About Us

The Barbary Coast Samoyed Club was founded in 1995 by Samoyed owners living in and around the Greater Sacramento Area of California, USA.

We share a love for the breed, an interest in all facets of owning these wonderful and versatile dogs, and a desire to promote their welfare.

Our members are breeders, conformation show exhibitors and judges, performance sport participants, working dog enthusiasts and companion dog owners. Herding, weight pull, mushing, pack hiking, therapy dog work, obedience, rally, agility, barn hunt, tracking, coursing - these are just some of the activities that we have enjoyed with our Samoyeds over the years.

COVID-19 Update

After careful consideration, and in an abundance of caution for our exhibitors, judges and club members, we regret to announce that the Barbary Coast Samoyed Club specialties on May 8th, 2020 have been canceled due to COVID-19. This decision was extremely difficult for our board to make, but we hope that everyone stays safe and healthy during this unprecedented time.

Club Events

We host two back-to-back Conformation Specialty Shows annually in May in Yuba City, California.

We have sponsored and organized fun matches, educational seminars, agility seminars, pack hikes, picnics, herding seminars and herding tests and trials and are determined to offer more activities in the future.
