About SBTC

The Sunshine Belgian Tervuren Club strives to promote the welfare, sound breeding and performance of our wonderful herding dogs by:

  • urging its members and breeders to accept the standard of the breed approved by the American Kennel Club as the only standard of excellence by which Belgian Tervuren shall be judged;

  • doing all in its power to protect and advance the interests of the breed and to encourage sportsmanlike competition at dog shows and obedience trials;

  • conducting sanctioned matches and specialty shows under the rules of the American Kennel Club.

The SBTC holds herding, agility and conformation trials throughout the year promoting the well rounded nature of the breed. We also offer seminars to enhance our members' knowledge of the breed's structure, health and training.

SBTC is an affiliate of our parent club ­ the American Belgian Tervuren Club (ABTC), which hosts a national specialty in the spring of each year. The ABTC National Specialty rotates throughout different regions of the country. The ABTC provides immense opportunities to Tervuren owners, so you are encouraged to join that organization also. Visit the ABTC website at www.ABTC.org for more information.
