Membership

To join the BMDCO, please complete and submit a New Membership Application by clicking on the button below. At the next general meeting, club members will vote on your application. Note that it may take a month or two for your membership to be voted on, as we have six general meetings per year. New members must have 2 current BMDCO club members to sponsor their membership. 

If you are not already a member, you need to complete the New Membership Form. If you pay for membership without submitting an application, we are not able to process your membership request.

Want to meet a sponsor? We recommend attending BMDCO events, speaking with people showing Berners at dog shows and/or attending Meet the Breed events. If you’re in Oregon, you’re sure to meet BMDCO club members.

Review membership types below carefully before submitting your application. Questions? Contact info@bmdco.org.

If you'd like to support the work of BMDCO with a contribution, your support is welcomed. BMDCO contributions are not tax-deductible.
