The Basset Hound Club of Southern California, Inc. welcomes you to the wonderful world of basset hounds. As stated below our club was established to protect and promote this unique and wonderful breed of dogs. The membership of the BHCSC is very active in showing their dogs in AKC conformation events as well as other AKC sanctioned events. In addition we have a large number of pet owners who also enjoy having basset hounds as family members. We invite you to join us in our efforts and to become active in the club. One thing you'll find about basset hound club members is that they are as fun loving and friendly as the dogs. While some of us often compete against each other in the show ring we are still great friends.
