About Bayshore Companion Dog Club!
A great place to play with your canine friends.
Bayshore Companion Dog Club (BCDC) was formed in 1950 as a New Jersey Not for Profit Corporation.
We have been in existence and continuous operation since that time. As such, we are one of the oldest AKC affiliated clubs in New Jersey.
We have been providing Dog and Puppy training for over 40 years to people in the Monmouth County, NJ area. Our training starts with Puppy Kindergarten as the basic foundation and can include other more advanced training such as Therapy Dog Training, training for the AKC Canine Good Citizen certificate, Competition Obedience training and Competition Agility training. For more information regarding our training programs, please check our Training Programs pages.But, BCDC is not just a place to train our dogs:
We are a community of animal lovers with many years of experience and volumes of knowledge that we love to share.
Some of our Club Acivities:
- We have helped the 4-H raise money to supply pet re-breather masks for several fire companies in Monmouth County.
- We have raised money to purchase a bullet proof vest for Jake, a bomb detection Golden Retriever with the Monmouth County Sheriff’s Department.
- We entertain & educate the public by putting on demonstrations annually in Obedience and Agility at the Monmouth County Fair.
- We offer free pet training for people who are raising puppies to be returned to a service dog organization.
- We consistently donate to pro-dog organizations and dogs in need including a fund for the Katrina dogs and the Monmouth County ASPCA.
Here’s what some of our members have to say:
As a relatively new member of the club I can say that what makes the club tick and makes it fun is the members. This is the nicest group of people I have ever had the opportunity to work with. From the way in which new members are greeted to the accolades members bestow on each other for their accomplishments, kindness and caring are the hallmarks of this club's members.
I think the fact that we have such wide range of ages and abilities, so many different venues to build a bond with your best (fur) friend, amongst your best (people) friends, is really unique. I've met such caring, compassionate people thru MissMolly. I feel blessed.
It really hit home when Bonnie’s cocker went missing last year. Throughout the day about 15 people showed up searching for her, passing out fliers, trekking thru yards and fields for miles and miles, giving up a day we'd paid to trial in Willingboro. I've never seen so many people drop everything and come together for (as some would say) 'just a dog'. To us, it was Bonnie's little girl, and that took priority. Dog people have heart.
