We think you will get the most out of your relationship with your PBGV as you become friends with more experienced PBGV owners who can answer any questions you might have about our breed. The best way to form these friendships is to become a member of the PBGV Club of America, attend our events and even to volunteer your talents. With membership you get Saber Tails, a magazine devoted to our breed. Regardless of whether you are a new owner, or you have owned PBGVs for many years, there is something for you in Saber Tails. Published quarterly, Saber Tails will keep you up-to-date on the latest research into PBGVs, keep you current about upcoming events designed for you and your dog, and see many, many cute puppy pictures. You will love it and learn something! We hope you consider joining our PBGV family.

Our Mission

The purpose of the Membership Committee is to welcome new members to PBGVCA and to make them aware of activities and club members in their area. The committee also encourages new members to become involved in various club activities through volunteerism, by giving a brief overview of committee goals and contact persons. The Membership Committee will also continue to host a welcome table at each National, so that new members can meet each other and long time members of the club. To review membership types click here
