Spring is here!

Happy Spring, everyone!

As I look out the window, I still see the snow but when I am outside hiking with the dogs, the sweet softness of spring air is undeniable. It’s always an exciting time – seeing the flowers bloom and the new life peek through the brown ground, slowly spreading green around our beautiful Western Massachusetts landscape.

But wait, what about the dogs? Well, it’s exciting for them, too. There’s new mud fashion to wear, balls to fetch, training to do and seminars to attend! Read on to see about what’s new and upcoming at PBC!

We say goodbye to winter with some fun successes from our team. Connor and his dog, Daisy, completed their Rally Novice title. My NEBCR alum, Leelah Bean, completed her Rally Advanced title and Tally ventured out of the sheepherding field to complete his Rally Novice title.
