The Bergamasco Sheepdog Club of America (BSCA) was formed in 1996. It’s main goal is the protection and management of the breeding of Bergamascos sheepdogs (through high quality blood lines).
All of the board members listed on this page meet the guidelines set forth by BSCA and are supported by the club in their proficiency of breeding and in depth knowledge of the Bergamasco breed, its characteristics, origins and temperament. They have all signed our breeder’s code of ethics and are active and participate in the club (See Code of Ethics).
The breeding guidelines set by BSCA are set to protect the purchaser in getting a true Bergamasco of quality, as well as protect our dogs in breeding them in a humane way offering an optimum emotional, and physical environment.
While BSCA breeders work with reputable breeding homes, it cannot insure health, quality and origins from other breeders who are not BSCA Approved Breeders. The concern is that unscrupulous breeders would use the name “Bergamasco Sheepdog” to benefit from the excellent reputation of the breed for their own purposes.
