CCA versatility awards program is designed to recognize
Collies which have distinguished themselves in both the
breed ring and in AKC recognized performance events. These
dogs possess the conformation, temperament, intelligence,
and herding and working capabilities which represent the
essential characteristics of the breed. The versatility
awards are based on a point system which is used to weight
each title based on its difficulty.
CCA will award a certificate signed by the Club President to any
Collie, rough or smooth, owned by a CCA member, or member of a CCA
member's immediate family, in good standing with the AKC who has
fulfilled the necessary requirements. A dog fulfilling these
requirements will be listed in the permanent records of the CCA. The
versatility certificates will be awarded by the CCA President at the
next annual CCA National Specialty Show.
