The Buddy System
The Buddy System is a system for training your dog. It is when two or more people get together on a consistent basis, we suggest once or twice a week. They practice their various disciplines thus supporting one another's goals.
You will be surprised at how much fun this is, and how fast you and your dog will accomplish your goals! Simply put, two minds are better than one. Having the accountability of a buddy helps us stay on track. Using this for training dogs is a formula for success and it works!
People meet on Fridays beginning April 2nd at 9am and walk the Nature Path together (with or without dogs).
On the Saturday March 20th we will start our fabulous once a month Hikeabouts. We meet at 9am and are led on a hike (with or without dogs). The location changes, so call for more information.

We are always in need of people to foster or give homes to the many abandoned dogs in Tehachapi. Working closely with STOP (Save Tehachapi's Orphaned Pets) we help match pets with people.

The Bear Valley Dog Park
opened in 2011. Katy Jacobson
had the dream for a dog park in BVS and promoted it to the BVSA board who make it a reality.
Our Agility Playdays are held there.
We have contributed to such improvements as putting in a storage shed at the park and improved watering area for the dogs, planting trees around the park, better footing and beautiful Dog Park Signs.
We are currently working on getting permanent dog play equipment for the park.
"Happy Hounds Social Hour"
Members come to the dog park to meet and greet each other. Dogs are welcome. Bring a finger food to share and BYOD. We will hold two of these events this year sometime in June and after, from 5:30 to 7:00.
OTHER DIVISIONS AND CONTACTS
We need volunteers to organize these events. Please contact Molly or another board membeer if you would like to help.
