder Code of Ethics; and providing limited rescue services. Additionally, we will provide information regarding
conformation shows, Canine Good Citizen testing, ATTS testing, our own BST, and other activities beneficial to owners and their Boerboels.
We look forward to a growing membership and the opportunity to host multiple events throughout the United States.
The American Boerboel Club (ABC) was founded in July of 2006, and accepted into the AKC Foundation Stock Service Program at that time.
On January 1, 2010, the South African Boerboel was accepted into the AKC Miscellaneous group and the American Boerboel Club was
designated the Parent Club for the South African Boerboel.
At the February 2014 AKC Board Meeting, the American Boerboel Club became the official parent club for the Boerboel. The Boerboel
became eligible for AKC registration on December 1, 2014, and was eligible to compete in the Working Group beginning January 1, 2015.
AKC will maintain an open registry for the breed until January 1, 2020.
