Welcome to the National Bull Terrier Council (Australia) (NBTCA) website.

The NBTC(A) was formed in 1987 by a group of Bull Terrier enthusiasts who saw the need for an organisation to unite the breed in Australia

The NBTC(A) represents the interests of the Bull Terriers and Bull Terriers (Miniature) through the authority of the 9 Bull Terrier/Bull Terriers (Miniature) Clubs in Australia.

Our responsibility is to provide a platform for the education of breeders and to advance and protect the interests of the breed through events and education at a national level.


NBTC(A) Provides:


* A platform for the discussion of any issue of relevance across state borders.

* A voice for Bull Terrier/Bull Terrier (Miniature) enthusiasts at national forums hosted by the Australian National Kennel Council (ANKC).

* Bull Terrier/Bull Terrier (Miniature) Club members a voice to have matters elevated to the NBTC(A) for discussion and/or action subject to the support of his/her Club.

* The capacity, through National events, to bring together Bull Terrier/Bull Terrier (Miniature) enthusiasts from Australia and overseas, to showcase the breed and discuss contemporary issues with like minded people.
