About Us


Thank you for your interest in the Northwest Bearded Collie Club of Puget Sound. The members of NWBCC/PS are united in their love of Beardies and enjoy a variety of activities with their Beardie buddies as well as other members of the club. As our name implies, we represent the greater Seattle area and our events and meetings are held in and around the Puget Sound.

The NWBCC/PS strives to:

  • Provide opportunities for Beardies and their owners to come together and socialize their dogs, enjoy activities with their dogs, and learn more about Bearded Collies;
  • Encourage and promote health, quality and responsible breeding and ownership of purebred Bearded Collies;
  • To do all possible to bring their natural qualities to perfection
  • To urge members and breeders to accept the standard of the breed as approved by the American Kennel Club
  • To protect and advance the interest of the breed by encouraging sportsmanlike conduct at dog shows and trials;
  • To retain the original capabilities of the Bearded Collie by encouraging training and competition in herding, obedience, agility, and tracking;
  • To educate the public about the history, standard, care, and training of the Bearded Collie;
  • To promote a vehicle for rescue and placement of lost, abandoned, or unwanted Bearded Collies and
  • To conduct licensed specialty shows and trials under the rules and regulations of the American Kennel Club.

The NWBCC/PS conducts a wide variety of events including a regional specialty, agility trial, herding events, informative programs at club meetings, annual Christmas party, social gatherings known as Beardie Bounces, and Meet the Breed at selected dog shows. Each year we make charitable contributions to such causes as medical research for the breed, rescue groups, and Old Dog Haven.

You will find a great deal of information about our club including upcoming events, officers and board members and information about a wide variety of Beardie activities — conformation, agility, herding, obedience, rally, tracking, etc. on this website. We are a club of energetic, enthusiastic members. We hope you enjoy visiting our site and we invite you to attend one of our upcoming events listed in the Calendar of Events.
