Specialty Show Schedule

Member Club Secretaries and Event Chairs please note:

AKC and BHCA each require that member clubs file their current membership roster yearly. Please send an electronic file of your current membership roster to the BHCA Corresponding Secretary at the beginning of the calendar year, or when notifying us about upcoming events.

Effective with shows to be held in 2014, BHCA has given a 2-year Blanket Approval to each BHCA-member local Basset Hound club licensed by AKC to hold events. You may process your application with AKC online or by regular mail without prior written approval from the BHCA Corresponding Secretary.

But you still must file your membership roster each year with AKC and BHCA. For assistance or questions, please contact the Corresponding Secretary at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
