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!

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.

Park Play
