About Us

The Border Terrier Club of Ontario is a non-profit organization located in Ontario Canada, has been in existence since 1996 and has endeavoured to touch the many facets of the dog world, hopefully fulfilling the expectations of our membership as a whole.

We have held one BT Specialty every year since 2000. The BTCO also plans to hold several Boosters throughout the year, so stay tuned for more details.
