BCCSC’s Educational presentations and Links
BCCSC puts on educational talks on different subjects and also sends out educational
information via our Beardie Blast (email newsletter) to our club members. We offered a
class on grooming your Beardie several times and it was a well-attended educational
event. They discussed shampoos and conditioners, etc. We were able to then add it to
our newsletter (in printed form) out to the membership. They loved it! And yet another
time we were taught how to trim our Beardie’s feet to help from bringing the outside in to
our homes, all the mess of leaves and things that can stick to their feet.
Member suggested subjects
We had another event where Sandy Dubin gave a presentation on Emotional Support
versus Service dog versus Therapy dog, trying to help us all understand what is required
and what the differences are. You can view a short video of it here, along with the hand
outs given to the attendees.
