Annually, Bull Terrier breeders, owners and enthusiasts from around the world attend the Dutch Bull Terrier Club (NBTC) show weekend in Leiden, The Netherlands as the NBTC hosts a stellar weekend which includes a Championship show on Saturday and a Countries Competition on Sunday. Last year, over 300 Bull Terriers were entered in the Championship show and 16 countries were represented at the Countries Competition. The BTCA has sent a team in 2015 and 2016.
We now are looking for eligible dogs to be part of Team USA 2017!
The BTCA and its Board of Directors has established the rules of participation of a team from the United States in the Country Competition, compliant with any rules determined by the NBTC for said participation.

Jurisdiction over any and all further rules, components of selection and final participation in the competition will be determined by the Board of Directors of the BTCA, who may amend, delete or add to these rules and components.
