serving maryland, virginia and DC


Our club serves Beardie enthusiasts from Virginia, Maryland, and D.C. We hold meetings and informal get-togethers, have educational and fun programs and put on our own specialty each spring. Our members participate in conformation, obedience, herding, agility, tracking, and the adventures of being owned by Beardies.

Meet our Officers and Board.
