Appraisals and Events

Since 2003, the UKBC has hosted the annual SABT appraisal. 

We aim to provide a relaxed and informal fun day where owners can bring their dogs and families and enjoy meeting other owners and breeders.

The Boerboel is not currently registered with the UK or Irish Kennel Clubs and cannot be shown in the UK.  It is birth registered with one of the Breed Organisations and is then appraised against a breed standard once it reaches 12 months of age.  A dog needs to score a minimum of 75% to be considered breedworthy.  Dogs can be appraised at a later age and can be reappraised as they mature.

Only once a dog is appraised as breedworthy is the dog fully registered.

Only pups from appraised and registered parents can be birth registered.

The SABT (South African Boerboel Breeders Association) was the first breed organisation founded and has the largest database and membership. 

2015 UK Appraisal - Sunday 17th May

SABBS / SA Studbook Annual Appraisal for UK & Ireland
Kings Langley Football Club Gaywood Park, Hempstead Road, Kings Langley, Hertfordshire WD4 8BS

The cost of having your dog appraised is £60.00 for Non SABBS / Studbook members and £50.00 for members. If you wish to have your dog appraised please contact Tracy Lilburn at

This will be an all day event and we will attempt to give you an expected time of appraisal at the time of booking so please advise if you would prefer AM or PM when you send in your application. You will need to bring along your dog's Birth Certificate as this is sent back to South Africa with the appraisal sheet for updating. If you have a female that is in season they will unfortunately have to wait until last as the scent in the appraisal area would be a distraction to the other dogs.
