If you have an Aussie, Border Collie or other herding breed type (and heaven help you if you've got more than one!), you know that they are . . . well . . . as crazy, neurotic, remarkably intelligent, unique, extremely loving & devoted, beautiful, OCD-prone, high energy and intense as their owners. But we love 'em just as much as they love us - quirks and all!

PURPOSE: This group was created to provide an opportunity for Aussie & BC owners to meet with each other and their dogs for play dates, walks, hikes, bike rides, trips to the lake/beach, meet-ups at dog parks, and opportunities to participate in various canine-related activities (flyball, agility, canine disc, herding, etc.)

A-BC lovers are encouraged to share information about their experiences with herding/obedience/rally/agility training and about doggy daycare & boarding facilities, dog parks, local pet events, veterinarians, pet nutrition, cares & concerns w/ A-BC ownership, and tips & tricks on how to keep our A-BC's mentally stimulated and us owners from losing our minds. :-)
