In the mid 1960’s The Kennel Club conceived a way of communicating with each Breed Club, in breeds that supported numerous societies,
via a single representative body to be know as ‘Breed Councils’.

A Breed Council may represent any Breed with several clubs, and in 1966 The Rough Collie Breed Council was formed making it one
of the oldest Breed Councils in the United Kingdom.

Throughout its more than 40 years existence the Rough Collie Breed Council’s aims and objectives have remained:

The promotion of the Rough Collie at all levels by co-ordinating the work of its member societies.  

To present a unified voice and represent the Rough Collies in the councils of our ruling body, The Kennel Club.

To promote harmony, understand and co-operation between its member societies.

Further to a post on a private Facebook page, the Rough Collie Breed Council would like to issue the following reply to Mrs. Angela Harvey around white factor in the Rough Collie. Mrs Harvey has in her post intimated that the breed standard is to be changed to, in her words, outlaw white factoring in the Rough Collie. This is categorically unfounded and untrue. The RCBC is an advisory body comprising representatives from all 14 Breed clubs, who, on instruction of the majority of the breed clubs may act on the clubs' behalf. All items are circulated to breed club secretaries for discussion at club level, or at member level when necessary, before any action is taken or agreed. Should Mrs Harvey or any other concerned individuals require transcripts of any RCBC meetings, they should contact the Breed Club of which they are a member.
