Among the findings is the continued decline in litter and pup registrations, and dog registrations in the USA (table below); This mirrors the decline seen in UK registrations which led the Kennel Club to place the Bearded Collie on the watch list.

NEW (7/8/16):  BeaCon is completing a project on the genetic diversity of USA Bearded Collies.  Coefficients of inbreeding (10 gen) have been calculated for all dogs in the AKC Stud Books 1977-2015 if they had no missing ancestors (n=4950).  Data will be analyzed by a veterinary geneticist and the report will be available.
