About Our Club

What We Do

  • The PSEC meets at least 4 times yearly for meetings, practices in earthdog, and we host three weekends of tests a year. Check out our events page for our next scheduled practice or test.

  • We have fun getting together to watch our dogs enjoy doing what they were bred to do. We're really supportive of each other and our earthdogs.

  • The club offers several awards for members.

Club Objectives
