All club members and guests are welcome to come to our Specialty Shows (a show where only basset hounds compete). These shows provide an excellent way for anyone interested in basset hounds to see wonderful examples of the breed plus meet their owners and breeders.

By attending our shows you'll be showing your support for those club members who are doing their best to uphold the AKC Standard for Basset Hounds. They are also among the very few who are helping to maintain our wonderful breed.

At shows like this bassets are judged against the AKC Standard for Basset Hounds by licensed AKC judges. It is a written description of a perfect basset hound. It's important that all bassets are bred to this Standard. There is a copy of this Standard on our club’s website.

There are three different events each day at a BHCSC Specialty dog show before the actual main event. Early in the morning we have Obedience and Rally. These events are where bassets have been trained to perform specific tasks. Afterwards we have a Sweepstakes conformation competition. This is for puppies and veterans to compete in a more relaxed atmosphere than the actual show. Breeders get a chance to show of their young puppies and our veteran bassets get to compete as well. Sweepstakes winners get a portion of the entry money.

On both days after the Sweepstakes is an actual dog show. This event is our main event of each day. It’s where official AKC Championship and Grand Championship points can be earned. The show ends with one basset hound being selected Best of Breed. There is also a Best of Opposite Sex to Best of Breed. In addition a male and female are also awarded Select Dog and Bitch. This award includes points toward their Grand Championships. There are also some Awards of Merit for those bassets the judge feels deserve to be so honored. These are limited in number based on the number of bassets entered in the show and the judge’s discretion.

A schedule for the show weekend will be available on the BHCSC website once it is ready. You can use it to plan your day. Look for it early in the week before the show.

Bring your own comfy chairs to sit in to enjoy the shows. Plan for an enjoyable day surrounded by wonderful basset hounds and great people. Don't hesitate to ask questions. We’re a friendly bunch.

Feel free to make a lunch reservation (see Specialty Food page) or bring your own lunch. (There is a deadline for food reservations.)

We hope to see you there.
